AIMS

The Science pupil is provided with a clear idea of the place of Physical Science in civilisation, and is prepared, through the subject content and discipline, for responsible citizenship. The subject is divided into two main components, namely Physics (laws of the universe and applied Maths) and Chemistry (the study of the Periodic Table and its elements). Essentially the pupils are being taught two subjects in one. At the end of their matric year, they are expected to write two, 3 hour examinations in which they are tested on content from grades 10, 11 and 12.

SKILLS

Core Mathematics is essential as it is a requirement to study Physical Science.

Assessment involves a theoretical as well as practical component.

Pupils are given opportunities to make “discoveries”, learn measuring techniques, and practise the recording and treatment of observations, drawing conclusions, and the presentations of results. Analytical thinking plays an important role in the solving of problems. The pupils are tested using a variety of questioning levels. Namely: recall, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation.

To enjoy this subject a pupil must have an enquiring mind and a passion for problem solving. Listening in class and understanding what has been taught is essential for the application process that will follow after new content has been introduced. Application of laws and principles plays an integral role in the understanding of Physical Science.

CAREERS

Physical Science is essential for further University studies in Medicine, Pharmacy, Radiology, and Agriculture, Pure Sciences and all Engineering fields; also Architecture and most University of Technology courses.
