Disciplinary Resources for SSCI

[CHEM] The Chemistry Add-in for Microsoft Word

The Chemistry Add-in for Word makes it easier to insert and modify chemical information, such as labels, formulas, and 2-D depictions, within Microsoft Office Word. Additionally, it enables the creation of inline “chemical zones,” the rendering of print-ready visual depictions of chemical structures, and the ability to store and expose chemical information in a semantically rich manner.

[MATH] Maths E.G.

Maths E.G. is collection of Mathematics questions with examples of fully-worked solutions to help students with their study. Most of the questions are at A-level standard, but some are at university level.

Under a Creative Commons licence, Maths E.G. is free to use for any educational purpose. The student version is available at:

The instructor version and more content will follow by end of 2011. If you are interested to hear more about this work, you may contact Martin.Greenhow@BRUNEL.AC.UK.

[PHYS] Physics resources

Put together by the Duke University Library, this is a collection of Physics related materials including links to Societies, Reference Help, Fun, Databases, Electronic Journals, Educational Materials, Preprints and Publishers.

[PHYS] U.C. Berkeley Physics Lecture Demonstrations

This site hosts "a collection of diagrams for constructing physics demonstrations at lectures." Topics such as Mechanics, Waves, Optics and Properties of Heat and Matters are included. The site also provides other resources including Audio Visual Materials, Things for Interest (Movies and Images) and Downloadable Notebook.

[PHYS] Physicsworld

This site hosts numerous links for "Physics news, jobs and resources." Feature such as Resources is a repository of links for Physics education including courses, exercises, lecture notes, interactive experiments, research in education and electronic textbooks. From this link, you can also get links to publishing, reference and organizations. In addition, the Best of Physics Web "brings together articles about the most exciting areas of modern physics."

[PHYS] Computer Animations of Physical Process

This site hosts a list of Physics animations including Waves, Optics, Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Electricity. Most of the topics covered in each feature are illustrated with an image, brief explanation of the theory and a video. You can also view the Science's 10 most beautiful experiments and download the animations.

[PHYS] Spectrum of Physics

This site hosts a comprehensive directory for physics related lecture notes, reference, journals, periodic table and many other resources. Topics covered including relativity, quantum theory, black holes, particle physics, cosmology and thermodynamics. The miscellaneous also contains expansive links to physicists and scientists.

[MATH] Netlib Database

"The database contains information about upcoming conferences, lectures, and other meetings relevant to the fields of mathematics and computer science worldwide."

[MATH] Mathcentre - For the Help you Need to Support your Course

Numerous resources can be used and adapted from this online mathematics centre for both students and staff. Features like Leaflets, Teach-yourself booklets and Revision booklets cover a wide range of Math topics from basic to complex ones across different disciplines. Step by step guidance with explanation, examples, exercises and solutions are provided, along with a series of self-explanatory online video tutorials that explain different Math topics. Another resourceful feature for staff is the Guides and Case Studies where insights and experiences in launching different Math projects are shared amongst different universities. Practical recommendations and considerations for adapting the projects are suggested for academics in teaching Mathematics.

[MATH] Mathematical Visualization Toolkit (MVT)

The MVT has won a number of awards including the 2005 MERLOT Classics Award for its contribution to the development of effective teaching and learning tools in Mathematics. The site "consists of a collection of plotting and solving applets featuring a uniform user interface to help visualizing mathematical concepts". The Calculus Resources in particular provides many resource links and you can also directly contact the MVT team to get more information on how to utilize the Toolkit in teaching and learning.
