About the Workbook

The Science in Focus Physics Skills and Assessment Workbook approaches the Physics NESA Stage 6 syllabi sequentially. The workbook is organised by inquiry question and have a skillsfocused worksheet approach. The workbook helps students build capacity to work scientifically, complete high-quality depth studies and succeed in formal school-based assessment and the HSC exam.
