This unit focuses on the ideas that underpin much of the technology found in areas such as communications, engineering, commerce and industry. Motion in one and two dimensions is introduced and applied to moving objects on Earth and in space. Circuit models are applied to further aspects of electricity and electronics, and the operation and use of photonic devices are introduced. The detailed studies offer examples of theoretical and practical applications of these technologies. Students continue to have regular experience in experimental investigation in the laboratory. They design and carry out an extended practical investigation. They collect accurate data, evaluate the quality of data and measurement processes, and make conclusions based on the data.  This Unit is offered in Year 12.
