What are Depth Studies?A depth study is any type of investigation/activity that a student completes individually orcollaboratively that allows the further development of one or more concepts found within orinspired by the syllabus. It may be one investigation/activity or a series of investigations/activities.Depth studies provide opportunities for students to pursue their interests in Biology, Chemistry,Earth and Environmental Sciences and Physics, acquire a depth of understanding, and takeresponsibility for their own learning.Depth studies must address at least one Knowledge and Understanding outcome to a greater depth,the Questioning and predicting and Communicating outcomes, and at least two additional WorkingScientifically skills outcomes. Depth studies allow for the demonstration of a range of WorkingScientifically skills.Requirements for Depth StudiesThe two Working Scientifically outcomes of “Questioning and Predicting’and ‘Communicatingmust(mandatory) be addressed in both Years 11 and 12.Aminimumoftwo additional Working Scientifically skills outcomes, and further developmentof at least one Knowledge and Understanding outcomes, should be addresses in all depth studies.11/12-1 Questioning and PredictingStudents:odevelop and evaluate inquiry questions and hypotheses to identify a concept that can beinvestigated scientifically, involving primary and secondary data (ACSPH001,ACSPH061, ACSPH096)11/12-7 CommunicatingStudents:oselect and use suitable forms of digital, visual, written and/or oral forms ofcommunicationoselect and apply appropriate scientific notations, nomenclature and scientific language tocommunicateinavarietyofcontexts (ACSPH008,ACSPH036,ACSPH067,ACSPH102)oconstruct evidence-based arguments and engage in peer feedback to evaluate an argumentor conclusion(ACSPH034, ACSPH036)
