The student contribution amount for this unit is fully subsidised and therefore not payable by the student.
At the completion of this unit students will have covered essential core concepts in three major strands of Science: Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Physics. Through lectures, lab work and writing workshops, students will also develop practical lab skills and report writing skills necessary at introductory level study in science in preparation for the areas of: Health, Engineering, Technology, ICT and general Science.
Topics covered include: atomic structure, conservation laws, stoichiometry, cell biology, genetics, the cardiovascular system, force and the laws of motion.This unit is a good introduction prior to attempting foundation and first year level units from the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology.
