Beginning Physics Workbook for NCEA Level 2
This book is designed to support the classroom, laboratory work, homework and revision needed for the year. Features include: learning objectives to focus student study; easy-to-read notes covering all the key content areas of Level 2 Physics; write-on space so students can add their own notes and definitions as required (ideal for ESOL students); a wide variety of question types to allow practice of a range of skills; a practical section containing all the essential experiments that students need to do, that builds to form an ideal record for revision at the end of the year.
