Vector Investigation

Vector Investigation

This assignment developed from my intention to write some original questions for my Geometry and Trigonometry students, I found that the decisions process was much more instructive than the resulting questions. Hence I chose to set this task requiring the students to create a storyline themselves using Position and Velocity vectors. It also addresses literacy across the curriculum requirements.

Objects on top of each other - worksheet for this topic in Mechanics 1

Objects on top of each other - worksheet for this topic in Mechanics 1

It can be difficult to understand the forces acting when one object is placed on top of another. I have used this worksheet to help my students understand this type of problem and give them the opportunity to practise questions ranging from basic up to examination standard. There are 10 questions in total, worked solutions are included.

Worksheet to introduce variable acceleration - Mechanics 1

Worksheet to introduce variable acceleration - Mechanics 1

I have used this worksheet to teach my classes about using differentiation/integration to investigate the motion of an object with variable acceleration. Having these printable worksheets that I can project on a board and the students can work on seems to save a lot of time and effort for this topic. The introduction builds on what they should already know from velocity-time and displacement-time graphs for constant acceleration, deriving the methods needed for variable acceleration. There is then 1 example that requires differentiation and 1 that requires integration. Answers are not included as I usually work through this with my classes. Other mechanics resources are available - please see my shop.

Worksheet to practise writing F=ma correctly for more than 1 force - Mechanics 1

Worksheet to practise writing F=ma correctly for more than 1 force - Mechanics 1

This short worksheet can be used to check that your students have understood how to use Newton's second law in situations where more than 1 force is acting on the object. The questions only involve objects on horizontal surfaces and all forces are parallel to the surface. The questions can easily be extended by asking students to work out the acceleration, mass or missing force in each question. Answers are not included as I usually work through this sheet with my class. Other mechanics resources are available - please see my shop.

Resources to introduce velocity-time and displacement-time graphs - Mechanics 1

Resources to introduce velocity-time and displacement-time graphs - Mechanics 1

I have used these two worksheets to teach my classes about the important properties of velocity-time and displacement-time graphs. Having these printable worksheets that I can project on a board and the students can work on seems to save a lot of time and effort for this topic. Each worksheet has a number of examples to illustrate particular properties of the graphs and there are spaces at the end to summarise these properties. I hope you find them useful. Answers are not included as I usually work through these with my classes. Other mechanics resources are available - please see my shop.

Huge set of worksheets for teaching/practising Mechanics 1 topics

Huge set of worksheets for teaching/practising Mechanics 1 topics

This bundle includes resources used to introduce and explain concepts or skills (e.g. friction, resolving forces) and worksheets with lots of examination-style questions for students to use as practice. The resources make it easier to teach topics as you can project the examples (with diagrams) onto the board, and the large number of questions means you don't need to search for suitable exercises for students to complete. In total there are over 300 questions here, all specifically designed to teach the skills and knowledge required for the (OCR) Mechanics 1 examination. A huge amount of work went into preparing these resources and there is enough material to fill weeks and weeks of lessons. Answers to all worksheets are provided.
