12 Physics

Overview

The study of Physics enables students to understand and appreciate the world around them. This subject requires the interpretation of physical phenomena through a study of motion in two dimensions, electricity and magnetism, light and matter, and atoms and nuclei. As well as applying knowledge to solve problems, students develop experimental, investigation design, information, and communication skills through practical and other learning activities. They gather evidence from experiments and research and acquire new knowledge through their own investigations. Stage 2 Physics is run as part of the Federation of Schools agreement and may be run at Ocean View College, or Le Fevre High based on the level of students demand.
