The Periodic Table of Videos
One of my favourite sites at the moment - sample video below. You can also follow these guys on Twitter (@PeriodicVideos).
Produced by the University of Nottingham, this website contains short explanatory videos about certain aspects of physics and astronomy.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration website. You can also follow the astronauts on Twitter (@NASA_Astronauts).
Good, concise physics notes provided by Georgia State University in the US. Some nice videos, too!
Some A-level notes and activities. Still under development, it seems, though.
The most comprehensive Periodic Table available on the web.
CLEAPSS is an organisation supporting practical science in schools. They have recently started to upload videos of many common school experiments. There are also videos of some more dangerous experiments that you'll rarely see in school.
If you are serious about Chemistry at A-level, you should subscribe to their YouTube channel.
There is humour in science, as demonstrated by some of these lesser known molecule names.
Jim Clark's excellent and comprehensive site covering all areas of A-level Chemistry. Should be your first port of call when looking for help on the web.
More notes on A-level (and GCSE) Chemistry.
Interactive lab primer
An RSC resource supporting practical chemistry. You can watch explanatory animations and videos showing all of the major laboratory techniques and apparatus that you are likely to encounter at A-level.
An RSC-sponsored resource with short notes and activities covering the main areas of the A-level Chemistry specificiations. There is now a subscription fee; Ivybridge students will have been given their access details in lessons.
A website containing lots of free A-level Chemistry notes (as downloadable PDFs) and Powerpoints, many of which I use in my own teaching.
A blank canvas for creating organic reaction pathways. You can practise interconverting the main organic compounds mentioned in your A-level specification and the application will tell you the reaction conditions for each conversion. Very useful for revising for synoptic organic chemistry questions.
Films and photos of the world's endangered animals, plants and fungi.
Ask A Biologist
Lots of great information covering the whole of secondary school biology. Easy-to-use search bar at the top right.
Resources written specifically for A-level Biology students.
