KLA APPLICATION AND CONSIDERATIONS

GEOGRAPHY

  • Calculates the gradient of physical features or landforms

HISTORY

  • Sequences historical events, periods and points of continuity and changes these into a chronological framework, referencing specifics

SCIENCE

  • Specifies the dependent and independent variables for controlled experiments
  • Analyses patterns and trends, including identifying inconsistencies in data
  • Selects and uses a variety of methods to organise data and information including diagrams, tables, models, spreadsheets and databases and investigates patterns and relationships within the data


add to list

GEOGRAPHY

  • Explains geographical patterns, trends, relationships and anomalies in geographical phenomena

HISTORY

  • Sequences the main waves of migration to Australia in the 40 years following World War II, identifying numbers of migrants and countries of origin

SCIENCE ADDITIONAL

  • Describes the relationship between displacement, time, velocity and acceleration using the equations of motion
  • Relates qualitatively, force, mass and acceleration and applies to everyday situations
  • Explains the relationship between resistance, voltage and current using Ohm’s Law
