Year 12 Physics

12PHY
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: D. Young

This course aims to develop an understanding of physics concepts in the areas of: Mechanics (movement and forces), Electrical systems, Electromagnetism, and Radioactivity; to apply this knowledge in practical and theoretical situations; and to gain familiarity with practical skills associated with physics. Physics is a prerequisite for most science careers. This course provides the opportunity to gain credits towards the numeracy requirements for University Entrance.

Students can selected to complete the internal AS91169 instead of one of the externals.
