Australian ACARA Content Outcomes: Science

  • Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment (ACSSU043)
  • The growth and survival of living things are affected by physical conditions of their environment (ACSSU094)
  • Classification helps organise the diverse group of organisms (ACSSU111)
  • Interactions between organisms, including the effects of human activities can be represented by food chains and food webs (ACSSU112)
  • Ecosystems consist of communities of interdependent organisms and abiotic components of the environment; matter and energy flow through these systems (ACSSU176)
  • The theory of evolution by natural selection explains the diversity of living things and is supported by a range of scientific evidence (ACSSU185)
  • Sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks contain minerals and are formed by processes that occur within Earth over a variety of timescales (ACSSU153)
  • The theory of plate tectonics explains global patterns of geological activity and continental movement (ACSSU180)
  • Global systems, including the carbon cycle, rely on interactions involving the biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere (ACSSU189)
  • The Earth is part of a system of planets orbiting around a star (the sun) (ACSSU078)
  • Predictable phenomena on Earth, including seasons and eclipses, are caused by the relative positions of the sun, Earth and the moon (ACSSU115)
  • Earth’s gravity pulls objects towards the centre of the Earth (ACSSU118)
  • The universe contains features including galaxies, stars and solar systems and the Big Bang theory can be used to explain the origin of the universe (ACSSU188)
  • Advances in science and emerging sciences and technologies can significantly affect people’s lives, including generating new career opportunities (ACSHE195)
  • Advances in scientific understanding often rely on developments in technology and technological advances are often linked to scientific discoveries (ACSHE192).
  • Advances in science and emerging sciences and technologies can significantly affect people’s lives, including generating new career opportunities (ACSHE161)
  • Science understanding influences the development of practices in areas of human activity such as industry, agriculture and marine and terrestrial resource management (ACSHE136)
