The new Queensland Physics syllabus affects all aspects of teaching and learning - new teaching content, new course structure and a new approach to assessment. As EPAA Secondary Publisher of the Year 2017, 2018 and 2019, Oxford University Press is committed to helping teachers and students in Queensland reach their full potential. New Century Physics for Queensland 3E Student workbooks are standalone resources designed to help students succeed in their internal and external assessments. With an engaging design, full-colour photos and relevant diagrams throughout, the Student workbooks include:a Toolkit chapter focused on internal assessments and cognitive verbsData drill activities that help students develop the key skills in analysis and interpretation required for the Data testExperiment explorer activities that support the modification of a practical as required in the Student experimentResearch review activities that allow students to practise how to evaluate a claim and identify credible sources for the Research investigationExam excellence activities that allow students to practice multiple choice and short answer questions in preparation for the external examinationhandy study tips throughout the chapterspractice internal assessments for the Data test, Student experiment and Research investigationwrite-in worksheets for all mandatory and suggested practicalsappendices such as the periodic table and formulasanswers to all activities and practice assessments.
