I am currently a Lecturer in Engineering Design at a University, prior to this I worked in secondary schools as a specialist physics teacher. My experience from working at these levels of education has emphasised the need to ensure fundamentals in science are mastered by students for continued success in education & beyond. My resources aim to clearly communicate complex scientific principles through clear visuals and explanations - with well structured tasks to practice what has been learnt.

GCSE Physics P1 - Electromagnetic Spectrum

(6)
Complete lesson on Electromagnetic Spectrum/Uses/Risks with key content from AQA Physics. This lesson covers the electromagnetic spectrum, waves uses, wave risk, order and size of waves and mobile risks. Starter uses a fun riddle challenge which pupils enjoyed doing in Generating Electricity and so asked for another. The lesson explores the spectrum by order of identities of waves, wavelength, frequency and energy. A quick task on multipliers, standard form and prefixes helps pupils understand the notation commonly seen on the EM spectrum and also as questioned in exams. A task gets pupils to explore different EM waves using information sheet for them to use to summarise key information. Then mobile phone risk is then discussed along with correlation and causation. Plenary quick quiz and some exam style questions which can be used as mini plenaries to link to exams. More lessons in same format for P1. https://www.tes.com/member/Nteach

GCSE AQA Physics - Force & Elasticity

(2)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on Forces and Elasticity written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Lesson starts by discussing what elasticity is in relation to familiar, everyday objects which then challenge pupil thinking with 'slo-mo' videos of these objects being impacted. Elasticity is then further explored with compression and tension in springs and also related to other objects. To assist pupils in their understanding of the force extension graphs for materials proportionality is reviewed mathematically. A class experiment is detailed using simple Physics equipment to test everyday materials for to produce a force-extension graph. Conclusions can then be drawn from the data produced in this experiment. Hooke's law is detailed and related to a simply spring extension experiment and used to highlight spring constants. Plenary poses a summary question for pupils to answer with detailed responses showing their understanding of elasticity. Learning Objectives: - Identify objects in compression or tension. - Explain what is meant by a proportional relationship. - Describe an experiment to extension of an object due to force applied. - Interpret and draw conclusions from a force-extension graph.

GCSE AQA Physics - P2.1 - Energy Transfer by Conduction

(3)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on 'Energy Transfer by Conduction' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Choice of two different starters to prompt discussion of heat transfer by conduction. Either looking at cooking using rods through meat or placing ice on different materials to melt. A series of scenarios are shown involving heat conduction which allow pupils to discuss why things feel hot or cold. A class experiment is provided which uses different material rods to identify which one conducts heat quickest. The results of this are then discussed with questions to start promoting good scientific investigation skills. Thermal conductivity is explored by looking at the meaning of each words separately and then together. Pupils are then to put a number of different material in order of thermal conductivity, which is then discussed for common materials which are highly conductive or poorly conductive. This leads onto thermal insulation and some final review questions. Lesson Objectives: 1) Provide definitions for conductors and insulators. 2) Identify common conductors and insulators and explain in relation to thermal conductivity. 3) Relate thermal conductivity to rate of energy transfer. 4) Explain ways in which rate of heat transfer can be reduced.

2 New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on 'Infrared Radiation & Black body radiation' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Bundled together is 2 complete lessons on infra-red radiation with different learning objectives and activities. LESSON 1 - Infrared radiation and black body radiation Lesson starts with optical illusion which makes white dots appear black, this is to start thoughts on what black is and engage students with something a bit different. The difference between heat and temperature is discussed to lead to what infrared radiation is. A question posed about whether ice gives off infrared radiation consolidates a key point. Thermal imaging is explored with how it works and a guess what it is exercise of infrared images. Different shades of black are shown to discuss what black does in terms of visible light, leading to an explanation of perfect black body radiation. Black body radiation and infrared emission at varied temperatures is discussed (including a link to a useful simulation). The effect of absorption and emission of infrared on bodies is detailed concluding with summary question on the topic. Lesson Objectives: State the difference between heat and infra-red radiation. Explain what is meant by ‘black-body radiation’. Identify the effects of infra-red radiation can have on a body. Relate the effects of absorption and emission of infra-red radiation has on a body. LESSON 2 - Infrared radiation, surfaces and bodies The use of black balls on the LA reservoir is shown in gif images to pupils to discuss why they did this. Absorption and emission of infrared is reviewed briefly. This leads to factors which effect the Earth's temperature and how greenhouse gases impact this. An experiment to investigate different surfaces and infrared emission, absorption and reflection is outlined. The key points from this investigation are summarised for note taking. A true or false activity reviews previous content followed by review questions. Infrared emission, absorption and reflection is applied through questioning to the Earth & the moon, satellites in space and the starter on the LA reservoir. Lesson Objectives: Identify and explain key factors that effect the temperature of the Earth. Investigate and identify the properties of different materials and their effect on infra-red radiation. Apply your knowledge of infrared radiation and surfaces to real life problems. Explain why the temperature on the Moon is different to the Earth.

GCSE AQA Physics - P9.2-3 - Velocity - time graphs

(2)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on ‘Velocity - time graphs’ written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Starter prompts pupils to discuss what would win a race, a sports car on the road or a car falling from the sky in a mile race. Pupils are then asked to put cars in order acceleration in terms of 0-60 mph. The difference between speed and velocity is highlighted. A class activity uses a video car chase for pupils to time the duration of different events which is then used to create a velocity time graph. This allows for the v-t graph to be discussed in terms of what the trends show. Key v-t graph trends are highlighted and reviewed with how gradients of v-t graphs can give acceleration. Pupils are then tasked to answer questions in relation to the v-t graph from the car chase video. A quick task requires pupils to match v-t graph trends with d-t graph trends. The plenary takes a look at a v-t graph for a sky diver to start discussing this area. Lesson Objectives: Plot a v-t graph. Identify key v-t graph trends. Use the gradient of a v-t graph to calculate the acceleration of an object. Analyse motion of a body using a v-t graph.
