Australian curriculum content descriptions

(ACSSU177) All matter is made of atoms which are composed of protons, neutrons and electrons; natural radioactivity arises from the decay of nuclei in atoms

(ACSSU182) Energy transfer through different mediums can be explained using wave and particle models

(ACSSU186) The atomic structure and properties of elements are used to organise them in the Periodic Table

(ACSSU190) Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations
