Stage 3 Physics: Particles, Waves and Quanta Student Workbook Two Outcomes 12 to 16 Name: TEACHER’S GUIDE The outcomes in this workbook should take about 10 hours of class time. The main points are briefly covered in this workbook but students will need to do their own research using the Internet to expand these points. Description: The unit content organisers are particles, waves and quanta and motion and forces in electric and magnetic fields . Study of mechanical and electromagnetic waves allows students to extend their understanding of the nature and behaviour of waves. They analyse spectra and explain a range of physical phenomena such as fluorescence and X-ray emission. They also learn about some topics of modern physics such as relativity and cosmology. Contexts : Within the unit content organisers of particles, waves and quanta and motion and forces in electric and magnetic fields , teachers must present the unit content through one or more contexts, such as the following (this list is not exhaustive): Student unit learning contexts for particles, waves and quanta may include: medical imaging and therapies colours of fireworks sunlight and starlight sonar and echo-location optical fibres musical instruments communication systems security/remote sensing systems. Working in physics Students research and report on a question relating to a real world problem. They develop problem-solving strategies that involve linking a number of concepts and principles. They consider the level of absolute and percentage uncertainty in experimental measurements and conclusions. This includes the use of error bars when displaying data and conclusions graphically. Plan For Unit. This workbook will give you an outline of the content to be covered and the related text pages. It is not intended to be used alone but in conjunction with your text and teacher. It is expected that you will follow the workbook and read the related text, experiments and investigations before the lesson. It will be assumed that you have read the text and have some introductory knowledge of the work to be covered each lesson; failure to do so may affect your progress in class. Your teacher will then teach you the concepts and show you how to do the examples in the workbook thus ensuring you have exemplars when completing additional questions from the workbook and texts. Your teacher also has all the worked answers to the additional questions in this workbook and you must check your answers when you complete the questions. In addition to the work set for homework, it is essential that you set up a study plan and regularly review the work covered. This plan should be set up from day one. Regular reviewing not only makes study easy, it ensures good grades.
