TRUMP astrophysics project, part 6, teachers' guide: galaxies, cosmology and relativity
The Teaching Resources Unit for Modern Physics (TRUMP) is a collaboration between school teachers and academic experts whose aim is to support the teaching of modern physics in post-16 courses.
The Astrophysics package was published in 1997. It was written primarily to support modules currently available in the A level physics syllabuses at that time. Parts of package were also relevant to astronomical topics within International Baccalaureate and GCSE courses as well as to adult and continuing education.
The development work was supported by Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC), the Nuffield Foundation, the Institute of Physics and the University of York.
