OCR A Level Physics - Unit 2: Fundamentals of Physics

OCR A Level Physics - Unit 2: Fundamentals of Physics

The 4 resources that are a part of this bundle cover all of the specification points for the OCR A Level specification for Unit 2 - the fundamentals of physics. In total, the lessons should cover about 10-15 hours of teaching time, depending on the ability of your students. Each of the resources are differentiated, and include answers to all of the questions.

Scalar and Vector quantities

Scalar and Vector quantities

This is a differentiated resoure is aimed at teachers and tutors that are delivering the OCR A Level Physics course. This lesson covers Unit 2: Scalar and Vector quantities. 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 additional practice questions provided to give students extra practice on these areas if required. The learning objectives and the associated links to the OCR A Level Physics A (H556) Specificaition covered through this resource are: Describe the difference between a scalar and a vector quantity 2.3.1(a) Explain how to combine vector quantities by addition, subtraction and vector triangles. 2.3.1(b)/2.3.1(c) [M0.6, M4.2, M4.4] Link your understanding of vectors to solve problems using vectors and trigonometry. 2.3.1(d) [M0.6, M4.5] Additionally, this resource can be used in the introduction of projectile motion in the kinematics unit. 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: - L4 Scalar and Vector quantities.pptx (62 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 2-4 hours of teaching. - L4 Scalar and Vector quantities Consolidated.pptx (25 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!
