Physics at All Hallows Catholic College

Course description

Advanced level Physics builds on the knowledge and practical work learnt in the Double Science course. The key principles and fundamentals of physics effect and flow through everything from the design of the simple pen I drafted this document with to the workings of the computer I prepared it on. Few other subjects encompass such a range of topics that can explain and describe the mundane, such as how condensation collects, to the fantastic, explaining the motion of galaxies and the formation of stars. The understanding of these all start with the core of knowledge learnt in A Level Physics.

In addition the course aims to allow students to:

* Become confident citizens in a technological world,
* Recognise the usefulness and limitations of scientific method and to appreciate its application in other disciplines and in every-day life,
* Be suitably prepared for employment or further study,
* Appreciate that the applications of Physics may be both beneficial and detrimental to the individual, the community and the environment.

It is not a requirement that students study Mathematics. The emphasis is upon the student learning how to study and opportunity exists within the timetable for periods of review where it is up to the student to raise issues of concern.
