The purpose of this site is to provide access to Maths and Physics A-level resources that I would like to use in supporting my students.

Have a browse. You might find something interesting.

Some notes on: the evolution of stars; atomic absorption and emission spectra, and the energy levels in atoms.

Maths:

Calculus of Variations, Complex Numbers and Matrices, Fourier Series, Fractions, Integrating Normal-Like Functions, The Quotient Rule for Integration, Simpson's Rule, The Trapezium Rule, Standard Angles in Trigonometry, Vectors, and Valid Old Exam Questions for new Edexcel exams.

Physics:

Bioacoustics, How to Use the Bolzmann Factor, Circular Motion and SHM, Interference and Diffraction, Electromagnetic Induction, a Glossary, Definitions of Materials Properties, Various Particle stuff, Gas Laws and the Kinetic Theory.

I've managed to complete the latest magnum opus: Mistakes People Make Doing A-Level Maths, and How to Prevent Them! Check it out!!

Oh, and various other stuff: Solving trigonometrical Equations, How to write Personal Statements, Boltzmann Factor stuff, The Shell Theorem, and how high does a plane have to be to be visible to a radar?

I've managed to complete the latest mega-blockbuster: Particle-opoly! Check it out!! Oh, and some worked solutions to past paper particle physics questions, too.

I've finally got around to completing the document that tries to help those of you doing Physics that have problems answering the explain-type questions.

Here's something you might find useful: notes on learning how to learn. It covers the evidence for and against various learning strategies, and provides you with all the strategies you need to be a successful learner.

I've added a new page today: the Tuition -> Maths -> Sequences and Series Page. I've just written a document outlining how to calculate mortgage payments, which only uses geometric series.

I've created a Research Page, which is where I think this should now reside!

I've added a new page today: the Games Page. At present just to hold stuff that I discover and develop about the wonderful game of Diplomacy.

Not quite sure where to put this. Should it go in with the guitars, or in the physics? At present, you can find it in Music -> Guitars -> Guitar String Model.

Two new documents have been added to try and explain how to do integrations!

This document has been updated.

A new document has been added to try and explain how integration by substitution works.

New documents attempting to bring together important ideas about gravitational and electric fields, and lots of example questions to test you.

A new document explaining phase, phase difference and path difference in waves.

Loads of new stuff going in today!

I've finally got around to recording this!

The latest song...!

I've written a couple of documents about function transformations that you can find under Maths Tuition.

There are now past paper questions available for Radioactivity, Specific Heat Capacity and Thermodynamics. All questions come from previous syllabi, but are relevant to today's courses. The answers are more than just mark-scheme answers. The idea is that I provide detailed explanations of how to answer the questions.

There are now past paper questions available for Heat Engines, Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics. All questions come from previous syllabi, but are relevant to today's courses. The answers are more than just mark-scheme answers. The idea is that I provide detailed explanations of how to answer the questions.

There are now past paper questions available for Fields, Gas Laws, Gravitation and Materials. All questions come from previous syllabi, but are relevant to today's courses. The answers are more than just mark-scheme answers. The idea is that I provide detailed explanations of how to answer the questions.

There are now past paper questions available for Atomic Physics (AS and A2), Capacitors, Circular Motion and SHM, Electric Fields, Electricity, Electromagnetism and Momentum and Newton's Laws. All questions come from previous syllabi, but are relevant to today's courses. The answers are more than just mark-scheme answers. The idea is that I provide detailed explanations of how to answer the questions.

I've recorded a song of mine called 'Magic Tricks'. Check it out!

There are now packs of past papers for Edexcel modules D1, D2, FP1 and FP2.

I've now figured out a way of displaying pictures of my guitars in little galleries.

There are now packs of past papers for Edexcel modules C1-C4, M1, M2 and S1.

I've improved the menu system so that we now have a drop-down menu structure.

There is now a Maths Past Papers page. Currently, there is not much in it, but...

Superposition of Waves and String Harmonics animations are now available.

The site is now up and running. The first material to be added is the Tabular Method of doing Integration by Parts.

You can find this in Maths: Integration

This site is mainly aimed at my students...

...but I'll be including information in the site that will be of interest to parents of my current students, and also parents interested in enlisting my help for their child.
