The Liverpool Robotic Telescope

Produced in 2015, these materials are themed around the work of the Liverpool Robotic Telescope and the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO). Through the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO) web site, registered schools can request specific observations to be made using the remotely-controlled Liverpool...

Using Probability Computer Games S3

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students confront and overcome common misconceptions about probability, count equally likely outcomes using diagrams, discuss relationships between theoretical probabilities, observed outcomes and sample sizes and calculate probabilities of dependent and independent...

Nervous System: Responding to Stimuli *suitable for home teaching*

This unit of learning materials from the National Learning Network Materials' Biology collection introduces the structure and function of the human nervous system. Animations and illustrations show the structure of nerve cells, transmission of signals at a synapse, a reflex arc, sense organs and effectors. ...

Genes and Inheritance *suitable for home teaching*

In these resources from the ABPI students are introduced to genes and chromosomes, the role of genes in determining protein structure, mitosis, cloning technology, meiosis, inheritance, mutation, cystic fibrosis and possibilities for gene therapy.

Syphilis *suitable for home teaching*

From the Wellcome Trust, this animation shows how syphilis, a sexually transmitted bacterial disease (STD), can infect a person's lymph nodes. If this initial infection is not treated, the bacteria can spread to cause damage to the heart, aorta, brain, eyes and bones. In some cases, untreated syphilis can result in...

ChemWars *suitable for home teaching*

Let battle commence! An interactive activity from the Association for Science Education (ASE), where students use video clips of displacement reactions together with animations to investigate the Reactivity Series for metals.

Interactive Periodic Table

Produced by ABPI this interactive game allows students to explore trends in the properties and behaviour of different elements, and develop their understanding of the patterns of the Periodic Table.

Evidence for Particles

This unit of learning material from the National Learning Network Materials' Chemistry collection investigates the particle nature of matter. Illustrations and animations explain how all matter is made up of particles and illustrates this with examples of diffusion and dilution. The files to install this...

Standard Form Calculator

This animation from Subtangent provides the facility for students to convert very large or very small numbers to and from standard form notation. Examples of converting ordinary numbers into standard form notation are given and include negative index terms.

Interpreting Distance-Time Graphs with a Computer A5

In this DfE Standards Unit resource, students interpret linear and non-linear distance-time graphs using the computer programme Traffic. This program provides a simple yet powerful way of helping learners to visualise distance–time graphs from first principles. The program generates situations involving...
