13PHY

Year 13 Physics (13PHY)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr I. Wu

This course is the two external and three internal course. Choosing this course is more suited to students who passed Level 2 Physics yet struggled in the external papers. Physics credits and knowledge are still the focus for University Entrance, and builds upon the knowledge and skills acquired in Level 2 Physics to extend the students’ understanding of physical phenomena. Both courses involve complex calculations and abstract concepts. The reduced external course will not cover electrical systems.

Students may alternatively choose (or be directed into) 13PHYE Physics advanced (three externals and two internals) based on Year 12 grades. Timetable restrictions may lead for 13PHYE to have to be allocated, in which case support will be given.

Pre-requisites

At least 16 achievement credits from the Level 2 Physics (12PHY) Achievement Standards including achievement in 2.4 Mechanics external and 2.3 Waves external . The HOD Physics may allocate 13PHYE or 13PHY based on pre-requisites.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

$27 for Workbooks (purchased at OfficeMax).
