Course Description

Course provided by NetNZ

This course provides Achievement Standards, with a maximum of 20 credits at Level 2; the course content is listed below, but is flexible and can be reduced or extended  to student needs


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

For 2019 I am using L2 Physics Workbook (Chris Rutter ) We also use the Schoology LMS so a laptop is essential.
Access to “Beginning Physics Workbook 2E” (Anna Cox) is useful & the L2 SciPAD workbooks have useful sources of extra practice problems
We try to meet physically in Term 1 to do practical work. For Otago-Southland students we travel to Roxburgh Area School (Possibility this may also be another School depending on which is most central for the students involved)
