I've just entered the high school teaching profession after fiteen years as a professional engineer working for Ford, GM etc, and I need a bit of refreshing my skill base.

The highest level I am teaching is British A level (17-18 yr old high school) qualifications - which is well inside my knowledge but feel the need to ensure I am OK upto 2nd year university physics

(My degrees are both electrical engineering - so this quantum stuff is a bit alien to me)

Any suggestions of where to go on the internet to bring myself back upto speed - preferable not too mathematical - I topped out on fourier & laplace about fifteen years ago so no complex matrix manipluations please.

Thanks (in expectation)

You've already found one place, welcome :smile:

As our Mentor Tom would say "PF: The next best thing to university"

Ask some questions, browse around the forums and you'll be caught up in no time.

Theres a web site called hyper physics or something similar. It is a collection of "slides" that cover much of introductory physics in a connected idea kind of way. I'm not sure of the exact web address, but if you google hyper physics it should come up.

yeah this forum is really great ;)

as for hyperphysics, it's awesome site, with nice navigation and lots of info :

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/

if you want to search for something specific you can use eprint archives, they got tons of pdf-s regarding all aspects of physics (bit more harder stuff, can have lots of math)

http://xxx.lanl.gov

and of course, the google directory, under science/physics.
