AS Physics: Mechanics

This collection is built around the main structure of the AQA Physics A Specifications for AS Unit 2 Mechanics, but the resources used will certainly be of great use and benefit for teachers who follow other specifications too. You will find some great resources, lesson ideas and revision games and activities to help you teach and revise Mechanics with Post-16 students.

This collection was put together by our Science Adviser Alessio, whom you can follow on Twitter @TESScience and/or contact via email Alessio@tes.co.uk
