Who is this course for?
Students interested in the fundamental scientific nature of the world.
It is assumed that students have a passing grade for Year 10 Mathematics which covers algebraic re-arrangement of formulae, trigonometry and trigonometric functions. Some scientific reporting skills are highly desirable.
What will I learn
- apply science inquiry skills to design and conduct physics investigations, using appropriate procedures and safe, ethical working practices
- obtain, record, represent, analyse, and interpret the results of physics investigations
- evaluate procedures and results, and analyse evidence to formulate and justify conclusions
- develop and apply knowledge and understanding of physics concepts in new and familiar contexts
- explore and understand science as a human endeavour
- communicate knowledge and understanding of physics concepts, using appropriate terms, conventions, and representations
- Energy and Momentum
- Waves and Light
- Nuclear Models and Radioactivity
How will I be assessed?
You will demonstrate evidence of your learning assessed as Stage 1 through four tasks from the following assessment types:
- Investigations Folio: At least one practical investigation and one investigation with a focus on science as a human endeavour.
- Skills and Applications Tasks: At least one.
Physics A assumed
Travel and any associated costs to attend recommended workshops are the responsibility of the student. It is recommended that students have their own Graphics Calculator.
