UPPER SECONDARY PHYSICS

Physics as science provides the fundamental understanding of how things work. Simple questions such as why water boils at 100°C to what electricity is. This will be studied by focusing on the natural phenomena and then applying the concepts and principles observed through mathematical models. The phenomena that will be covered include dynamic, heat transfer, thermodynamics, optics and acoustics and modern physics such as electrostatics and transformers. The area where most students find it difficult to learn is how to apply the concepts and mathematical models. This will affect the learning and the practice as confidence levels decrease.

Aim:
•  Provide clear everyday examples when explaining concepts
•  Develop a coherent logic on approaching a question
•  Clear concise method to analyze math-based questions
•  Instill the passion for learning beyond the syllabus
•  Integrating mathematical models and logical reasoning to help students with studying smartly
•  Time management during exams
