Physics 11

[ Ministry code: PH 11 ]


Although there is no formal prerequisite for Physics 11, it is recommended that students have maintained a minimum of 70% in both Foundations of Mathematics 10 and Science 10. Students who may have not done so may want to consider upgrading their math skills before taking this course.

Physics 11 consists of 4 Modules. Each module consists of several units. At the end of each Unit there will be a Send-In Assignment for marks. Do not confuse this with the Practice assignments at the end of each Lesson.

NOTE: It is best to print this file first before starting the Unit and then after completing the lesson, complete as much of the Send-In Assignment as possible until you run into new material. Then go to the next lesson and repeat the process until the Send-In Assignment is completed. Halfway through the course, you will be required to write the midterm. You must complete the final exam in order to finish the course.
