Space was the best topic! xD
I hate Ideas to Implementation.
Worst.
Topic.
Ever.
Quanta to Quarks comes in prreeeettyy close behind.

Maybe i just haven't studied it that much yet, so i don't exactly understand it...thus i hate it. xD

Motors nd generators is a pain....

motors was the best i reckon, then ideas, then quarks then space (but i never specifically hated a topic, just i liked some more than the others)

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.

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.

I would call the current HSC physics syllabus Year 10 Science, and the current School Certificate science primary school science. I don’t understand the rationale behind the dumb-down of physics post 1999. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

M&G > Space > FITI.
Fucking hate FITI and so far, hate Q2Q more.
That said, it's probably the least physics related :p

They're all okay, although Motors and Generators isn't that interesting to me :/

what??, seems like some mass hatred of motors/generators. what are you people doing physics for then, electricity, circuits and motors and shit like is the best, best experiments ever playing round with that stuff

Mark Ishak is a pain...
LOLz. im a stalker of his..
from best to worst
1. Ideas to implement(explains a lot of things in life)
2. quanta(interesting)
3. motors and generators(too easy)
4. space(so dry)
