Sixty Symbols

Top Subjects:  Animals   Art/Architecture   Geography   Health   History   Math   Reading   Science
Resource:Sixty Symbols
Provider:University of Nottingham
Summary:Age Range: 6-18 (Grades 1-12, with parental supervision). This fantastic website offers FREE videos about physics and astronomy featuring experts from The University of Nottingham, who explain the strange letters and squiggles (many more than 60 of them) used by scientists.
Description:As explained at the website, "Sixty Symbols is a collection of videos by experts from The University of Nottingham. It's worth noting many symbols have multiple uses across scientific disciplines and we sometimes tackle them from an unexpected viewpoint." Here's some of what you'll see:
  • Click on "E" for energy and see an Einstein doll on a swing as a demonstration of potential and kinetic energy.

  • Click on the symbol for the planet Venus (looks like a hand mirror) and learn all about it. You'll also learn the history of the symbol and its use as the universal symbol for women.

  • What has a symbol of a cat got to do with physics? Visit the site, click on the cat and find out!
When you get to the site you'll see the table of Sixty Symbols (and then some). Click on any one and a new page opens where a video launches that explains it. They are wonderfully engaging and educating.
