Level 3 Physics COURSE OUTLINE.

What will I learn?

  • You will develop your skills and knowledge by studying the concepts and principles of Physics.

  • Collecting data using the latest technologies will be a focus as this allows you to design your own investigations and research areas eg. theme park rides.

  • 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?

  • This course is assessed with a combination of internal and external assessments.

  • The internal assessments focus more on science skills of investigating and researching, whereas

the external assessments focus more on understanding of science concepts relating to widely accepted physics ideas.

Will there be any FAO? (Further Assessment Opportunities)

  • No.

Are there any Recommendations for level 3?

  • At least 14 credits in level 2 physics.

  • It is recommended that students pass at least 2 internals and 1 external in level 2 to proceed to level 3 physics. This is to ensure the best chance of success.
