PHYSICS SYLLABUS

INTRODUCTION

The Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) Physics syllabus has for a long time remained in a format which is difficult to translate into pedagogical sequence by teachers. The result of this was that teachers most often adopted the sequence in text books to teach the subject without paying attention to levels of difficulties of the topics and competences.

This syllabus has simply sequenced the content of the present Physics syllabus in a systematic pedagogical hierarchy to cater for each of the four years of UCE study. The syllabus further amplified the scope of each topic and sub-topic at each level to help teachers plan the depth of treatment of the subject content.

The specific objectives against each sub-topic are to assist teachers in planning the strategies of teaching the sub-topics Teachers should however be encouraged to go beyond and specify more refined objectives and teaching /learning strategies for some aspects of the sub-topics.
