2018-19 GCSE Physics AQA student progress trackers

Each topic has a content and a learning outcome content list. Each outcome is expressed in terms of I can and one of the Bloom's taxonomy verbs that show students progress in their knowledge and problem solving skills in Physics, from level 4 to 9

GCSE Physics Electromagnetism

GCSE Physics Electromagnetism

2017-19 AQA GCSE 4.7 Physics. Use these tables for students to keep a record of their progress in the Electricity units. The students can fill in the right-hand side column with a traffic light colour scheme to show their level of confidence in a sub-unit. For the teacher, this data can help formulate individual feedback or to plan revision interventions. Bloom's taxonomy is systematically used to help students develop the skills for answering exams style questions and competently communicate their subject knowledge.

Wind Farms Wordsearch Science Physics Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wind Farms Wordsearch Science Physics Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Wind Farms'. 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!

GCSE Physics Worksheet: Elastic Potential Energy, definition, formula, Q&A

GCSE Physics Worksheet: Elastic Potential Energy, definition, formula, Q&A

This format of worksheet is used for all my GCSE Physics formula based resources. They were created and then honed on weaker pupils who find it challenging to apply mathematics in Physics. The familiar format used for each topic with formulae puts the pupils at ease and they feel comfortable in using new formula in this way. The completed sheet is also included for the teachers reference.

OCR A Level Physics - Unit 6.1: Capacitors and Capacitance

OCR A Level Physics - Unit 6.1: Capacitors and Capacitance

The 3 resources that are a part of this bundle cover all of the specification points for the OCR A Level specification for Unit 6.1 - Capacitors and Capacitance. In total, the lessons should cover about 10-12 hours of teaching time (slightly more if you include the practical sessions),and depending on the ability of your students. Each of the resources are differentiated, and include answers to all of the questions.

Capacitors and Energy Storage

Capacitors and Energy Storage

This is a differentiated resource aimed at teachers and tutors that are delivering the OCR A Level Physics course. This lesson covers Unit 6: Capacitors and Energy Storage. Throughout the resource, there are a number of examples and AfL points to makes sure that students are moving along with the new ideas, with answers provided for all questions. There are also some worked examples to show students how to get to answers. The learning objectives and the associated links to the OCR A Level Physics A (H556) Specificaition covered through this resource are: Describe how we use the energy stored in a capacitor 6.1.2(c) Explain how to find the equations for energy stored on a capacitor 6.1.2(a)/6.1.2(b) [M3.8] Link equations together from the capacitors topic to answer more complex questions 6.1.2(b) NB: These specification links are correct at the point of uploading (22/08/17) and will be monitored for updates. The resources included are intended to be used in the following manner: - L3 Capacitors and Energy Storage.pptx (24 slides) This is the teaching resource and designed to be used as the front of classroom resource. This includes answers for student marking opportunities. Make sure that you go through the resource to see how the animations fit in with each of the slides. This resource is intended to last over 1-2 hours of teaching. - L2 Discharging a Capacitor Consolidated.pptx (17 slides) This resource is designed to be printed and provided to students as a students handout. All answers have been removed, and key pieces of informtion remain as to be a revision support. This does not have to be used. All resources are ready to use to teach, but can be adapted to fit other exam boards, specifications and order of teaching. Enjoy!
