Fully updated for the 2023 Units 1&2 Physics Study Design

VCE Physics


Make the change with confidence

There are some changes coming to Units 1&2 VCE Physics for 2023. We’ve analysed and fully reworked our print and digital resources to address all these changes - to take as much stress and work out of teaching to the new study design for you.

Tim, Year 12 Physics teacher
Chairo Christian School, Pakenham Campus

The students and I have found the textbook to be very accessible. I like the way it’s split up into manageable chunks to teach and learn. I think it’s the best textbook I have worked with by far. The students love it, and some are using the Bio and Chem books and say the same thing.

Stuart, Year 12 Physics teacher
Echuca College

Short, concise text. I like that students can submit their answers... and there are good solutions. Good summary at the start of each section. Concise nature and each section related to study design dot points. Very impressed so far.

John, Year 12 Physics teacher
Donvale Christian College

So rare to get something so well debugged. Never seen students so un-cynical about a text. Thank you, you’ve done a really good job.

Lauren, Year 12 Physics teacher
Rochester Secondary College

Really like the concise presentation of material, the graduated questions, and the retrieval practice… Formative quizzes are great.

Take the drag out of exam prep

Progress questions, exam-style questions and key science skills for every topic, giving students valuable SAC and exam practice. The chapter review for every textbook chapter summarises the key content. All questions have a spiciness rating to meet students at their level of understanding and confidence.

Student support amplified

Online video theory aligned to every lesson explains, reiterates and reinforces key concepts, and provides the support and flexibility needed for VCE. Students can watch pre or post-class, or review as part of their exam prep, and use the video solutions, exemplar answers, and checklists to self-assess and maximise their marks.

Supporting you with the new study design

More and diverse activities

The new study design gives more weight to inquiry-based learning. To help you meet this change, we’ve increased the visibility of Key Skills through assessment task activities (practicals, simulations, analysis, reports). We’ve added more of these activities and coded these against the study design - all online, editable and downloadable.

Direct links to the study design dot points

Study design dot points are highlighted at the start of each lesson, and inquiry-based guided questions throughout the theory support you and your student see what needs to be taught and learnt.

Highlighting misconceptions and examiners' useful tips

Common misconceptions and useful tips scaffold students and stop them from falling into the same traps as previous students.

New content for the new study design

Across Units 1&2 there is brand new content including rainbows, the viability of nuclear energy, how radiation impacts the human body, and more. All of this new content is covered, saving you from starting from scratch.
