300PHY

Level 3 Physics

Course Description

Course includes:
Internal assessments are a test and a practical assessment and students are expected to use the skills learnt to plan and carry out practical work, and show safe practice for all experimental work.
•Use of models of atomic physics in describing the atomic theories.
•Seniors are expected to take responsibility for their learning, this means reading relevant chapters in the text book, and completing all class work and homework.
•To complete externals students are required to attend the Level 3 Physics examination at the end of the year.
•Handout, PowerPoint slides and experiments are done during this course.
