Economics

 

 

 


Overview

The purpose of this Economics and Business unit is to explore the ways individuals, families, the community, businesses and governments make decisions in relation to the allocation of resources. It aims to enable students to understand the process of economic and business decision-making and its effects on themselves and others, now and in the future.

The study of economics and business develops the knowledge, understanding and skills that will inform students about the economy and encourage them to participate in and contribute to it. The curriculum examines those aspects of economics and business that underpin decision-making at personal, local, national, regional and global levels.

The civics component of the unit examines government and democracy, laws and citizenship and diversity and identity. This unit aims to introduce the four VCE disciplines of Accounting, Business Management, Economics and Legal Studies.

Geography

 

 


Overview

In Year 10 Geography we explore Environmental Change and Management with a particular focus on forests. We consider different perspectives on the ways forests are used and valued.

We undertake fieldwork in the Victorian Central Highlands, visiting the Toolangi State Forest and The Yarra Valley Chocolatiere. In the other unit for Year 10, we investigate Geographies of Wellbeing, learning about different ways of measuring human wellbeing and studying a variety of wellbeing issues in Australia and around the world.

We describe and analyse maps and data, and develop skills in explaining causes, impacts and responses to natural and human events occurring in our world.
