12PHYS

Level 2 Physics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs R. Chand

Year 12 Physics

Physics is the study of matter, energy, and the interactions between them. In this course,

you will learn about light and waves, motion and energy and electromagnetism. You will
also be introduced to Atomic Physics, which lays the foundation for studying Quantum
Physics in Year 13.

Through demonstrations and experiments, students experience physical events in the real world and are able to determine mathematical relationships. The entire course is supported by PowerPoint presentations and computer animations aid understanding by allowing complex concepts to be visualised. Course workbooks are used to improve problem solving skills and test the application of theory to real life contexts. Videos, research and class discussions further enhance the students understanding and enjoyment of the course. 

  • Endorsement in Physics requires students to obtain a minimum of 14 Credits and at least 3 of these credits from externally assessed standards and 3 credits from internally assessed standards at either Merit or Excellence level.
