This book provides a complete, compact textbook for students taking New Zealand senior school Physics in Year 12. It is designed to support the learning and revision of scientific concepts, processes and skills for Year 12 of the New Zealand curriculum. There are initial units on the development of physics language and mathematical, calculation and graphing skills. The technological development of physics concepts is emphasised as is the application of physics concepts in new and familiar student learning contexts. The texts not only cover the curriculum but also NCEA requirements. Each book is divided into topics and each topic is usually divided into four 4 page units. Each unit has two pages of essential information with a special skill (linked to the curriculum) developed in detail. The information is presented in bulleted points with short, easily assimilated sentences, and all terms are clearly defined and reinforced by the range of selfassessment activities which follow. These activities of varying difficulty are designed not only to reinforce the information provided but to also test students' ability to recall content, understand concepts and interpret scientific information. Designed so that they can be used by students independently of specialist teacher input, equipment or other resources, full answers are included to allow for selfassessment. This series is particularly useful for teachers to introduce topics, for homework and for revision of learning, and is especially suitable for relief work and for supporting nonspecialist teachers. Note that the answer section is removable where teachers prefer that this information is not accessible to students. Lavishly published in full colour the Pathfinder series sets a new standard in textbooks for New Zealand students.
