S1-3 Group Physics Classes

This course tackles the first unit of the National 5 physics –  ‘Waves & Radiation’. It is appropriate for S3 or S4 students and ambitious early secondary students (S1-S3)who want to achieve more in physics.

Why Study This Course?

This course is designed to support success in physics. It develops solid foundations for exams as well as a future in the world of physics, science or medicine.

Through use of exam type questions and past paper questions, students will gain insight into their current level of attainment and be confident on how to improve their exam technique.  

Key Outcomes

  • Apply the mathematical methods required to carry out calculations in the National 5 course.
  • Use equations in physics calculations
  • Describe experiments for waves and light through virtual experiments
