WA Year 8 Science

  • Curriculum :  WA
  • Grade :  Year 8
  • Subject :  Science
  • Summary :  The teaching of Science over the span of years 7 to 10 of the WA curriculum, develops scientific inquiry skills and understanding of events and phenomena along with the human contribution to Science. These three aspects are integrated into the learning programs in a sequential and organised manner as planned by the teacher.

Course Description :

In the WA Year 8 Science course, students develop their understanding of microscopic and atomic structures, body systems, and the interdependence of organs, changes in a matter relating them to reversible or irreversible changes, various forms of energy, and their effects on change in the different systems.  The methodology adopted in WA Year 8 Science and upwards is mostly experimentation, prediction, proposing explanations, and finding evidence to support their inferences to understand various phenomena.

Edugraff offers best-in-class online tutoring in WA Year 8 Science courses to help students grasp the concept easily.
