Level 2 Physics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr T. Hill

Recommended Prior Learning

To be accepted for this course students must have earned 14 or more Level 1 Science credits, including the SCI 1.1 Mechanics, the MAS 1.7 Right-angled Triangles internal & the MAS 1.2 Algebra internal, or HOF/TIC (Head of Faculty/Teacher in Charge) approval.

Level 2 Physics is aimed at helping learners understand the physical world in which we live and have a context for the technologies that we use in daily life. 

Topics include:  

Atomic and Nuclear Physics - a model of the atom, radioactivity, and nuclear reactions.

Electricity and Electromagnetism - Static electricity, DC electricity, and electromagnetism.

Mechanics - Newton’s Laws of Motion, force, motion, momentum, and energy.

Physics Investigation – conduct an experiment that investigates a non-linear physics relationship.

Physics relevant to a selected context - investigate how physics applies to a real-world context.
