Revised Nuffield physics: pupils' text - Year 5
The Revised Nuffield Physics books for students were not conventional textbooks. In line with the aim of teaching for understanding, the books contained instructions for experiments and a large number of questions. The text for Year 5 did not include answers to questions but it did include more of the language of physics and longer explanations.
An exceptional feature of this text was three chapters for students to read and study about the apparent and real motions of the stars and planets. This includes an outline of the changing explanations through time and culminates in the grand theory based on Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation.
