Physics is the original science that studies
the physical world. It used to be known as
natural philosophy. Today it is mostly
concerned with the behaviour and structure
of matter.
The study of physics often leads to
mathematical relationships. These relation-
ships are useful because they describe the
nature of matter and they allow the
accurate prediction of future events.
PHYSICS IS MATHEMATICAL.


PHYSICS CAN BE ABSTRACT,
    YOU MUST THINK.


 PHYSICS DEMANDS HARD
         WORK.
SAY THE F-WORD OR ABOVE??????
(I decide what is above or below, e.g. the s-
   word is below)
              THREE CHOICES
            1. DO TEN PUSH-UPS
        2. DO TWENTY CRUNCHES
3. SING I’M A LITTLE TEAPOT (with proper
       actions) IN FRONT OF CLASS
(this could also be foisted upon you in the halls!!)
   SORRY BUT THERE IS NO
   FOOD OR DRINK IN THIS
    SCIENCE CLASSROOM.

           SPH 4U(G) IS ONLINE!!

electricity. The course is primarily intended for
university or college bound students who are
considering further studies in any science
program or related area.

Potential, Motion of Charged Particles in
Electric Fields.
        Assessment and Evaluation
Tests, quizzes, lab reports, lab skills, group
work, presentations, assignments and
research projects.
