What should I have already achieved?
  • At least 12 credits in level 1 science including 2 external including electricity external.
  • Plus entry into MAT 2
  • Some students may apply for alternative entry - this will be at the discretion of the teacher in charge of the course, in consultation with the LA.

What will I learn?

You will develop your skills as a scientist by carrying out a range of physics investigations.  

Collecting data using the latest technologies will be a focus as this allows you to design your own investigations and research areas of your own interest.  

Physics concepts of force, energy and conservation laws will be applied to a wide range of contexts including nuclear medicine, sports science, engineering, outdoor adventure pursuits, electric motors and alternative energy generators.

How will this course be assessed?
A combination of 2 internal  of 7 (3+4) credits and 3 external of 16 credits (6+6+4) make up the assessments.  The internals (7 credits) include a test and an investigation.  

Will there be any FAO?  (Further Assessment Opportunities)
There are no FAO for the internals. 
How do I get into Level 3 Physics?
The Guidelines for success at Level 3 Physics is achieving at least 14 credits in level 2 physics, including 2 external.

What are the course costs? $50 for course manual/s
