Astronomy-related content and robotic telescopes in upper secondary physics courses
The article reviews briefly the astronomy and astronomy-related content of the six A-level physics specifications in the UK, of physics in the International Baccalaureate and GCSE astronomy. A web-link is provided to a detailed analysis by topic and by specification. The role of robotic telescopes controlled over the Internet is also discussed. The article follows on from the article in the last issue of SSR (Beare, 2004) which surveyed useful resources for teaching astronomy at this level.
