The Institute of Physics, based in London, has created this page for teachers looking for high-quality resources to help students learn about the basic principles and laws of physics. First-time visitors should click on the Resources for the Classroom section in the middle of the page. Here they will find interactive web-based activities and teaching tools like Practical Physics, SimPhysics, and Medical Physics. This last one is quite helpful, as it is designed to teach students about ultrasounds, the electromagnetic spectrum, and radioactivity. Under the Related Information: Education area on the right-hand side of the page, visitors will find even more tools, such as videos designed to help young women learn about physics, and a Physics Lives area. The latter is quite a pragmatic and welcome addition, as it features university research physicists talking about what they do on a day-to-day basis. The profiles have fun titles, such as "Baths and Quarks" and "Written in the Sky."
