Foundations of Physics

The aim of this paper is to develop students' understanding of Physics by exploring some of the principles that underlie the physical realm. We begin by looking at mechanics, the study of motion. We then study electricity and magnetism and the relationship between these two fields, the characteristics of waves and atomic/nuclear physics. Students' learning will be supported by a range of experiments and demonstrations.
