TO THE STUDENT

The purpose of this guide is to assist students in their preparation for tests and examinations in the new ATAR Physics course for Units 3 and 4. The structure of the topics will allow students to use the book throughout the year.

The guide closely adheres to the W.A. School Curriculum and Standards Authority ATAR syllabus. Essential theory is interwoven with revision exercises so that students will be able to actively review core theory and concepts.

Science Understanding
Essential core theory for each topic of Science Understanding is covered clearly and in detail. Illustrations and worked examples are used extensively to assist students in their learning. Throughout each chapter, questions and exercises are integrated with theory to help students clarify and consolidate their understanding of new concepts.

Review questions at the end of each chapter provide a wide range of problems. All questions and review exercises have detailed answers to provide students with immediate feedback and a means of enhancing their progress.

Trial Tests
Trial tests for each major topic provide an ideal means of self assessment. The style and structure of these tests is similar to that proposed for the WACE examination. They include sections on short response, problem solving and comprehension. The marks allocated for each of these sections also reflect the weightings proposed by the SCSA for the examinations.

Physics is a most interesting and an enjoyable science to study. The practical work, in particular, holds a fascination for students. I hope that this study guide will help students to better understand the concepts they will encounter and to achieve greater success in the subject.
