Geoff Derrin’s website - 2014


Welcome to my website for 2014.


I teach Science to boys at The Armidale School.
This website was written specifically for the boys in my classes.

It’s a bit like an old-fashioned textbook - but I hope it’s a lot better than a textbook because it links to a whole world of information via the internet.

As well as linking to information, I want it to be:

  1. an indication of the knowledge, understanding and skills I am trying to develop in my students;

  2. a link to relevant and interesting information in other places;

  3. a guide to the assessment tasks to be completed throughout the year.


What is Science anyway?


We all have a rough idea about what science is but putting our ideas about science into words is quite hard.  Here’s a page that might help.


Please let me know if you find any inaccuracies. 


A note on the images.   I have tried to use my own images wherever possible or images that are in the public domain - especially Wikipedia Commons.  Clicking on the image will generally take you to the source.
