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.
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.
If you would like to take Physics Year 12 and year 13, then it is a requirement that you do a half year course on year 11 Physics. Next steps: Tertiary study in physics, medicine, veterinary science, sports science, engineering, architecture, electronics and other technological subjects.
