Board Developed Course (ATAR)

A study of Physics allows students to better understand the physical world and how it works.

Students who study Physics are encouraged to use observations to develop quantitative models of real-world problems.

Physics students engage in solving equations based on these models, make predictions, and analyse the interconnectedness of physical entities.

This course provides a foundation for undertaking post-school studies in a wide range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.


To be successful in this course students need to have good literacy and numeracy skills; be self-motivated, independent workers; be able to logically develop a sequence of ideas and apply these ideas to new and unusual situations.
