Students will explore, synthesise and apply the fundamentals of the scientific method in this unit. Students will develop skills in scientific communication beyond reading and writing - through a series of seminars, lectures and self-guided tasks students will learn appropriate manipulation of mathematical and statistical data as well as data presentation. Students who successfully complete this unit will enhance their knowledge and understanding of a range of fundamental scientific concepts and will also consider issues relating to ethics, experimentation and professional practice.

|Fraction of Full-Time Student Load
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
