What you learn

The study of Physics in Stage 6 aims to enable students to develop an appreciation and understanding of the application of the principles of physics, and of the theories, laws, models, systems and structures of physics. It also enables students to apply Working Scientifically skills processes to examine physics models and practices and their applications.

There are 53 lessons in the HSC Study Lab Year 12 Physics course, which corresponds to the 120 indicative hours of study required by the syllabus.

  • HSC Study Lab 53 Lessons
    Video lessons by expert teachers that cover the NSW Year 12 Physics Syllabus comprehensively. The videos fully explain complex physics questions through animations, first-hand investigations (filmed at Macquarie University science labs), and tutorials.
  • HSC Study Lab Hundreds of practice questions
    53 lesson quizzes that include a variety of question types. This course also includes 16 content level and 4 module level tests, as well as an end of course practice exam.
  • HSC Study Lab 20 Games and simulators
    The games and simulators help you explore and understand key learning outcomes and put theory into practice. The course also includes additional resources such as an interactive oscilloscope.
  • HSC Study Lab Working Scientifically
    Our Working Scientifically activities will look like mini projects at the end of each module (there are four in total in this course). The Working Scientifically activities include virtual interactive experiments, processing of data and/or report writing, depending on the specific requirements of the Working Scientifically outcomes for that module. Each activity will produce a report based on the student’s input, that can be downloaded and submitted to their teacher.
  • HSC Study Lab Depth Studies
    The course will also feature a student-led Depth Study, which will be a guided template taking them through the steps of conducting an independent scientific study. Again, the Depth Studies section features a downloadable report that the student can use for their reference or submit to their teacher.
