Physics summer work

Overview

The Physics course covers a wide range of topics, some of which you will be familiar with from your GCSE Physics course. You will also need to apply the skills you have developed from your GCSE Physics and Maths courses including; algebraic manipulation, number handling, graph drawing, analysing and evaluating data.

The work

The work we are setting over the summer is designed to give you an idea of the level of skill required for the first year of the course and allow you to practise using these skills before you start in September.

(4-5 hours) should not exceed 5 hours
There are three sections to this work:

Task 1: Transition from GCSE to A Level worksheet
Task 2: Collecting and recording data
Take 3: Mathematical practice
