The science matrix : NCEA science, biology, chemistry and physics

Author(s): George Hook

Secondary Year 11 (level 1 NCEA)

The Science Matrix is a comprehensive new compact course book covering all 24 of the content-based NCEA level 1 Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics standards (as specified in NZQA’s subject matrix) in just over 200 pages. For whatever combination of standards you choose to offer students in your Year 11 here is a single affordable textbook that covers the knowledge, understandings and skills your students require for success in both externally and internally assessed NCEA standards.Building on the long-term appeal of the Pathfinder unit format, George Hook has written numerous new units and updated existing ones to cover all bullet points of the new standards. The units closely reflect the current expectations and requirements of NCEA examiners and assessors.
