This course covers most of the atomic and particle content of A-Level and IB physics, but excludes any quantum-related topics. Students will learn how everything we feel and see around us behaves on the smallest possible scale and about the fundamental forces and particles that govern the laws of our universe. The standard model, which is one of the most important scientific discoveries and at the heart of particle physics, will be covered in some depth and students will be able to classify all elementary particles. The course starts by constructing an atom and then slowly dives into the structure of matter and nuclear reactions. Students will learn about the evolution of the atom and how far we have come in understanding matter on a very small scale. Some topics, such as nuclear decay, expect some knowledge of exponential functions, which will be covered briefly, so that students without a strong mathematical background are not at a disadvantage.
