Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2019 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2019 will be available from the 1st October 2018.
1. Describe wave and oscillatory phenomena and the kinetic theory of gases using appropriate mathematical notation, including the ability to demonstrate an understanding of the assumptions and limitations of the underlying theoretical framework. (Assessed by ATs 1, 2, 3 and 4)
2. Formulate physical problems in the areas of waves and oscillations and the kinetic theory of gases and apply mathematical techniques to solve them. (Assessed by ATs 1, 2, 3 and 4)
3. Critically review the strengths and weaknesses of the kinetic theory of gases and the application of wave representation in classical and quantum systems. (Assessed by ATs 1, 2, 3 and 4)
4. Analyse and interpret experimental results to identify evidence for and against physics hypotheses. (Assessed by AT 2)
5. Report scientific information to colleagues and lay audiences using oral, written, numerical and graphic communication. (Assessed by ATs 1, 2, 3 and 4)
6. Critically reflect upon the experience of learning Chemistry/Physics and evaluate how it relates to the experience of learning and teaching in schools. (Assessed by AT 5)*
