On this part of the website I will be adding good websites for you to check out. They ought to cover everything that will be of interest to do with Scottish Physics teaching and learning. Beware, I might slip a few Scottish Canal websites in, just for interest. Just note that the picture of Patricia in the header is the very same Mostly Harmless before her transformation. Hopefully next season we can take another photo in her new livery.
Here is a great introduction video to Physics
https://www.reddit.com/r/PhysicsTeaching/ Mr Hood has done it again and collected data on loads of useful sites. He’s always ahead of the game. New sites seem to be appearing monthly, so keep checking them out.
http://mrmackenzie.co.uk/ Here is a great site for National Courses, and includes easy access to all SQA Physics past papers. It is a well laid out site, with a great range of videos and notes.
https://vimeo.com/fizzics/videos This is the link to the videos produced by Mr Mackenzie above.
https://www.iop.org/education/index.html The link to the Institute of Physics website, starting at the Education section. Remember at 16 you can sign up to be a member for free
http://www.iop.org/tmparchive/others/iop/insidestory_flash1.html Perform you own colonoscopy, perform a series of PET scans, investigate brain activity with a series of MRI scans and use radiotherapy to destroy cancer tumours.
http://www.supa.ac.uk/ Scottish Universities Physics Alliance. Quite an advanced site, but with plenty of news.
http://www.physicsclassroom.com/ An award winning site
http://www.cyberphysics.co.uk/index.html An award winning site, watch as it is English based.
https://scotland.guzled.com/ This is the site to go for the Teacher resources for all Scottish Courses. This website is a closed group and only suitable for Scottish Teachers. Students should not be accessing this site.
