Upper Secondary School Science and Mathematics Enrolment Patterns in Australia, 1970-1985.
Dekkers, John; And Others
Any consideration of the status of science and mathematics education at the upper secondary school level in Australia must take into account the range of courses offered and the number of students enrolled in the different courses. This monograph describes science and mathematics curricula at national and state levels, and provides full enrollment information from 1970-1985 for upper secondary biology, chemistry, geology, physics, physical science, general science, environmental studies, agriculture, mathematics, and computing studies. Interesting features of the enrollment patterns are highlighted and discussed, while the final chapter is devoted to an analysis of the implications of the trends in Australian science and mathematics education. A bibliography contains journal articles and books categorized as general, science, and mathematics. Data sources from seven states, and their documents, are provided. (YP)
