Paper 4 Alternative to Practical 1 hour, A written paper of compulsory short answer and structured questions designed to test familiarity with laboratory. practical procedures,Candidates will answer on the question paper. Syllabus Aims and Assessment, The aims of the science curricula are the same for all students These are set out below and describe the. educational purposes of an O Level School Certificate course in Physics They are not listed in order of priority. 1 Provide through well designed studies of experimental and practical science a worthwhile educational. experience for all candidates whether or not they go on to study science beyond this level and in particular to. enable them to acquire sufficient understanding and knowledge. 1 1 to become confident citizens in a technological world able to take or develop an informed interest in matters. of scientific import, 1 2 To recognise the usefulness and limitations of scientific method and to appreciate its applicability in other. disciplines and in everyday life, 1 3 to be suitably prepared for studies beyond Cambridge O Level in pure sciences in applied sciences.
or in science dependent vocational courses,2 Develop abilities and skills that. 2 1 Are relevant to the study and practice of science. 2 2 Are useful in everyday life,2 3 Encourage efficient and safe practice. 2 4 Encourage effective communication,3 Develop attitudes relevant to science such as. 3 1 Concern for accuracy and precision,3 2 Objectivity. 3 3 Integrity,3 4 enquiries,3 5 initiatives,3 6 inventiveness.
4 Stimulate interest in and care for the local and global environment. 5 Promote an awareness that, 5 1 the study and practice of science are co operative and cumulative activities that are subject to social. economic technological ethical and cultural influences and limitations. 5 2 The applications of sciences may be both beneficial and detrimental to the individual the community. and the environment,Assessment objectives, The assessment objectives describe the knowledge skills and abilities that students are expected to demonstrate. at the end of the course They reflect those aspects of the aims that are assessed. AO1 Knowledge with understanding, Students should be able to demonstrate knowledge with understanding in relation to. 1 Scientific phenomena facts laws definitions concepts theories. 2 Scientific vocabulary terminology conventions including symbols quantities and units. 3 Scientific instruments and apparatus including techniques of operation and aspects of safety. 4 Scientific quantities and their determination, 5 Scientific and technological applications with their social economic and environmental implications. The subject content defines the factual knowledge that candidates may be required to recall and explain. Questions testing these objectives will often begin with one of the following words define state describe. explain or outline,AO2 Handling information and solving problems.
Students should be able using visual aural and written including symbolic diagrammatic graphical and. numerical information to, 1 Locate select organize and present information from a variety of sources including everyday experience. 2 Translate information from one form to another,DAWOOD PUBLIC SCHOOL Course Outline for Class X 2. 3 Manipulate numerical and other data, 4 Use information to identify patterns report trends and draw inferences. 5 Present reasoned explanations for phenomena patterns and relationships. 6 Make predictions and hypotheses,7 Solve problems. These assessment objectives cannot readily be fully specified in the syllabus content Questions testing. Skills in physics may be based on information given in the question paper that is unfamiliar to the. students or is based on everyday experience In answering such questions students are required to use principles. and concepts that are within the syllabus and to apply them in a logical manner Questions testing these objectives. will often begin with one of the following words predict suggest calculate or determine. AO3 Experimental skills and investigations,Students should be able to.
1 Follow instructions, 2 Carry out techniques use apparatus handle measuring devices and materials effectively and safely. 3 Make and record observations measurements and estimates with due regard to precision accuracy and units. 4 Interpret evaluate and report upon observations and experimental data. 5 Identify problems plan and carry out investigations including the selection of techniques apparatus measuring. devices and materials, 6 Evaluate methods and suggest possible improvements. Weighting of assessment objectives,Theory papers Papers 1 and 2. AO1 Knowledge with understanding is weighted at approximately 65 of the marks for each paper with. approximately half allocated to recall, AO2 Handling information and solving problems is weighted at approximately 35 of the marks for each. Practical assessment Papers 3 and 4, This is designed to test appropriate skills in assessment objective AO3 and will carry approximately 20 of the.
