Nuffield science for Key Stage 3: science year 9

This series, in which a teachers' guide and activity sheets are available to complement the pupils' text, aims to offer a broad and balanced science course for 13-14-year-olds in which structured units are linked together by broader topics across the sciences.

The series is intended for use with the Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences and the MEG syllabus. The course is timed to be taught in 15 per cent of curriculum time over 30 weeks. Year 9 bridges the gap between Nuffield Science 11-13 and Nuffield Co-ordinated Science and the course meets the attainment targets set by the National Curriculum for assessment at age 14 - Key Stage 3.

The pupils' book contains data and information which complements the activity sheets and allows pupils to read about the work of sciencs and scientists both today and in the past. It also includes studies and investigations in the applications of science.
