Newton's 3rd Law of Motion

Newton's 3rd Law of Motion

Lesson on Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion with a lot of examples of interaction pairs, how to identify them and examples for students to apply this to. A demo of a teacher and a student pushing each other on skateboard is recommended to see how the equal forces have different effect on different masses. Final activity is to identify action and reaction pairs with answers provided.

Energy Calculations (AQA 9-1 Topic 1)

Energy Calculations (AQA 9-1 Topic 1)

A worksheet for pupils to practice recalling and using equations. Best used at the end of the topic when all the content has been taught, as all equations from the topic are required. Starts by recalling units and equations, then asks pupils to apply them to exam style calculation questions. The calculations increase in difficulty down the sheet and are asked at random as they would be in an exam, rather than just repeating one calculation Answers are provided.

Neutrinos

Neutrinos

Neutrinos are electrically neutral and the mass of the neutrino is tiny. As they travel through the universe they interact extremely rarely with other particles. What are the methods for detecting neutrinos and what meaning has its detection for the Standard Model of particle physics? This video gives detailed insight into the basics of neutrino research with lecture snippets of Nobel Laureates Rudolf Mössbauer, Masatoshi Koshiba und David Gross.

Gravitational Waves

Gravitational Waves

Gravitational waves are small distortions, or ripples, in the fabric of spacetime. They have been discovered for the first time after scientists managed to observe the warping of spacetime caused by the collision of two black holes over a billion years ago. In 2015, both Advanced LIGO detectors in the USA made the first direct measurement of gravitational waves. This film introduces to the causes and detection of gravitational waves with lecture snippets of Nobel Laureates Brian Schmidt, Willis Lamb und John Mather.

Springs Investigation

Springs Investigation

This is a lesson pack for my final official NQT lesson observation. In the previous lesson, I went through the method with the class, so they had it written in their books for this lesson and knew what they had to do. The presentation has differentiated steps on what to do for the investigation and plotting the graph. It has a success criteria followed by a model answer for each part, which helped students to peer assess their work. This is followed by a list of WWWs and EBIs to help them give each other formative feedback and also a mark out of 11. Research H/W opportunity for Hooke’s Law to link this onto the next lesson. Plenary activity is to apply their knowledge from their investigation to exam-style questions. The document has two questions per page (one for each student) with the mark scheme on the next page. The answers to the previous questions are in the reversed order to help with printing double-sided. For this activity, students had the chance to answer the question first, looking at the mark scheme and understanding the question better. They then go around the classroom and get 3 other students to answer their question and they explain to them whether they are correct or not and why. There are 6 different questions, so students should be able to answer a question that is different to their own. Final activity if there is time, is to spot the scientific and SPaG mistake on the statement on the presentation. Students work together in groups to identify the mistake and the answer is revealed. Fun finishing activity which will keep students very engaged at the very end of the lesson!

AQA Physics Formulae Revision Cards

AQA Physics Formulae Revision Cards

Designed for students to use to revise the formulae for the AQA P1 and P2 papers. Designed to be printed as double sided cards. The front has the equation, symbols and units and the back has two questions on it. The first requires students to simply substitute numbers into the equation. The second question on each card is more difficult to solve, usually requiring the formula to be rearranged or units converting.

Science end of year quiz

Science end of year quiz

This is a quiz i have made and used with year 7 through to year 11 and the students love it! Half the rounds are science related (periodic table, baby animals, biology, famous scientists, music, sport, brands and more!) I split the students into groups of 3 and keep a running total of marks from each round to give them a bit of competition. The answers are on the powerpoint in the note section so don’t panic! I find it’s a great and engaging, educational end to the year.
