Level 2 Physics

Level 2

Course Code: 2SPHY

Through a range of practical physics investigations students will develop their self-management skills and ability to communicate with others. Students will also develop critical thinking skills as they link experimental observations to theory. Students will explore the use of a range of scientific symbols and vocabulary.

Course Information

What Knowledge Will I Develop?

Students will gain an understanding of fundamental physical world concepts and laws to solve quantitative, real-world, problems. This will prepare them for further study in Physics. Students will develop their understanding of nuclear and atomic physics, mechanics, waves and electromagnetism. They will learn the application of the above in the real world via a range of practical activities, experiments and demonstrations. Students who intend to study Level 3 Physics should take this course.
