From the Institute of Physics, these resources are split into topics, each of which is subdivided into a number of episodes. An episode represents a coherent section of teaching. Each learning episode includes activities such as discussions, demonstrations student investigations and calculations. These can typically be completed in one or two lessons.

The topics covered are:
* Astronomy
* Astrophysics
* Cosmology
* Observations and information from spectra
* Red shift and the Doppler effect
* The expanding universe and Hubble's law

Produced by the Institute of Physics, in this learning episode, students look at the expanding universe by examining galaxies, Hubble's observations and cosmological red shift. A simple activity allows students to model Hubble's law.

Through discussion and activities, students look at:
* observing a...

Episode 705: Cosmology
