At National 3/4/5 level, pupils will draw on their knowledge, understanding and skills to investigate, through experimentation, the Physics related to the following concepts:
This unit covers key areas involving: heat as a form of energy, transformation of energy, electricity, heat energy calculations, matter is made of particles, and applications of electrical energy transfer.
This Unit covers the key areas involving: the physics of waves, sound and light, nuclear radioactivity, and motion application.
This Unit covers the key areas involving: how forces affect motion, transformation of energy and cosmology (the position of the Earth in our universe).
An experimental and investigative approach is used to develop knowledge and understanding of Physics concepts. The course develops learners’ interest and enthusiasm for Physics in a range of contexts. Skills of scientific enquiry and investigation are developed throughout the Course by investigating the applications of Physics.
