Course Description

IGCSE Physics This IGCSE distance learning course from  is designed to help meet the needs of those who want an introduction to this challenging subject either with a view to further study at A Level or simply to supplement a portfolio of IGCSE/GCSE subjects.

The IGCSE in Physics aims to impart a systematic body of scientific knowledge and skills as well as foster an appreciation of the practical nature of physics. Experimental and investigative skills based on safe, correct safe laboratory techniques will be developed. Students will also gain an appreciation of scientific methods and learn to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them.  This IGCSE distance learning course from  is designed to help meet the needs of those who want an introduction to this challenging subject either with a view to further study at A Level or simply to supplement a portfolio of IGCSE/GCSE subjects.

Experimental and investigative skills based on safe, correct safe laboratory techniques will be developed. Students will also gain an appreciation of scientific methods and learn to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them.

Key subject aims:
- To impart a systematic body of scientific knowledge and the skills needed to apply this in new and changing situations in many domestic, industrial and environmental contexts
- To foster an appreciation of the practical nature of physics, and develop experimental and investigative skills based on correct and safe laboratory techniques
- To develop an appreciation of the importance of accurate experimental work and reporting to scientific method
- To enable students to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them
- To enable students to evaluate, in terms of their scientific knowledge and understanding, the benefits and drawbacks (including social, environmental and economic) of scientific and technological developments
- To enable students to select, organise and present information clearly and logically, using appropriate scientific terms and conventions
