Even if there is only one possible unified theory, it is just a set of rules and equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe? The usual approach of science of constructing a mathematical model cannot answer the questions of why there should be a universe for the model to describe. Why does the universe go to all the bother of existing?

— Hawking, Stephen W. (1942-) b. Oxford, England

Wanted: Volunteers to prepare online revision materials….

I am constructing some online revision materials for our present Year 10. These revision activities will also be used for re-sit students in Year 11. The activities are totally interactive, and promote AfL and independent learning. They can be done anywhere students have access to a computer. The software is HotPotatoes, and it only takes less than 10 minutes to get familiar with this superb program. Activities can be stored on computers, printed out, or uploaded for total interactive experience. The activities include Cloze, Crossword, Matching Exercises, Jumbled Sentences, Multiple Choice Questions. So, these exercises can be used as suitable for starter and/or consolidation activities in lessons. There are useful online guides on how to make your own exercises. You can download Hot Potatoes Software from http://hotpot.uvic.ca/ .

Here are some sample exercises recently constructed for 21st Century Science :
