Physics is concerned with systems, laws, models, principles and theories that explain the physical behaviour of the universe. Physics is regarded as a fundamental scientific discipline since all advances in technology can be traced, either directly or indirectly, to these fundamental physical laws and theories. The study of Physics provides students with knowledge and understanding of how the principles of Physics are applied to the development and production of machines and devices that contribute to the technological advance of societies.
The Physics Syllabus is designed to allow students to work individually and with others in practical, field and interactive activities that are related to theoretical concepts in the course. It is expected that students will apply investigative and problem-solving skills, effectively communicate scientific information and appreciate the contribution that a study of physics makes to their understanding of the world. The syllabus will assist students to develop positive values and attitudes towards the physical components of the environment and will also provide a sound foundation for those who wish to pursue further studies in the sciences.
The syllabus is arranged in six sections, namely:
A. Physical Measurements and Units
C. Thermal Physics and Kinetic Theory
D. Waves and Light
E. Electricity and Magnetism
F. The Physics of the Atom
