iMatter As A Physicist

iMatter As A Physicist

Year 7

I will study the foundations for understanding the world through the specific discipline of physics. I will learn about energy, motion and forces. I will be challenged to describe processes using technical terminology accurately and precisely and I will build up a specialist vocabulary.

Year 8

I will learn about electromagnetism and space physics. My specialist vocabulary will be extended and I will be expected to use this vocabulary when describing and evaluating processes.

Year 9

I will explore how electric charge is a fundamental property of matter and learn how the difference in conductors makes it possible to design electric circuits. I will explore how the particle model is applied to predict the behaviour of solids, liquids and gases. I will ink the properties of ionising radiation with the structure of atoms, nuclear forces and stability. Triple scientists also learn about the scale and structure of the universe and its evolution.

Year 10

I will explore the concept of energy as a key tool for understanding scientific systems, evaluating the use of fossil fuels and the link with global warming. I will analyse forces when designing machines and instruments, such as fairground rides. I will learn how waves carry energy from one place to another, can carry information and can be used in modern technologies.

Year 11

I will discover how engineers use a magnet moving in a coil to produce an electric current and how this can produce movement. I will learn how this electromagnetic effect is used in a variety of devices involving control and communications.

INTENT

iMatter as a Scientist because I will develop a curious mind and my excitement for science will be fuelled. I will be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future. I will be a scientist forever.
