At ISU we teach integrated science from grade 6 to 10, which means we cover the various biology, physics and chemistry topics within a single science course. Where possible we use an experimental approach so students learn the skills of inquiry, analysis, teamwork and evaluation. Students are expected to think critically and understand how science relates to themselves, the environment and society. In MYP Science students are assessed with four criteria, each with a maximum achievement level of eight.
MYP Sciences assessment criteria:
- Criterion A: Knowing and understanding
- Criterion B: Inquiring and designing
- Criterion C: Processing and evaluating
- Criterion D: Reflecting on the impacts of science
