Group 4 Subjects
In Seven Education, the tutors are able to not only teach the material that they would be examined externally, but able to provide guidance with their internally assessed investigative report.Out of the subjects provided by the IBO, Seven Education offer courses in:
The IB Biology sequence is organised to move from micro scale Biology, consisting of the Chemistry of life, cells, nucleic acids and proteins to features of macro biology. It is our belief that this is a more natural progression because students will understand the building blocks of Biology as we move into the more macro topics of human health and physiology, ecology and evolution. Students will be able to see how the interdependence of the smaller systems combine together to influence these macro topics. In the second part of the course we will spend time on ecology, plant systems, and evolution as well as revisiting some earlier topics in order to keep them fresh in the students’ minds.
Chemistry is an experimental science that combines academic study with the acquisition of practical and investigational skills. Chemical principles underpin both the physical environment in which we live and all biological systems. Chemistry is often a prerequisite for many other courses in higher education, such as medicine, biological science and environmental science. Both theory and practical work should be undertaken by all students as they complement one another naturally, both in school and in the wider scientific community. The DP chemistry course allows students to develop a wide range of practical skills and to increase facility in the use of mathematics. It also allows students to develop interpersonal and information technology skills, which are essential to life in the 21st century
Physics is the most fundamental of the experimental sciences, as it seeks to explain the universe itself from the very smallest particles—currently accepted as quarks, which may be truly fundamental—to the vast distances between galaxies.1 It is a truly all-encompassing subject that can appeal too many and provide a both a deep philosophy of thought and a practical description of the world around us. It is a gateway into many areas of study and/or career paths; architecture, space exploration, engineering, medicine, telecommunications, nanotechnology and climate science to name just a few. For more inspirational careers have a look at physics.org. The Diploma Programme physics course includes the essential principles of the subject, such as; Measurements and uncertainties, Mechanics, Thermal physics, Waves, Electricity and magnetism, Circular motion and gravitation, Atomic, nuclear and particle physics, Energy production. Higher level students will also cover some aspects in further depth; Wave phenomena, Fields, Electromagnetic induction, Quantum and nuclear physics. Additionally, one option shall be covered.
Environmental Systems and Societies
Through studying environmental systems and societies (ES&S) students will be provided with a coherent perspective of the interrelationships between environmental systems and societies; one that enables them to adopt an informed personal response to the wide range of pressing environmental issues that they will inevitably come to face. The teaching approach of our centerallow students to evaluate the scientific, ethical and socio-political aspects of issues.
