Unit 6: Human Influences on the Marine Environment – the sixth and final comprehensive Marine Science IGCSE learning course.
Unit 6 is a fully flexible, independent-learning style pre-recorded unit covering all content related to chapter 6 in the Marine Science IGCSE Cambridge textbook. This unit is specifically designed for students who are following the Marine Science IGCSE Cambridge syllabus for the academic years 2024-2026.
This unit includes access to:
The lessons in this unit are:
Lecture 1: Overview of human influences
Lecture 2: Tourism and ecotourism
Lecture 3: Fisheries
Lecture 4: Aquaculture
Lecture 5: Energy from oceans
Lecture 6: Water pollution and eutrophication
Lecture 7: Climate change
Lecture 8: Marine conservation strategies
The course is fully flexible and can be accessed anytime over the next 2 years via a private YouTube playlist link and a Dropbox folder including the other materials.
Upon purchasing, you will immediately get access (from the ‘thank you for your order’ page) to a link to a secure DropBox folder containing all the above resources.
Please note that this course is intended for educational purposes only, and it does not include exam bookings, assessments, or exam fees. It is the responsibility of the parents, guardians, or students to arrange and book their exams with an exam centre*. The first exam sitting for this subject is in Summer 2024 in the UK.
Please keep in mind that this course is meant to provide students with all the tools necessary to learn the content, but it is ultimately up to the student to study and revise appropriately. Completion of this course does not guarantee a pass in the IGCSE Marine Science exams.
As it is iGCSE/KS4 level, it is aimed at 14-16 year olds, or those working to a KS4 Biology / Science level, or anyone working to achieve this IGCSE (or just interested in the topic!). .
I would recommend using the official textbook alongside this course (Marine Science for Cambridge IGCSE – Matthew Parkin and Paul Roobottom – 2024-2026 syllabus. It has a sea turtle on the front).
