12PHY

Level 2 Physics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Corner

Students following a full time course in 12 Physics may build upon the knowledge, skills and practices developed in 11SCI. Students will study aspects of waves, mechanics and electromagnetism and complete investigations and researched reports on contexts related to these topic areas.

You will learn to:
• carry out and evaluate practical physics investigations
• research and report upon a physics application in a given context
• identify, describe and explain physics concepts and principles
• solve problems which can be straightforward or complex
