Physics

Aims & Objectives

The broad aims of the Physics curriculum are to enable students to:

  • develop an interest in the physical world and maintain a sense of wonder and curiosity about it;
  • construct and apply knowledge of physics, and appreciate the relationship between
  • physical science and other disciplines;
  • appreciate and understand the nature of science in physics-related contexts;
  • develop skills for making scientific inquiries;
  • develop the ability to think scientifically, critically and creatively, and to solve problems individually or collaboratively in physics-related contexts;
  • understand the language of science and communicate ideas and views on physics-related issues;
  • make informed decisions and judgments on physics-related issues; and be aware of the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of physics, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship.
