|Pre-requisite||It is assumed that students have successfully completed a full year of Stage 1 Physics. Relevant mathematical skills are expected (using formula, interpreting graphs, right angled trigonometry).|
|Additional Costs||Travel to any workshops/review sessions that may be held at Open Access College.|
Students interested in the fundamental processes in nature. The study of Physics provides an understanding of the processes which determine the behaviour of systems from the very small (atoms and nuclei) to the very large (the solar system and the universe).
1. apply science inquiry skills to design and conduct physics investigations, using appropriate procedures and safe, ethical working practices
2. obtain, record, represent, analyse, and interpret the results of physics investigations
3. evaluate procedures and results and analyse evidence to formulate and justify conclusions
4. develop and apply knowledge and understanding of physics concepts in new and familiar contexts
5. explore and understand science as a human endeavour
6. communicate knowledge and understanding of physics concepts, using appropriate terms, conventions, and representations
The three strands of science to be integrated throughout student learning are:
The topics for Stage 2 Physics are:
Students study all three topics. The topics can be sequenced and structured to suit individual groups of students.
You will demonstrate evidence of your learning assessed as Stage 2 through the following assessment types:
A total of eight assessment tasks with an extra SAT or Folio to make up the number of tasks.
