Derivation of the Equations of Motion (SUVAT)

Derivation of the Equations of Motion (SUVAT)

6-minute video leading students through the derivation of the four Equations of Motion for objects moving with constant acceleration (SUVAT), starting from a velocity-time graph and then using the gradient and the area under the graph (and a little algebraic manipulation) to arrive at the set of four. Great for some flipped learning, a little revision or some consolidation.

Centripetal acceleration formula

Centripetal acceleration formula

A simple yet rigorous mathematical derivation of the centripetal acceleration formula, a=(v^2)/r, including that the direction is towards the centre of the circle. Use as a handout for A-level students who want to push themselves a little beyond the specification without getting out of their depth.

Mechanics New Curriculum

Mechanics New Curriculum

Learning Objectives and Formulas that are used for each chapter for the New A-level Mechanics Maths Curriculum. These could be print on a card and students could fill in their understanding over the lessons as well as teacher could give feedback on students learning.

A Level Maths Revision - S1, D1, M1, S2 - Things to Learn

A Level Maths Revision - S1, D1, M1, S2 - Things to Learn

Everything you need to learn for S1, D1, M1 and S2 all squeezed onto 9 sheets of A4. These are my own handwritten notes, from doing many years of past papers. A fantastic resource. Brilliant for revision, or for using alongside practise papers. Very useful for teachers, I always have this with me in lessons for quick referencing. The notes are based on the Edexcel exam board, but are also useful for other boards. The document is 10 pages in total. Keywords: teaching notes, handout, UK, S1, D1, M1, S2, Statistics 1, Statistics 2, Mechanics 1, Decision 1, A Level, first year, 1st year, 2nd year, mathematics, maths, revision, revise, review, notes.
