Dear Grade 12 learner
To take Physical Sciences is challenging and hard work. The rewards are excitement, new discoveries and creative thoughts.
The knowledge you have gained each year has been building blocks in a greater picture. If there are any blocks missing, the picture does not make sense. Therefore, we must be aware of the fact that all the blocks have to be taken with us from one year to the following. It is a good idea to always have your Grade 10 and 11 Workbooks close by for reference.
You need the following skills:
There is a lot of logic in science, because it deals with everyday happenings, like cars that crash, rugby balls being kicked and so much more.
Be sure you know how to use your calculator.
Know your formula page.
Know what each symbol stands for and in which unit each amount is measured.
A lot of information will come to you in the form of words.
Learn to read with insight and use a highlighter to emphasize the facts you will need, or draw circles around it.
There is nothing that helps you think as logically as pictures.
Practise, practise, practise.
It still is the best method of learning something.
It means that you always have to do your homework on your own.
Work through old exam papers and our Exercise book; it provides valuable experience.
The short explanations, examples, summaries, mind maps and exercises will help you gain the necessary knowledge to master Physical Sciences. Use the video references to understand some of the terms better. However, remember to use Google as you search engine.
We hope that this will be a successful year, full of excitement and fun.
