A Practical Approach to Teaching A-Level Mechanics

Online

Overview

This course aims to provide teaching ideas and resources to help promote the study of mechanics in a practical and meaningful way. The activities undertaken will promote discussion and assist in developing students’ problem-solving skills and hence their understanding of fundamental mechanical techniques. All activities are designed for immediate use in the classroom and using only simple, readily available equipment.

Aims

  • • Increase teachers' awareness of interesting and engaging methods for deepening students' conceptual understanding of mechanics.
  • • Promote collaboration with other teachers of A-Level mechanics.
