Developed by highly-experienced, expert author teams, Pearson Physics 12 - Western Australia is written in alignment with the Western Australian Physics Syllabus. Each Student Book comes with Reader+, the next generation eBook.

  • Chapter opening page links the syllabus to the chapter content. Science Understanding and Science as a Human Endeavour addressed in the chapter is clearly listed.
  • Physics in Action boxes place physics in an applied situation or relevant context and encourage students to think about the applications, consequences and issues raised by physics in the real world.
  • Worked Examples scaffold problems and guide students through solving them. Each worked example is followed by a Try Yourself. This allows students to immediately test their understanding.
  • Highlight boxes focus students’ attention on important information such as key definitions, formulae and summary points
  • Each section includes a summary to assist students consolidate key points and concepts. Each section finishes with questions to test students’ understanding and ability to recall the section’s key concepts.
  • Each chapter finishes with a set of higher order questions to test students’ ability to apply the knowledge gained from the chapter.
  • Each unit finishes with a comprehensive set of exam-style questions that assist students draw together their knowledge and understanding and apply it to this style of questions.
