Adams College Transition Work


This transition work is intended to prepare you for A level study. We would like you to work through the tasks listed over the summer holidays.
You must bring your completed work with you on Wednesday 5th September, ready to demonstrate your understanding of the transition tasks in lessons. Teachers will test your knowledge and understanding of this work in class tests, the week beginning 17th September.

We will take you through some of the topics you can expect to study, and, to keep you on your toes, a quick quiz towards the end.

Firstly, let’s start with a taste of what is to come:

Physics is an amazing subject which, if you are interested in the world around you, asks and hopes to answer your questions.
Physics is a subject which studies just about everything. It wants to know how things work, and sometimes why they do. It wants to understand nature and use this understanding to enhance our knowledge of it. Physics is not limited by scale; Physics will journey from the smallest particles known to the entire universe itself, all the time considering the Forces and Energy which underpin the interactions that we see.

It is not a journey for the faint hearted, but it is a challenging and rewarding one.

Have a read of these here. They should tell you about our course.
