There are opportunities for demonstrations that illustrate the basic ideas of particle acceleration and detection.
As regards post-16 examinations, the formal requirements laid down are modest, or non-existent, so that the level of treatment...
This topic does not lend itself to much practical work; there are a few analogue demonstrations which can be valuable.
Starting from the pattern of stability, this section looks at forces in the nucleus and the idea of binding energy.
The first topic makes use of activities based on card sorting and arranging. The baryon, meson and lepton cards suggested here...
Students may think that they have no direct experience of quantum physics and its consequences. Nothing could be further from...
Explore the fact that nucleons are not fundamental particles but contain different parts.
Over the age of 16, students can work with certain radioactive sources, provided they are carefully supervised. One of your...
Here you have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the nuclear model of the atom, making use of ideas about...
As with quantum theory, this is a section of the course that candidates will find completely new.
This topic could extend a study of diffraction of waves, or be part of a study of material structures, or of atomic physics.
This episode requires students to apply their knowledge of charged particles and fields.
Recognising and celebrating outstanding contributions to the field of physics education.
