Welcome to IGCSE Physics TMU style! In this course we will research and learn about the concepts listed in the IGCSE physics specification. The aim of this course is to learn using discovery and research. We will look at some of the longer exam questions in IGCSE physics and use our knowledge and skills to research the answer and make sure that our knowledge covers all the parts of the IGCSE specification. Please note the course will be taught through research, experimentation, demonstrations, and discussion. We will aim to make this course as interactive and engaging as possible. This course is great for people preparing for IGCSE exams or just looking to learn more about the universe and wanting to develop their higher order thinking, analysis, research, and communication skills. We will be working from the CAIE IGCSE (9-1) 2023-2025 syllabus. You can find the relevant specifications here: Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Physics 0972 (cambridgeinternational.org) This course will run over 2-years but you can sign up to it in 6 week blocks. Doing the course over 2 years will allow greater exploration and interaction. Exam skills will be emphasised and practiced in the latter part of the course. Year 1 will cover the great majority of the course while the second year will focus on reviewing and preparing for the exam. Thus, depending on their needs and desires, Thinkers can join on either year. Doing only one year, of course, implies greater independent work on the part of the Thinker but some Thinkers have chosen to do only 1 year. Please feel free to be in touch and discuss your needs with us so we can find a set up that works for your unique Thinker and family. NB Thinkers Meet Up will provide a course that covers the all the curriculum content and more. We will work to develop critical thinking and inspire and promote independent research. We can advise when we feel students are ready to succeed in an exam - in terms of content knowledge and exam-skill maturity. It is the parents's responsibility, however, to find an exam centre and register their Thinker for the exam. It is the Thinkers responsibility to put in at least 1 hour of work per week outside of the class to study and prepare for exams. Not all Thinkers opt to take exams, some simply want to learn, which is, of course, also wonderful.
We will do our utmost to ensure every booked class takes place. However, we strongly believe in the value of conversation between thinkers. Thus, we will not run a class with less than the minimum number of students. If we do not have a full group 24 hours before the class is set to start we will, sadly, cancel the session, refund all participants, and seek to run the class at a different time. Our full booking and cancellation policy can be found in our Terms and Services.
