Mechanics Curriculum Mapping

This page contains our A-level Mechanics Curriculum Mapping document links. The problems are grouped at the module-level and typically involve a range of dynamical concepts rather than a focus on a specific routine or single idea. Use of even a small number of these resources will greatly enhance the appreciation of the fascinating and subtle ideas involved in mechanics.

Many of these mechanics resources can be very effective when used asĀ  pre-module motivation to raise various concepts in mechanics or for post-module consolidation. Many can be approached at various levels of sophistication, so you may wish to return to various problems as your knowledge increases or to use them to stimulate discussion. The first link, Mathematical Models in Mechanics contains many of the best problems for these purposes.
