Level 3 Physics

Level 3

Course Code: 3SPHY
Who can I talk to: Miss Srinivasan

Through a range of practical physics investigations students will develop their self-management 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 develop their understanding of physical world concepts and laws to solve quantitative, real-world, problems. This will prepare them for further study in Physics as they build knowledge on how physics laws have evolved over the past. Students will develop their understanding of modern physics, mechanical systems, wave systems and electrical systems. They will learn the application of the above in the real world via a range of practical activities, experiments and demonstrations. This course is suitable for students who wish to pursue further study in Physics, such as through Engineering.
