Practical Physics

Experiments sharpen students' powers of observation, stimulate questions, and help develop new understanding and vocabulary.

Practical Physics will help all teachers of physics to share their skills and experience of making experiments work in the classroom. The website includes notes on apparatus, procedure, and teaching notes, together with general guidance on teaching approaches.
