Physics at intermediate level provides students with a contemporary and coherent understanding of energy, matter, and their interrelationship. It focuses on investigating natural phenomena and then applying patterns, models, problem solving techniques, principles, theories and laws to explain the physical behaviour of the universe. It uses an understanding of simple system to make predictions about a range of objects from subatomic particles to the entire universe and aims to reveal the simplicity underlying complexity.

The study of physics relies on the understanding and application of a small number of basic laws and principles that govern the microscopic and macroscopic worlds. The study of physics provides students with an understanding of systems that is the basic of the development of technological applications.

Physics at intermediate level draws and builds on the knowledge and understanding, skills, values and attitudes developed in high school. It further develops students’ understanding of science as a continually developing body of knowledge, the inter disciplinary nature of science, the role of science in deciding between competing theories, the provisional nature of scientific explanations and the complex interrelationship between evidence, ideas and impact of science on society.

The study of physics facilitates learning about the natural environment and man made environment, exploring phenomenon and patterns of events, acquiring scientific skills and relating science to everyday life.

It is expected that students studying physics will apply investigations and problem solving skills, effectively communicate the theoretical concepts, and appreciate the contribution that the study of physics makes to our understanding of the world.
