Achieve! Energy, Electricity and Movement explores Physics concepts for the junior to middle secondary levels. However, the information is presented at a reading level of six to nine years, in a mature-look format.
The worksheets are grouped into topics to facilitate in-depth study of a subject, from a variety of approaches. Students will complete practical investigations and practice skills such as interpreting and labelling diagrams, recording results, completing tables, comparing data and drawing conclusions.
