NQ Higher Physics
The Physics course is made up of four mandatory Units: Our Dynamic Universe, Particles and Waves, Electricity and Researching Physics. The concepts, principles and theories are often set in a relevant context, by making reference to applications of Physics and to real-world situations.
In this section you will find resources that can be downloaded and adapted, and which are suitable for both teachers and learners
Investigating fundamental particles, nuclear reactions and the wave properties of matter.
Develop the essential skills for carrying out investigative scientific research in physics, and then apply these in the context of a topical physics investigation.
Study our current understanding of the structure of the universe.
Take a deeper look at electricity and investigate an introduction to semiconductors.
