  • Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe measure and records data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS087) 
  • Construct and use a range of representations, including tables and graphs, to represent and describe observations, patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS090) 
  • Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations (ACSIS218) 
  • Communicate ideas, explanations and processes using scientific representations in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (ACSIS093)
