INDEX

Preface

This Study Guide is intended to be used by students in Year 9 and 10 preparing them for upper school Physics courses. It covers basic concepts in Physics and mathematical skills and calculations needed by Physics students.

The book is designed so that it can be used either in a whole class learning environment, by small groups or individual students working by themselves. Many students enter upper school studies in Physics without having the necessary background knowledge or not knowing anything about the topics covered in upper school Physics courses. If properly used by students, this book provides the background knowledge and a taste of the topics covered in upper school Physics courses. In this study guide, the Physics concepts are clearly explained, well-illustrated and have worked examples to assist student learning. At the end of each sub-section, there are checkpoint questions for which detailed answers are provided, giving immediate feedback to students to assist with their learning. Many questions are ‘explain this type’ questions that we suggest students need to practise if they are to be successful in upper school Physics studies.

There are also Review Questions at the end of each chapter and two Trial Tests for students to use to monitor their progress. Detailed answers are also provided to these questions.
