  1. WELCOME TO PHYSICS BUT WHAT IS PHYSICS?

  2. WITHOUT PHYSICS, • THERE WOULD BE : • NO CHEMISTRY • NO BIOLOGY • NO GEOLOGY IT IS THE FUNDAMENTAL SCIENCE

  3. What are we made of?

  4. STARDUST SUPERNOVA

  5. UP DOWN UP OURSELVES GALAXIES MATERIALS PHYSICS THE STUDY OF EVERYTHING ATOMS PROTON QUARKS EARTH THE BIG BANG STARS LIGHT

  6. THE COSMIC SNAKE UNIVERSE GALAXIES LEPTONS & QUARKS The Cosmic Snake, represents all the physical things which surround us, from the largest at its head, to the smallest particles of matter at its tail. To understand the whole universe we have to know what the smallest particles of matter are like. STARS In Norse mythology, humans lived in Middle Earth - set in the midst of a great sea. In the depths of this sea lay a Snake. The body of the Snake completely surrounded Middle Earth.. ATOMS EARTH MATERIALS OURSELVES LIGHT

  7. The UNIVERSE is 14 000 000 000 years old!

  8. 100 000 light years THE MILKY WAY 100 000 000 000 stars

  9. Each QUARK in this proton is a million million millionth of a metre in diameter!

  10. WHY DID THE TACOMA NARROWS BRIDGE COLLAPSE?

  11. ESTIMATION OF MAGNITUDE EXERCISE • You will be given 16 picture cards and 10 measurement cards. • Match the objects to the measurements – you will need to write your own estimates for six of the objects • Now try to match the measurements to standard form cards. • Arrange the cards in order of size – smallest first

  12. AS MODULES : TEACHING ORDER UNIT 2 : MECHANICS, MATERIALS & WAVES UNIT 1 : PARTICLES, QUANTUM PHENOMENA AND ELECTRICITY UNIT 3 : EXPERIMENTAL SKILLS (ISA)

  13. A2 MODULES : TEACHING ORDER UNIT 4 : FIELDS & FURTHER MECHANICS UNIT 5 : NUCLEAR AND THERMAL PHYSICS PLUS ASTROPHYSICS UNIT 6 : Experimental Skills (ISA)

  14. ASSESSED PRACTICAL WORK WORTH 20% OF THE FINAL MARK ISA 2X Practical assignments– practical activity in the lab followed by an externally marked written test (1hr 15 mins)

  15. To prepare for the first module in September – use the AS PhysicsPreparation handout. The Antonine Education website helps you to practice the essential skills needed at AS level. http://www.antonine-education.co.uk/
