GCSE Physics Structure Strips - Kinetic Theory and Density

GCSE Physics Structure Strips - Kinetic Theory and Density

As a teacher, one thing that I have always found is that students find extended answer questions either really easy or extremely difficult - there never seems to be a middle ground! To help, I have put some structure strips together for the GCSE physics course to support the students that really struggle with providing an extended answer. So far the feedback is that students love them as they really have helped these students become more independent in their study. There are 3 parts to this product: 1) The structure strips for 3 separate GCSE questions (one on density, one on changes of state and one on kinetic theory). These can be printed, cut and glued into students books (I have used pastel colours because of printing in black and white, but feel free to change this to liven it up!). 2) 2 copies of each of the questions with lines for students to write their answers on. Print these 2 to a page, and they can be glued next to the structure strips in an A4 book. 3) A WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like) with annotations to show students how they could further improve their answers if required. This can be used over a projector to show students, zooming in and moving around with a projector remote as a peer/self-assess exercise when marking answers. I have started putting this resource together for Atomic Structure and Radioactivity, and more will be in the pipework if people like them! Enjoy!

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Instrument Accuracy Pack

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Instrument Accuracy Pack

Internal Assessment Preparation Activity on Instrument Accuracies This activity is designed to help students determine and distinguish between different methods used to determine instrument accuracies of analogue and digital measuring devices they will encounter in their Internal Assessment (IA) activities. They should be encouraged to refer to this activity on a regular basis to help them complete the Results, Analysis and Conclusions (RAC) assessment criteria. This resource uses data examples from typical ESS activities. Document Length: 12 pages Duration: 1 - 2 lessons Includes: - Background information to help students correctly process and present instrument accuracies from different instrument types. - Worksheet exercise - Teacher notes (on duration, preparation, resources and considerations) - Answers to worksheet exercise

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Experimental Errors Pack

IB DP Environmental Systems & Societies - IA Preparation - Experimental Errors Pack

Internal Assessment Preparation Activity on Experimental Error This activity is designed to help students determine, distinguish between and process correctly the different types of experimental error they will encounter when sampling, collecting, recording and processing data for their Internal Assessment (IA). There are a variety of sources of errors that can occur when recording instrument readings contributing to uncertainties in processing data and resulting in drawing unreliable conclusions. These are defined either as human or experimental errors. Both need to be accounted for (measured) to help students determine the accuracy and reliability of your results. Document length: 16 pages Duration: 1 - 2 lessons Includes: - Background information to help students distinguish and assess the contribution of human and instrument error using data examples specifically from this course. - Worksheet exercise - Teacher notes (on duration, preparation, resources and considerations) - Answers to worksheet exercise

Waves and The Electromagnetic Spectrum Complete Unit Pupil Work Booklet

Waves and The Electromagnetic Spectrum Complete Unit Pupil Work Booklet

This pupil work booklet covers the entire topic of Waves and The Electromagnetic Spectrum. Suitable for the new GCSE Science Specification or as an Introduction to Physics booklet for Year 9. The pupil work booklet includes a range of activities to cover both the KS3 skills curriculum AND the new GCSE Double Award Science Waves specification. This is one of a whole series of pupil work booklets I have produced to cover all the content in the new GCSE Double Award Science (Physics) specification (2017). Due to the lack of resources availiable when I started teaching the new specification, I have put together a series of pupil work booklets to cover the whole GCSE specification. I have also used this as an introduction to GCSE Physics booklet with Year 9. This booklet covers the entire topic Waves and The Electromagnetic Spectrum' and includes a pupil work booklet for the entire unit. The resource includes a specification check list, glossary to fill in the key terms and definitions, activities to complete in class, homework tasks, revision notes, past paper questions, extended writing questions, problem tasks to cover the science skills aspect of the curriculum (such as 'Should WiFi be Banned? task), peer and self assessment tasks and additional notes pages for pupils to make their own notes or complete the tasks. The booklet is in PowerPoint so can be printed out to provide pupils with a hard copy, but can also then be used for class presentation using a projector. This also means they can be tweaked/added to/amended to suit your own classes/needs. Some of the topics covered include: -Wave Calculations -Wave Terminology -The Electromagnetic Spectrum Overview -Detailed look at the various regions of the E.M Spectrum Check out my other resources for other GCSE Physics pupil work booklets, covering the whole specification.
