Physics calculations for GCSE and IGCSE
I am Head of Physics at the highly rated John Taylor High School in Staffordshire, England and have recently written the book ‘Physics calculations for GCSE & IGCSE’ which has just been published on Amazon and is available in paperback and kindle.
See link below:
The book is intended to improve Physics education and is set apart from others because of the depth and detail that goes into explaining each formula and the underlying Physics relevant to each one. It also takes the time to actually explain the mathematics. It is brimming with thorough and clear explanations, practice questions, and answers to all questions are at the back of the book. The book is not just about helping students to be successful in their Physics examinations it is also about making them better Physicists and improving their skill set. This improved understanding might also give them the opportunity to study Physics at a higher level which otherwise may not have been possible.
I am confident that the book will help to improve students problem solving skills, independent thinking, mathematical skills and deepen their understanding of the subject which would ease the transition from GCSE/IGCSE to ‘A’ level should they choose to study the subject at a higher level.
The book is ideal for GCSE/IGCSE students, trainee teachers, teachers and anyone who has an interest in Physics and problem solving.
I am a chartered physicist, member of the Institute of Physics and currently head of physics at John Taylor High School, Barton under Needwood, Staffordshire where I have taught since September 2000. Prior to starting at John Taylor, I taught for two years at the Pingle School in Derbyshire.
In 1997 I graduated with first class honours in physics and sports science from Loughborough University and completed my postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) the following year.
I am a former professional football player with Port Vale Football Club and represented England at U19 level in the 1991 World Youth Championships in Portugal before a spinal cord injury (transverse myelitis) ended my career in 1992. I am also a former British and West Midlands bench press champion.
