WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL LIBRARY

 

 

We are currently reviewing the school library service in our secondary schools and are keen to gather the views of students, staff and parents. We want to know what’s good about the current provision, as well as your suggestions for improvement. Even if you don’t use the library regularly we want to hear from you about what would encourage you to access it more.  The survey opens on Monday 15 April 2019 and closes on Sunday 5 May 2019 and can be accessed using the link below

Attached is a list of Study Support Sessions that are currently in place. 

Physics Senior Phase

S4 - S6

 

ADVANCED HIGHER PHYSICS

 

Course description

Rotational Motion and Astrophysics

This unit develops knowledge and understanding and skills in physics related to rotational motion and astrophysics. It provides opportunities to develop and apply concepts and principles in a wide variety of situations involving angular motion. An astronomical perspective is developed through a study of gravitation, leading to work on general relativity and stellar physics.

 

Quanta and Waves

This unit develops knowledge and understanding and skills in physics related to quanta and waves. It provides opportunities to develop and apply concepts and principles in a wide variety of situations involving quantum theory and waves. The Unit introduces non-classical physics and considers the origin and composition of cosmic radiation. Simple harmonic motion is introduced and work on wave theory is developed.

 

Electromagnetism

This unit develops knowledge and understanding and skills in physics related to electromagnetism. It provides opportunities to develop and apply concepts and principles in a wide variety of situations involving electromagnetism. The Unit develops knowledge and understanding of electric and magnetic fields and capacitors and inductors used in d.c. and a.c. circuits.

 

Investigating Physics

In this unit, learners will develop key investigative skills. The Unit offers opportunities for independent learning set within the context of experimental physics. Learners will identify, research, plan and carry out a physics investigation of their choice.
