Please read the overview page for a description of the structure of Fathoming Physics classes.
Year 12 2019
In Dec 2018, and in 2019 my year 12 class is running on Saturday evenings, 4-6pm.
Please note that there is now only one year 12 class in 2019 – I just can’t fit more in now that I am also working at James Ruse.
The venue for lessons will move from Epping to Carlingford at the beginning of 2019. Please contact me for more details.
Fathoming Physics year 12 course details for 2019
Term 4 2018
Module 5 “Advanced Mechanics” + part of Module 6 “Electromagnetism”
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.
We will also cover the first part of module 6, on the motion of charges in electric and magnetic fields.
Term 1 2019
Module 6 “Electromagnetism” and part of Module 7 “The nature of Light”
The second part of Module 6 covers the motor effect, electromagnetic induction and applications of the motor effect.
We will also cover part of the next module, on the nature of light, as well as preparing students for their mid-year exams.
Term 2 2019
Module 7 “The nature of light” and Module 8 “From the Universe to the atom”
We will complete the second part of the module on the nature of light, covering the wave and quantum models of light, and special relativity.
We will also cover module 8, on 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 2019
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.
