Leaving Certificate Physics Notes and support from this fledgling, Irish, educational, site are specifically designed for the needs of the Irish syllabus at both Leaving and Junior Certificate level. Teachers and Students are further advised that there are resources on all subjects available at Leaving and at ScoilNet. These are terrific and totally free sites.


  1. A New Model Course in Applied Quantum Physics. A set of instructor resources for introductory quantum mechanics and modern physics. An absolute treasure trove for teachers of Applied Quantum Physics. Many of the materials, which are totally free, are available in editable form

  2. A Physics mega link of particle physics education sites i.e. it contains lots of links to other links

  3. ALEPH is a particle physics experiment installed at LEP, Its purpose is to explore the Standard Model of particle physics and search for manifestations of new physics

  4. A super mega link to superb educational links which house some terrific particle physics resources as well as some great general physics sites and mega links. More links here than your average student or teacher of physics could hope to explore in a lifetime.

  5. A superb site for Leaving Certificate Physics. The unique feature of IASTE is the consistent and comprehensive links between the curriculum, which can seem abstract, and how it applies in the real world. In time you will find the complete course materials for all the sciences at both Junior and Leaving certificate levels.

  14. High Energy Physics Information Center (HEPIC) Education Resources For Students and the General Public:

  15. Hit the History Center tab on the left of the page and then just follow the links to some excellent educational resources

  16. Hit this resources link for some of the best educational physics resources available on the internet. A superb site for students of physics

  17. How Stuff Works. Click the links on the left of the page or use their search facility. How Stuff Works contains thousands of topics! Just about anything that fits into the form "how stuff works" is fair game for the site.

  18. Interactive particle Physics tutorial. The Particle Adventure is an award-winning site that allows you to explore the world of fundamental particles and forces and then to investigate the experimental evidence and techniques.

  19. Jila is an interdisciplinary institute for research and graduate education in the physical sciences. Click on "bringing Science to the public link" to go to Schedule for the CU Wizards Series (public presentations on science) and link to Physics 2000 (an interactive learning site). Terrific applets.

  20. Maths and Physics Home Page. Good resources in selected topics. Check out the "selected other educational websites" tab for some excellent resources in maths and physics

  21. Mega link to the Department of Physics, Harvard University where you will find links to all sorts of useful resources/topics including assignments, past examination questions and suggested answers

  22. Outreach Activities for the General Public, for High Schools, and for Colleges. The U.S. LHC Project provides anon-technical description of what students can learn with the LHC

  23. Physics Documents Worldwide - offers lists of links to document sources, such as preprints, research reports, annual reports, and list of publications of worldwide distributed physics institutions and induvidual physicists, ordered by continent, country and town. Also, click on the 'links tab' on the left of the page for physics resources that just go on and on

  24. Particle Physics Education and Information sites for a page of links on particle physics

  25. Particle Physics Resources for High School Teachers at CERN for a wealth of teaching resources for current course

  26. Physics and Astronomy. Browse questions, ask questions, send a comment or check out the great links.

  27. Physics is fun. Here you'll find interesting approaches to physics from an everyday standpoint. After each lesson you are given an experiment to try out at home or you can take a test and see what you've learned.

  28. Physics Internet Resources, provided by the American Physical Society. The term mega link does not do justice to this site. It would take years to explore all the links to terrific resources that are to be found at this site

  29. Particle Physics Information and Databases

  30. Physics Web. Features from Physics World magazine complement PhysicsWeb news stories and essential links to related Web sites. Best of Physics Web will be frequently updated with fresh content to ensure that it remains the best gateway to the cutting edge of modern physics
