Generally from a section, questions will be asked related to pedagogy. In lower secondary science, students learn to do the following: Many of the objectives of the syllabus are achieved by methodologies that support discovery through investigation. Although not compulsory, approximately 90 percent of lower secondary students take science as a subject. Preparation, Properties, and Uses: Copper oxide, cupric sulfate, cupric carbonate, silver chloride, and silver nitrate, 8.5. Students are allowed ample time to engage actively in learning in order to develop scientific processing skills, a better understanding of underlying science concepts, and higher order skills associated with problem solving and the application of knowledge in new contexts. Note: As part of the ongoing reform of junior cycle (lower secondary) education, a new science curriculum and assessment specification is being developed for implementation in schools in September 2016.
