Longman Physics Topics
The Longman Physics Topics series was written to provide background material for physics courses that were modern in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The authors were closely associated with the Nuffield Physics Project, and had an intimate knowledge of the spirit of that course. The books were not intended to be textbooks so they did not give the answers to investigations that students might be carrying out in the laboratory. Instead they showed the relevance and application in the outside world of the principles studied in school.
Despite their age, these books contain text and diagrams that are still useful today. It is the accounts of applications and especially some of the photographs that are particularly dated.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
These books from the Longman Physics Topics series were written for students in the first three years of secondary education. The authors aimed to write books that were easy to read and copiously illustrated and showed how the principles studied in school were applied in the outside world. The books were not intended to be textbooks.…
