L2 Physics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Kent

Level 2 Physics

Mechanics is the fundamental concept underpinning all physics understanding. 

Physics seeks to understand nature at its most fundamental level. Physicists – and students studying physics – attempt to discover and apply the general laws that govern force and motion, matter and energy, and space and time.

Mechanics is fundamental to a range of professional and exciting careers including engineering, astrophysics and geophysics. Physics students should develop sufficient scientific awareness and skills to be able to engage with these areas and nurture further interest in them.

Skills and Competencies taught:

Research skills - Finding and evaluating information and apply physics concepts to a real-world example
