Level 2 Physics - Advanced

12PXA
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Reddy

LEARNING ACTIVITIES: 

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. 

Physics is an important pre-requisite for most science, engineering, technology, medical, electrical, and flying, geology, energy management, oceanography.
