Unpacking the New Physics Stage 6 Syllabus

This course is most appropriate for a region, cluster or community of schools. Please contact us if your organisation is interested in arranging or hosting.

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.
