This course is aimed at helping Stage 6 physics teachers unpack the new Physics Stage 6 Syllabus. On this course we will be examining the course structure requirements, assessment and reporting requirements, practical requirements, depth studies, similar content with the outgoing syllabus, new content, unfamiliar content, and Year 11 content important for Year 12. In particular, we will unpack the physics behind the new content of Thermodynamics, Waves and Electric Circuits.
This course is best done in conjunction with Experiments for the New Physics Stage 6 Syllabus.
