The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences team devised a science course covering biology, chemistry and physics in two subjects-worth of curriculum time. This was in line with the 1985 government policy statement Science 5 - 16 which set down the requirement for schools to provide courses of broad balanced science for all...

The rationale and detailed guidance on the teaching of Nuffield Co-ordinated was provided in a single, large Teachers’ Guide. The Guide was arranged in parts. These parts are presented separately in this collection of resources. The first part of the Teachers’ Guide set out the aims and structure of the course. In...

The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences Biology course aimed to introduce the biological principles which would help students to explain many of the phenomena they will observe in the natural world. It was also designed to help students towards a greater understanding of the functioning of their own bodies and their...

The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences Chemistry course was designed to introduce students to the everyday, industrial, and environmental importance of chemistry, while explaining sufficient theory to show them how scientific knowledge could help them to make sense of the world in which they live.

The content of the Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences Physics course was divided up into five topics:
P1 Matter
P2 Force and motion
P3 Energy
P4 Waves
P5 Electricity

The authors explained that physics cannot be presented as a ‘linear’ subject in which one topic leads inexorably to...

The Nuffield Co-ordinated Sciences supplementary Worksheets and Teachers' Guides were published to enable teachers to prepare students for separate-subject GCSE examinations in the three sciences. The extra worksheets were arranged to fit in with the topics in the teaching orders suggested for the main course.

The original Nuffield O-level Biology texts were published in the mid-1960s. About ten years later the texts and guides were revised following an evaluation of the materials.

Many teachers who had experience of using the materials contributed to the evaluation...
