Pack 7: timescales of global processes

The University of York Science Education Group ensured that all the Science in the Environment packs were organised according to broad environmental themes. Within each pack, a number of specific contexts were used to introduce the science content. In addition, each pack focused on the acquisition of particular skills and introduced broader aspects of science or the environment.

Features of Pack 7
*Contexts: periodic processes on Earth; active remote sensing
*Science Content: linear and simple harmonic motion; plate tectonic theory
*Skills Emphasised: working in a group; numerical skills; interpreting evidence
*Broader Dimensions: studying extremes of size and time; the development of scientific models; the quantitiative nature of science.
