INFORMATION
The syllabus for Physics at the Higher Secondary Stage has been developed with a view
that this stage of school education is crucial and challenging as it is transition from
general science to discipline-based curriculum. The recommendations of National
Curriculum Framework-2005 have been followed, keeping the disciplinary approach with
rigour and depth, appropriate to the comprehension level of learners. Due care has been
taken that the syllabus is not heavy and at the same time it is comparable to the
international standards. The syllabus provides logical sequencing of the subject matter
with proper placement of concepts with their linkages for better understanding.
It is expected that the syllabus will help to develop an interest in the learners to study
Physics as a discipline and inculcate in learners the abilities, useful concepts of Physics in
real-life situations for making learning of Physics relevant, meaningful and interesting.
The learner is expected to realize and appreciate the interface of Physics with other
disciplines.
RATIONALE
The higher secondary stage is crucial and challenging stage of school education as it a
transition from general science to discipline-based curriculum. Physics is being offered
as an elective subject at the higher secondary stage of school education. At this stage, the
students take up Physics, as a discipline, with a purpose of pursuing their future careers in
basic sciences or professional courses like medicine, engineering, technology and
studying courses in applied areas of science and technology at tertiary level. There is a
need to provide the learners with sufficient conceptual background of Physics which
would eventually make them competent to meet the challenges of academic and
professional courses after the higher secondary stage.
The present effort of reforming and updating the Physics curriculum is an exercise based
on the feedback received from the school system about existing syllabus and curricular
material, large expansion of Physics knowledge, and also the educational and curricular
concerns and issues provided in the National Curriculum Framework- 2005.
The recommendations of National Curriculum Framework-2005 have been followed,
keeping the disciplinary approach with rigour and depth, appropriate to the
comprehension level of learners. Due care has been taken that the syllabus is not heavy
and at the same time, it is comparable to the international standards. Also, it is essential
to develop linkages with other disciplines for better learning of Physics concepts and
establishing relationship with daily-life situations and life-skills.

• Emphasis on Physics-related technological/industrial aspects to cope up with
changing demand of society committed to the use of Physics, technology and
informatics.
• Providing logical sequencing of the ‘Units’ of the subject matter and proper
placement of concepts with linkages for better learning and matching the
concepts/content with comprehension level of the learners.
• Reducing the curriculum load by eliminating overlapping of concepts/ content
within the discipline of Physics or with other disciplines, reducing the descriptive
portion and providing suitable formulation/depth of treatment appropriate to the
comprehension level of learners, making room for contemporary core-topics and
emerging curricular areas in Physics.
• The syllabus is arranged in Units spread over two years duration. The Units are
so sequenced as to provide different dimensions of Physics as a discipline. The
time allocation of learning Physics content per Units in terms of instructional
periods have been mentioned for each Unit to help the Textbook Development
Team members to develop the instructional material so as the cover it within the
time frame. Each Units has been arranged with a topic, content related practical
work (one core experiment, two activities to be evaluated) and suggested
investigatory projects (one project to be evaluated). There is an imperative need
for evaluating the learners through Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation of
various concepts covered in a Unit.
With this background, the Physics curriculum at the higher secondary stage attempts to:
• Strengthen the concepts developed at the secondary stage to provide firm ground
work and foundation for further learning Physics at the tertiary level more
effectively and learning the relationship with daily-life situations;
• Develop conceptual competence in the learners and make them realize and
appreciate the interface of Physics with other disciplines;
• Expose the learners to different processes used in Physics-related industrial and
technological applications;
• Develop process-skills and experimental, observational, manipulative, decisionmaking
and investigatory skills in the learners;
• Promote problem-solving abilities and creative thinking to develop interest in the
learners in the study of Physics as a discipline;

• Understand the relationship between nature and matter on scientific basis, develop
positive scientific attitude, and appreciate the contribution of Physics towards the
improvement of quality of life and human welfare;
• Physics teaching-learning at the higher secondary stage enables the learners to
comprehend the contemporary knowledge and develop aesthetic sensibilities and
process skills. The experimental skills and process-skills developed together with
conceptual Physics knowledge prepare the learners for more meaningful learning
experiences and contribute to the significant improvement of quality of life. The
learners would also appreciate the role and impact of Physics and technology, and
their linkages with overall national development.
