The first part of this course is likely to carry on from our study of electromagnetism. But once we've covered it we will study towards an internal exam covering various content commonly grouped as “Modern Physics”. This is always a very exciting moment as we will look at the foundational discoveries of quantum mechanics and special relativity. On several occasions these topics will be tied to astronomical examples. Student’s learning will be assessed by an in-class test. There may be an opportunity towards the end of the term to go to Tekapo for an Astronomy camp.
