Nervous System: Synapses and Nervous Control of Muscle

From the National Learning Network Materials' Biology collection, this interactive resource looks at the nervous control of muscles. Animations look at neurotransmitters and the transmission of impulses at synapses and the neuromuscular junction. Muscle fibre motor units and the control of muscle contraction is...

Nervous System: Action Potentials

From the National Learning Network Materials' Biology collection. This interactive resource shows how nerve signals, or action potentials, are transmitted along a nerve cell. Students see the cell's resting potential and how an action potential is generated and propogated along a nerve cell. The files to...

Enzyme Action

This unit of learning material, from the National Learning Network Materials' Biology collection, explains enzymes and enzyme action. Animations illustrate the lock and key model of enzyme action. Students see how temperature and pH influence the enzyme's active site and therefore the rate of reaction.   The files...

Physics AS Level - Homework Resource

Hi All! 

MarkIt is a startup that believes in helping students with their mistakes. It was originally started for A-level maths and has successfully worked with over 2,000 students and over 40 schools. We are branching into A-level physics as we believe this is a subject that needs to be made more...

The Salt Marsh App - discover, learn, survey

Have you ever explored a salt marsh?  The Salt Marsh App will introduce you to the unique variety of plants and animals found on salt marshes and you can carry out an interactive plant and soil survey.  

You can download the free app and find...

The Physics of Spin in Sport

This interactive resource provides information on the dynamics of flight for different projectiles in sport: a cricket ball, golf ball, foot ball, tennis ball, Frisbee and a shuttle cock. The information is most appropriate for GCSE to A-level Physics. Some content is at undergraduate physics level but could be...

The Science of Tennis

This interactive resource is designed to facilitate the understanding of tennis equipment and how it affects the game. The science is appropriate for students aged 14-16 and post-16 students but is particularly relevant to teachers of sports science. The modules are: Tennis shoes; Tennis rackets; Tennis balls;...

Go with the Flow CD-ROM

This multimedia package was developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme to help students understand the interesting and unusual properties of a range of fluids, semi-solids and solids. Published originally as a CD-ROM, the materials contain a collection of videos, animations and worksheets that are...

Multiplication in the Argand Diagram

This MEI interactive resource for complex numbers demonstrates multiplication and division in the Argand diagram. It is an extension piece of work.

Students are able to move two points and, from their new position, use the modulus argument form to multiply and divide complex numbers quickly and easily.

The Argand Diagram

This MEI online interactive resource for complex numbers demonstrates the Argand diagram.

This flash file can be used to plot a point in the complex plane. In this plane on the horizontal axis are the real numbers and on the vertical axis are the imaginary numbers. The point can be picked up an moved into...
