Over the last six years, the School of Physics has piloted the use of IT
in teaching the first year Foundations of Physics course.
This project was used to further develop this effort, by introducing interactive simulations into the learning environment,
which will be used during lectures, for self-study and as the basis for introducing ideas and developing problem-solving skills
in tutorial questions.
This website is the result of a development project
that was funded by the Physical Sciences subject center of the
Higher Education Academy (formerly LTSN).
A paper was published in Issue 1 [PDF] of New Directions in the Teaching of Physical Science.
