Cyril Jackson

Year 11 ATAR Physics – A1PHY & A2PHY

Unit 1 – Prerequisite: Successful completion of Year 10 Mathematics.  Physics is a mathematically based science.

The focus for this unit is thermal, nuclear and electrical physics.

physics2In it you will:
• understand how the kinetic particle model and thermodynamics concepts describe and explain heating processes
• understand how the nuclear model of the atom explains radioactivity, fission, fusion and the properties of radioactive nuclides
• understand how charge is involved in the transfer and transformation of energy in electrical circuits
• understand how scientific models and theories have developed and are applied to improve existing, and develop new, technologies
• use science inquiry skills to design, conduct and analyse safe and effective investigations into heating processes, nuclear physics and electrical circuits, and to communicate methods and findings
• use algebraic and graphical representations to calculate, analyse and predict measurable quantities associated with heating processes, nuclear reactions and electrical circuits
• evaluate, with reference to empirical evidence, claims about heating processes, nuclear reactions and electrical technologies
• communicate physics understanding using qualitative and quantitative representations in appropriate modes and genres.

Unit Cost: $30.00


Unit 2 – Prerequisite: C grade or better in Unit 1 or the equivalent.

The focus for this unit is linear motion and waves.

physics1In it you will:
• understand that Newton’s Laws of Motion describe the relationship between the forces acting on an object and its motion
• understand that waves transfer energy and that a wave model can be used to explain the behaviour of sound
• understand how scientific models and theories have developed and are applied to improve existing, and develop new, technologies
• use science inquiry skills to design, conduct and analyse safe and effective investigations into linear motion and wave phenomena, and to communicate methods and findings
• use algebraic and graphical representations to calculate, analyse and predict measurable quantities associated with linear and wave motion
• evaluate, with reference to evidence, claims about motion and sound related phenomena and associated technologies

Unit Cost: $30.00

Approximate cost of compulsory Unit 1 & 2 text books = $110
