Link to Course Overview
A busy term lies ahead! First we will look at nuclear reactions and radioactivity. This learning will be assessed by an internal exam through a one day activity at the University of Canterbury playing with radioactive samples. Don’t swallow them please!
Then we will study aspects of waves which will be relevant for further study at level 3 next year. In the middle of this term we have the practice exam week, for which we will have to be ready as if it’s the real deal. This will involve revision of both mechanics and electricity.
Towards the end of the term is the due date for the self-studied internal assessment on an application of physics.
