The old syllabus would be better in terms of preparation for uni (it practically covers first year uni physics), physics before 2000 had like mechanics ( all the new syllabus has is projectile motion, and its done the shit way, the 3 unit maths way is better and the "uniway" ), sound, waves, rotational motion and was much more math based. The current syllabus is about 20% math, 80% theory before 2000 it was about 5% theory and 95% math (which you have to get used too as this is how its tested in uni), i would have been a bit more grateful if the board of studies kept with the old syllabus, then the seemingly massive transition between hsc physics and uni physics wouldnt be so large.Bring back the old syllabus! It was tops! Wave motion equations - awesome.
History of Gravitation - FANTASTIC!
The new syllabus (post 1999) just lacks so much oomph, chutzpah, something.
They're all okay, although Motors and Generators isn't that interesting to me :/
