Vinita Sharat, The Shri Ram School, India

The InThinking Physics site has been a life saver. Chris's explanations of syllabus content and assessment criteria have helped enormously with planning and programming. The inclusion of marked IAs in particular was really beneficial when I started teaching...

I am very pleased with the website and the material. Love the animated multiple choice test questions. That is a great way to ask questions and cannot be accomplished with questions on paper. Also, the labs are very good and the suggestions are very...

    Hi Chris, A student of mine is attempting to find out the coefficient of static and dynamic friction of different materials when moved on synthetic turf. He has tried 3 different materials, done 3 trials each and plotted Force vs Time graphs...
