Ethiopian Grade 9 Physics Textbook [PDF] For Students

Ethiopian Grade 9 Physics Textbook [PDF] For Students. It is provided by the MoE Ethiopia for free. This textbook is based on the new Curriculum Framework for Ethiopian Education. Students, parents, and teachers can download the same from the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia Ministry of Education official website.

The Physics content of Grades 9 and 10 is a continuation of topics met in Grades 7 and 8 with deepening and broadening further and adding new topics. At this level, the emphasis is upon a deeper understanding of underlying concepts involving measurement, equations, and simple calculations.

Grades 9 and 10 are categorized as the first cycle of secondary education. This is due to the fact that the students will be streamed after finishing Grade 10, which is a terminal point. This fact is given due consideration in preparing this curriculum guide. Every effort has been made to make the citizens which complete the first cycle of the secondary education knowledgeable of the most general basic laws of physics which they will apply in their daily lives.
