The authors of Nuffield Advanced Physics were alert to the fact that the sixth form pattern for which the course was to be designed might vanish almost as soon as the materials were published. What was not clear at the time of writing was the form a new pattern would take.

The authors responded to this...

The Institute of Physics Schools and Colleges Lecture has been delivered by a series of acclaimed physics communicators, throughout the UK, since 1993. Topics are explained using a wide range of visual aids and the one hour lectures are accessible to students aged 14 years old and above. They are designed to tie in...

The Nuffield Advanced Chemistry course was first published in 1970 and was revised, so this was the third edition of a successful course. In this third edition there was just one students' book for the whole course and...

As in the previous editions, students of the third edition of Nuffield Advanced Chemistry were required to undertake a four-week study of an applied aspect of science which was based on chemical principles.

The Nuffield Foundation did not carry out a complete revision of the Nuffield Advanced Biology resources but, in 1994, published three supplementary publications to give...

The materials produced by the Nuffield Foundations' Advanced Biological Science Project did not represent a rigid syllabus. They were devised after careful evaluation of the results of extensive school trials so that they could be used in a variety of ways related to the different circumstances found in schools and...

The work in the Laboratory Guides was of three types.
*Preliminary work aimed to cover possible deficiencies in the students' background and provides reinforcement material for the less able student.
*Main work was within the capacity of the majority of A-level students. The amount of practical work was...
