3. The Big Idea

Student studying

Goal: Consolidate observations and knowledge into the understanding of scientific concepts



  • Use of mind-maps, diagrams and tables to reinforce learning

The Big Idea helps students summarise everything they’ve learnt for the topic, which makes the material effective study notes!
