Level 2 Physics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Mckenzie

Recommended Prior Learning

It is recommended that you have taken Science or Mathematics in level 1.

NCEA Level 2 Physics will utilise a mix of internal and external assessments to build on and extend the physics you learn in Level 1 Science. You will start looking more in-depth into how the world works across multiple topics and why things act the way they do. Internal assessments will look at atomic physics and undergo a practical investigation. External assessments will consider how the mechanics of our world work together and you will also have the opportunity to look at waves and electricity. This is an important subject to study for multiple career options, and essential for engineering.

For further information about Level 2 Physics see Mr McKenzie or Mrs Lincoln.
