Welcome to you 'parents of students of physics' - this page tells you how best to use this site!
I hope that you will find this site useful. I have had positive feedback from parents who have used my site to help them guide their child through the GCSE and A Level minefield.
I have listed below some 'site jumps' that I think you will find helpful to understanding the background to what your child is studying. Take a look at the links. Some of the subjects covered relate to the UK educational system - others will be useful to parents of students from any country.
I add to the site from time to time. If you want to hear of updates you can follow Cyberphysics on Facebook, Twitter - or raise queries on the Blogger page. I don't inundate you with posts - I just say when I have added something new...
The 'Exam preparation' menu choice on the top bar includes an 'exam skills' section that will take you to a selection of helpful articles on examination technique, revision tips etc. It is a useful section to look at if you want to improve your child's general skills. The 'UK Key Stages' choice in that menu takes you to the three secondary school 'key stages' and there are sections of example questions and their solutions to help you prepare your offspring for exams.
Each stage has interactive syllabuses which link to background pages where relevant.
Finding the Physics Information you need
The topic menu bar (on the left hand side) allows you to jump straight to a page of information on the topic you are interested in.
A dropdown menu allows you to find sub-topics within the general area.
You can also search within this site for any pages that contain a 'word' that interests you. Just use the Google search facility at the top of the page. Type in a word like 'force' and a page of links within this site will be listed for you.
The graphic below shows a small fraction of the pages that will appear...
The Contact section includes links to My YouTube Page. This hosts all of the animations I have uploaded; There is also a link that takes you to the Facebook and Twitter pages and an e-mail contact page.
Wide Reading links you to science news stories - a useful resource for projects and for 'reading around the subject' - to impress interviewers at Uni!
