Kia Ora, Hello and Welcome to the 9Wana page on the Whangarei Girls' High School Physics Wiki 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 SECOND PART - LINKS There are some great youtube clips and other links that are really worth another look. I have posted links to them here:

THE THIRD PART - Non-Lesson files

THE FOURTH PART - Lesson plans and notes The lesson plans and notes are available via a code. The code is not very secret. "9Kea Y13 M02 D05 marked.pptx" means: 9Kea - the lesson plan and notes for this classs Y13 - this year: 2013 M02 - the second month, i.e. February D05 - the 5th day of the month, i.e the 5th of February, 2013 marked - this means that I have some handwritten notes or sketches on the slides after the lesson plan. pptx - this means that the file is a PowerPoint and you will need this software on your computer to open and look at it.

As time permits, I'll add some more of the earlier lesson plans and notes but for now, this gets our web page up and running.
Finally, feel free to email me with comments about this wiki page. I've put my email in the rather cryptic form below as this will reduce the chances that my email address will get harvested by spambots.
