Specification Issue 1 March 2016 Pearson Education Limited 2016. 2 Subject content,Qualification aims and objectives. GCSE study in the sciences provides the foundation for understanding the material world. Scientific understanding is changing our lives and is vital to the world s future prosperity All. students should learn essential aspects of the knowledge methods processes and uses of. science They should gain appreciation of how the complex and diverse phenomena of the. natural world can be described in terms of a small number of key ideas that relate to the. sciences and that are both inter linked and of universal application These key ideas include. the use of conceptual models and theories to make sense of the observed diversity of. natural phenomena, the assumption that every effect has one or more cause. that change is driven by differences between different objects and systems when they. that many such interactions occur over a distance without direct contact. that science progresses through a cycle of hypothesis practical experimentation. observation theory development and review, that quantitative analysis is a central element both of many theories and of scientific. methods of inquiry, These key ideas are relevant in different ways and with different emphases in the three.
subjects Examples of their relevance are given for each subject in the separate sections. below for Biology Chemistry and Physics, The three GCSE Science qualifications enable students to. develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines. of Biology Chemistry and Physics, develop understanding of the nature processes and methods of science through different. types of scientific enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world. around them, develop and learn to apply observational practical modelling enquiry and. problem solving skills in the laboratory in the field and in other learning environments. develop their ability to evaluate claims based on science through critical analysis of the. methodology evidence and conclusions both qualitatively and quantitatively. Students should study the sciences in ways that help them to develop curiosity about the. natural world that give them an insight into how science works and that enable them to. appreciate its relevance to their everyday lives The scope and nature of the study should be. broad coherent practical and satisfying It should encourage students to be inspired. motivated and challenged by the subject and its achievements. The key ideas specific to the Biology content include. life processes depend on molecules whose structure is related to their function. the fundamental units of living organisms are cells which may be part of highly adapted. structures including tissues organs and organ systems enabling living processes to be. performed effectively, living organisms may form populations of single species communities of many species. and ecosystems interacting with each other with the environment and with humans in. many different ways, Pearson Edexcel Level 1 Level 2 GCSE 9 1 in Biology 5.
Specification Issue 1 March 2016 Pearson Education Limited 2016. living organisms are interdependent and show adaptations to their environment. life on Earth is dependent on photosynthesis in which green plants and algae trap light. from the Sun to fix carbon dioxide and combine it with hydrogen from water to make. organic compounds and oxygen, organic compounds are used as fuels in cellular respiration to allow the other chemical. reactions necessary for life, the chemicals in ecosystems are continually cycling through the natural world. the characteristics of a living organism are influenced by its genome and its interaction. with the environment, evolution occurs by a process of natural selection and accounts both for biodiversity and. how organisms are all related to varying degrees, All of these key ideas will be assessed as part of this qualification through the subject. Working scientifically, The GCSE in Biology requires students to develop the skills knowledge and understanding of.
working scientifically Working scientifically will be assessed through examination and the. completion of the eight core practicals,1 Development of scientific thinking. a Understand how scientific methods and theories develop over time. b Use a variety of models such as representational spatial descriptive. computational and mathematical to solve problems make predictions and to. develop scientific explanations and an understanding of familiar and unfamiliar. c Appreciate the power and limitations of science and consider any ethical issues. that may arise, d Explain everyday and technological applications of science evaluate associated. personal social economic and environmental implications and make decisions. based on the evaluation of evidence and arguments, e Evaluate risks both in practical science and the wider societal context including. perception of risk in relation to data and consequences. f Recognise the importance of peer review of results and of communicating results. to a range of audiences, 6 Pearson Edexcel Level 1 Level 2 GCSE 9 1 in Biology. Specification Issue 1 March 2016 Pearson Education Limited 2016. 2 Experimental skills and strategies, a Use scientific theories and explanations to develop hypotheses.
b Plan experiments or devise procedures to make observations produce or. characterise a substance test hypotheses check data or explore phenomena. c Apply a knowledge of a range of techniques instruments apparatus and. materials to select those appropriate to the experiment. d Carry out experiments appropriately having due regard to the correct. manipulation of apparatus the accuracy of measurements and health and safety. considerations, e Recognise when to apply a knowledge of sampling techniques to ensure any. samples collected are representative, f Make and record observations and measurements using a range of apparatus and. g Evaluate methods and suggest possible improvements and further investigations. 3 Analysis and evaluation, Apply the cycle of collecting presenting and analysing data including. a presenting observations and other data using appropriate methods. b translating data from one form to another, c carrying out and representing mathematical and statistical analysis. d representing distributions of results and making estimations of uncertainty. e interpreting observations and other data presented in verbal diagrammatic. graphical symbolic or numerical form including identifying patterns and trends. making inferences and drawing conclusions, f presenting reasoned explanations including relating data to hypotheses.
g being objective evaluating data in terms of accuracy precision repeatability and. reproducibility and identifying potential sources of random and systematic error. h communicating the scientific rationale for investigations methods used findings. and reasoned conclusions through paper based and electronic reports and. presentations using verbal diagrammatic graphical numerical and symbolic. 4 Scientific vocabulary quantities units symbols and nomenclature. a Use scientific vocabulary terminology and definitions. b Recognise the importance of scientific quantities and understand how they are. determined, c Use SI units e g kg g mg km m mm kJ J and IUPAC chemical nomenclature. unless inappropriate, d Use prefixes and powers of ten for orders of magnitude e g tera giga mega. kilo centi milli micro and nano,e Interconvert units. f Use an appropriate number of significant figures in calculation. Pearson Edexcel Level 1 Level 2 GCSE 9 1 in Biology 7. Specification Issue 1 March 2016 Pearson Education Limited 2016. Practical work, The content includes eight mandatory core practicals indicated as an entire specification. point in italics, Students must carry out all eight of the mandatory core practicals listed below.
Core practical, 1 6 Investigate biological specimens using microscopes including magnification. calculations and labelled scientific drawings from observations. 1 10 Investigate the effect of pH on enzyme activity. 1 13B Investigate the use of chemical reagents to identify starch reducing sugars. proteins and fats,1 16 Investigate osmosis in potatoes.
