#### Diodes

A concise lesson presentation that focuses on the key details that students need to know about diodes for the GCSE examinations. The lesson begins by introducing the idea that diodes only allow current to flow in one direction. Moving forwards, time is taken to go through the potential difference vs current graph in 3 parts so that students can explain how the diode functions. Moving forwards, students will meet a LED and then in the style commonly associated with the 6 mark exam question, they are challenged to use data in a table to compare the effectiveness of a LED against other light bulbs.

#### Circuit calculations (in series and parallel)

A detailed lesson presentation which guides students through calculating the current, potential difference and resistance in series and parallel circuits. The lesson begins by challenging the students to recognise whether three displayed facts relate to series or parallel circuits. Students are then given a chance to remind themselves of the differences between the circuits in terms of these three physical factors. The rest of the lesson uses a step-by-step guide format to show the students how to work through a circuit calculation by combining their knowledge of the circuit with application of the V = IR equation. Progress checks have been written throughout the lesson so that students can constantly assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students

#### Inspiring interest in radio communications

SDRplay provide a “software defined radio” (SDR) which turns a Raspberry Pi or PC into a full communications receiver capable of picking up radio signals across the spectrum from long waves to microwaves. All you need is the SDR and a simple antenna which is often just a length of wire. This simple tutorial can help a class pick up signals for themselves: https://youtu.be/JvP8t8aPmRw and this inspiring video shows how a class can pick up actual pictures from the International Space Station (first the class can practice on other signals and when they are ready, they can time their listening for when the ISS is transmitting pictures and passing overhead. See: https://youtu.be/vRwH0FlH9MA Potentially SDRplay can lend a school an RSP1A, or they can be bought with educational discount by emailing jon.hudson@sdrplay.com (SDRplay co-founder)
