Physics L3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: J. Kurian

Note:  It is highly recommended that Level 3 Physics is taken in conjunction with Level 3 Calculus. Content may vary from the above depending on student achievement.

 

Course Highlights:   Leading on from Level 2 Physics, this course provides more in-depth coverage of the basic ideas and concepts of Physics.  In preparation for tertiary education, students can enjoy a more intellectual approach and are expected to be motivated, independent learners.

 

Vocational Pathway: Construction and Infrastructure,   Manufacturing and Technology, Primary Industries, Social and Community Services.

 

This course can lead to:   Learning in Physics will come in useful no matter what you go on to do. Employers value the kinds of skills that studying Physics develops: the ability to grasp things quickly, focussed solution finding, plus problem solving, analytical, mathematical, and IT skills.   Level 3 Physics leads directly to higher levels of study at tertiary institutions and is a pre-requisite for many professional degrees such as surveying, architecture, engineering, medicine and dentistry.
