Please read the overview page for a description of the structure of Fathoming Physics classes.
Year 12 2020
New classes for students completing HSC physics in 2020 will begin in the October holidays with a two day intensive to cover the first HSC module (Advanced Mechanics).
This intensive will run from 9am-4pm (with a 1 hour lunch break and two short breaks) on Tuesday 8th Oct and on Thursday 10th Oct. A repeat of these classes will run on Wednesday 9th and Friday 11th. The cost will be $480 (the equivalent of six 2 hour lessons at $80 each) with a $80 discount for new students (the equivalent of having the first lesson free).
Year 12 classes will run on Saturday mornings (10:45-12:45pm), Friday afternoons (3:30-5:30pm) and Friday evenings (5:40-7:40pm).
Please note that the lessons have been designed to meet the needs of students who are concurrently studying Extension 2 and/or Extension 1 mathematics at school.

October holidays 2019
Module 5 “Advanced Mechanics”
Module 5 covers projectile motion, circular motion as well as Kepler’s laws of planetary motion, Newton’s law of Universal Gravitation and conservation of mechanical energy for objects moving under the force of gravity.
Term 4 2019
Module 6 “Electromagnetism”
Module 6 covers the motion of charges in electric and magnetic fields, the motor effect, electromagnetic induction and applications of the motor effect.
Term 1 2020
Module 7 “The nature of Light”
Module 7 covers electromagnetic radiation, the wave and quantum models of light, and special relativity.
Term 2 2020
Module 8 “From the Universe to the atom”
Module 8 covers the big bang and stellar evolution, the structure of the atom, nuclear physics and the standard model.
We will also spend a significant amount of class time revising for trial exams.
Term 3 2020
Revision for trials and the HSC
We will continue preparation for trials.
After student complete their trials we will begin our revision for the HSC.
