NK 1a1
NK 1b
BIOBIO01
BIOBIO02
BIIVAT01
KEMKEM
HÅLHÅB0


Nature science NK (1a1 and 1b)

  • Sustainable development; energy, climate and impact on ecosystems, ecosystem services and resources.
  • Scientific research and methods: observation, classification, measurement, ethical questions, how to ask a scientific question that can be researched, how to be critical of scientific results.

 

Biology BIOBIO01

  • Ecosystem structure and dynamics.
  • Natural and man-made disturbances in ecosystems linked to issues of sustainability and biodiversity.
  • Sustainable development (local and global) and ways to contribute to it.
  • What defines a scientific question.
  • How models and theory are a simplification of reality and how they evolve through time.
  • How experimental work is relevant to the testing of a hypothesis.
  • Design and observation of a scientific experiment, as well as formulation of a hypothesis.
  • Analysis of results and reaching a conclusion by analysing the methodology used and sources of error.
  • Processing of biological data using simple statistical methods.
  • Forming an opinion regarding social issues based on biological explanations.

 

Biology BIOBIO02

  • Model and theory as a representation of reality. How they can be developed, generalised or replaced by new theory over time.

 

Biology in aquatic environments BIIVAT (01, 02 and 03)

  • Laboratory analysis and the study of biological relationships in different aquatic environments.
  • Aquatic organisms’ natural environments, behaviour and reproduction.
  • Basic ecology of marine environments.
  • Impact on and sustainable development of marine environments.
  • Climate and weather change and how it affects various aquatic environments.

 

Chemistry KEMKEM (01 and 02)

  • Acid-base reactions, the pH concept and the buffer effect.
  • What defines a scientific question.
  • How models and theory are a simplification of reality and how they evolve through time.
  • How experimental work is relevant to the testing of a hypothesis.
  • Design and observation of a scientific experiment, as well as the formulation of a hypothesis.
  • Analysis of results and reaching a conclusion by analysing the methodology used and sources of error.
  • Forming an opinion regarding social issues based on chemical explanations.

 

Sustainable development of the society (HÅLHÅB0)

  • Basic concepts of sustainable development.
  • Ecosystem structure, dynamics and sustainability, and the importance of biodiversity.
  • Environmental threats and challenges, with the human lifestyle illustrated via the use of, for example, the ecological footprint.
