Kia Ora, Hello and Welcome to the 9Tui page on the Whangarei Girls' High School Physics Wiki
Pinhole Camera 2.jpg
There are two purposes for this page: Firstly, to provide a handy place for links to useful and/or interesting sites. Secondly, to provide a place where the lesson plans, lesson notes and other handy files can be stored and accessed online. This could be handy for reference, review or for people who are not able to attend classes right now because they are away from school for sickness or field trips.
THE FIRST PART - Links There are some great youtube clips and other links that are really worth another look. I have posted links to them here:
Plants that spread seeds using the wind
Plants that spread seeds as internal hitch-hikers
Plants that spread seed by being external hitch-hikers

What is a Lunar Eclipse and what causes it?
THE SECOND PART - Files that are not lessons
Occasionally, I show files like PowerPoints and Word documents that are not lesson plans. So far, I have shown one, from memory. It is the PowerPoint of the objectives for the first unit. More to come late.

THE THIRD PART - Photographs
None posted here yet.
THE FOURTH PART - Lesson Plans and Notes
The lesson plans and notes are available via a code. The code is not very secret.
"9Tui Y15 M02 D04.pptx" means:
9Tui - the lesson plan and notes for this classs
Y15 - this year: 2015
M02 - the second month, i.e. February
D05 - the 4th day of the month, i.e the 4th of February, 2015
pptx - this means that the file is a PowerPoint and you will need this software on your computer to open and look at it.

THE FIFTH PART - mini youtube tutorials by Mr Henderson
There will be some small youtube tutorial clips appearing here soon. WATCH THIS SPACE.
THE SIXTH PART - mini youtube tutorials by other people
A video to help with the HUMAN IMPACT part of the assignment
