11 Physics (Half year course)
Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. John
NOTE: This course cannot be selected alone - you need to choose either 2 or 4 half year courses in Science.
Physics is a subject that helps us understand and think about how things happen. This course will help you to understand about electricity, magnetism, motion, force and energy as they apply in everyday life. There is practical work involved, with minimal mathematics. This course is suited to all students who like to ask…. WHY?
The course will be a half year course covering the following content so as to prepare the students to be ready for Year 12 Physics. Year 11 Physics is a pre-requisite for entry to Y12 Physics.
- Mechanics - Motion, Force, Energy
- Practical Investigation related to Mechanics and Electricity
- Electricity - Static and DC Electricity, Electromagnetism
Assessment: There will be topic tests after each topic and a summative assessment for each of Mechanics and Electricity.
**Since Y11 Physics is a half year course, you will have to select another half year Science course to complete your selection.
We aim to enable every student to have the course that they prefer, however, some courses have limited places or pre-requisits that may restrict the student's choice.
