PHYSICS 21F - Full Year

PHY21F
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Williams

Physics is the fundamental description of the physical world we live in. Students will study mechanics, waves, electricity and radioactivity in theory and by carrying out investigations. People working in industries involving Physics come in and talk to students during the year about what they do and how they became involved in their career.

This course will provide a minimum of 18 credits towards NCEA Level 2.
