Humanity seeks, uses and creates order in the form of systems and patterns to function in a seemingly chaotic universe. This central study examines both order and chaos within human society and the natural world. The initial focus is on social order and governance with a focus on political systems and persuasion. Students will develop and analyse their own persuasive speeches and will explore the role statistics plays in influencing voter behaviour. Humans as pattern makers will be a focus of a study examining the natural world utilising mathematical sequences and series to describe, analyse and artistically emulate the patterns seen in nature. The final module has a focus on investigating complex systems in the modern world, how resistant they are to chaos and how machines are increasingly learning to control them.
