Exploring Mechanics

This resource contains concept questions and investigations in mechanics. The material is designed for use with A-level students. The concept questions aim to test and develop students’ understanding of the basic concepts of mechanics. The investigations allow students to apply the mechanics that they have been learning in a number of contexts. It is also useful for teachers who would like to challenge and apply their own understanding. On the website the material is broken down into different sections and contains solutions to the concept questions.

Claire - All of the links on this page point to material hosted on external websites. These links were correct at the time that the page was published back in 2009. The strucuture of external websites are subject to change without ourselves being notified. We rely on users to inform us of any broken links, and we will do our best to try and find where the material has moved. Fortunately, we have been able to find fresh links to the material in this instance, and the links on our page have been updated.

Hi, there are still a couple of links that are not working. Do you know where they have moved? Thanks, Claire

Gwyn - Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The link had moved, so we've redirected the link.

The exploring mechanics link is now dead - has it moved?
