#### Edexcel GCSE Physics Paper Two Revision Quick Questions New Spec 2018 AND DOUBLE AWARD

Revision resource that can be used as a whole lesson(s) activity/homeworks/revision tasks Specifically for Edexcel Physics GCSE and Edexcel Double Award Science (Physics units) PAPER TWO Foundation and Higher Includes: Every unit SP8-15 and CP7-13 has between 50 and 162 questions. Most questions are one mark questions although some require more detail. Foundation and Higher level questions Foundation questions are in regular font Higher questions are in bold font Ideal for last minute revision - learning the answers should enable pupils to achieve at least a grade 4/5 - although knowledge up to grade8/9 is also tested. Separate pdfs contain the mark schemes for each set of questions

#### GCSE Physics and/or Combined Science Differentiated Equation Worksheet - Power, Energy and Time

For KS4 Combined Science / Physics students. There are 14 differentiated questions around using Energy (J) = Power (W) x Time (s). Like students do in maths, students will be able to apply the equation and use the triangle method for rearranging. Q1 is simplest and Q14 is hardest. Q1 to 5 - 1 Chilli (Low demand). Focussed around remembering equations (students should use mini whiteboards or scrap paper for repitition) Q6 to 8 - 2 Chilli’s (Low/Middle Demand). Focussed around using the equation - e.g. simple conversion or having to rearrange the equation. Q9 to 11 - 3 Chilli’s (Middle/High Demand). Rearranging the equation and using conversions. Q12 to 14 - 4 Chilli’s (High Demand). Stretch questions, e.g. towards Year 12 or short written answers. Designed so that students can choose where to start, although the highest ability will want to complete all of the questions. Could be used to assess prior knowledge. Homework (easy to mark and suggest how to move forward as focussed around skills of using equations). Also use for plenary and as part of “low stake” tests - build up a series of “mini-marks” before larger tests so students can identify their strengths and weaknesses. Answers available through a tutorial on YouTube (teach yourself and/or make available to students).
