Level 3 Physics

Course Description

Level 3 Physics - 

NCEA Level 3 Physics will utilise a mix of internal and external assessments to build on and extend what you learned in Level 2 Physics. You will start looking even more in-depth into how the world works across multiple topics, looking into both linear and rotational frames of reference. Internal assessments will look at modern physics and radioactivity, how physics creates spins, a socio-scientific issue, and you will conduct a practical investigation. External assessments will consider how the mechanics of our world work together and also how waves behave in different situations. You will also have the opportunity to look at electricity. Physics is an important subject to study for multiple career options, and essential for engineering.

For further information about Level 3 Physics see Mr Gibbs or Mrs Lincoln.
