Physics Unit 1 AOS 3 What is matter and how is it formed?

This revision course incorporates interactive activities including simulations, videos and apps. There is a pre-test at the start and a post-test at the end so students can get feedback on the topics that need more work. There is also a range of statistics for teachers to track how their class is going.

This revision closely follows the study design with each dot point being a learning intention of the page. Questions at the end of the page check the learning intention has been meet and needs to be answered correctly before the next page can be accessed.

In this course students look at the question "What is matter and how is it formed?" in three main chapters.

  • Origins of atoms
  • Particles in the nucleus
  • Energy from the atom

Students explore the nature of matter, and consider the origins of atoms, time and space. They examine the currently accepted theory of what constitutes the nucleus, the forces within the nucleus and how energy is derived from the nucleus.
