Level 2 Physics
Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Sharp
On completing this course students should be able to:
•Show some of the skills and attitudes required for scientific investigation, problem solving and communication.
•Appreciate some of the applications of physics in the everyday world.
•Understand concepts and principles of physics and their use in familiar and simple unfamiliar situations.
•Carry out experimental procedures and have developed laboratory skills associated with physics.
This course covers topics of movement and energy, electricity and simple electronics, light and waves, electromagnetism, and atomic physics. Most teaching and learning is based on practical activities, problem solving, collecting data and learning to interpret this.
A set of 2 workbooks are provided by the department for use as texts. However, if a student wishes to write in her workbook, she can purchase them at a cost of $25.
It is of benefit to students to bring a laptop to lessons although they will not be disadvantaged academically if they do not. They may need to access a Chromebook from school instead.
