The physics lab - teaching package involves the design and implementation of a visual simulation of a number of scenarios that would typically be encountered in an a-level physics course. The emphasis of this project is on providing a way of visualising the actions of forces on objects and how these actions are reflected by the underlying equations. The package would be used as a teaching aid by an instructor to demonstrate the application of these equations, which would otherwise be difficult or dangerous to perform. This package should also provide a more engaging method of teaching students the mathematical concepts behind various applications of force and help students to better understand these concepts.
