Physics is the study of motion, electricity and space. It provides students with a modern understanding of energy, matter, and their interrelationships. It focuses on investigating natural phenomena and then applying patterns, models (including mathematical ones), principles, theories and laws to explain the physical behaviour of the universe. It uses an understanding of simple to make predictions about a range of objects from sub-atomic particles to the entire universe and aims to explain the world in a simple way.
Additionally, this course relies on the understanding and application of a small number of basic laws and principles that govern the microscopic and macroscopic worlds. It provides students with an understanding of systems that is the basis of the development of technological applications. The interplay between concepts and technological and societal impacts is embodied in the history and philosophy of science.
