Foundations of Science - FOUND012 (2023)

This paper will introduce students to the nature of Science, scientific inquiry, and fundamental scientific conceptual frameworks. We begin by looking at key concepts in Physics and Biology. We then consider key concepts in Chemistry and Earth Sciences. We will also explore how scientists gather and analyse empirical data.
