Velocity-time graphs

Velocity-time graphs

A detailed lesson presentation (38 slides) that looks at the different motions that are represented on a velocity-time graph and guides students through using these graphs to calculate the distance travelled by an object. The lesson begins by challenging the students to construct a velocity-time graph by using a displayed guide and using their knowledge of drawing a distance-time graph. Moving forwards, the students will match terms of motion to the lines on the graph and time is taken to make links to the physics equations that allow acceleration and deceleration to be calculated. Students will also learn that they can use a velocity-time graph to calculate the distance travelled. A worked example is used to show them how to tackle these questions. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding of this topic. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used with higher ability KS3 students

GCSE Physics Ticker Tape Drill

GCSE Physics Ticker Tape Drill

*********************** Save money by buying the bundles, which contain ALL of the Drill spreadsheets. £3 for the GCSE Bundle: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-11399132 £4 for the A Level Bundle: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-11399125 £6 for the GCSE and A Level Bundle: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-11399137 *********************** Dear Physics Teachers, 1. This resource will help your students practise measuring acceleration using ticker tape. 2. This resource is to be projected on a screen, used by students on a computer or used to print an unlimited number of different worksheets. 3. This resource is relevant to all new GCSE Physics specifications, where the use of ticker tape timers is a standard practical way of measuring acceleration. Info: Simulating the tape from a ticker-tape timer connected to a 50 Hz AC supply (0.02s time interval between dots), this worksheet generator produces five questions each time. Pressing F9 in Excel for Windows (or Cmd + = in Excel for Mac) recalculates the formulas, randomly choosing five new questions with five new accelerations to measure. The sheet tab "answers" has the answers filled in. This should print correctly to scale on A4 paper, but if not, the rulers are drawn with mm intervals to allow them to be used instead of direct measurement. This worksheet generator can be projected on the screen so that the teacher can explain to the students how to measure acceleration with the ticker-tape, then an unlimited number of unique worksheets can be generated so they can practise the skill.

The Big Bang Theory TV Series Wordsearch Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

The Big Bang Theory TV Series Wordsearch Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The Big Bang Theory'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
