Density questionsQuick View

Density questions

This is a selection of questions about density. The first section covers the use of the density formula with some guidance on how to use any 2 of the 3 values to calculate the third. There is then space for some revision/summary notes on this. The second section tests experimental techniques and includes some calculations based on the measurements made in the experiment. This is linked to the Hoppers physics pack available free at with the learning objective shown by each question noted in the question to allow students to look up the relevant work. This work is appropriate for KS3 or Common entrance. There are 8 pages of questions.
And and OR circuit truth table worksheetQuick View

And and OR circuit truth table worksheet

A introduction to AND and OR circuits suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance with the truth tables leading the pupils to understand the names of the two types of circuit. There is then a graduated differentiation task which is given on the third page of the file with walk, jog and run task based on truth tables. You can do this as an experimental activity or a thinking one!
voltage, resistance and current investigationQuick View

voltage, resistance and current investigation

An introduction into current in a circuit and the way changing the resistance and voltage in a circuit changes the current. There is space to define voltage and resistance, an investigation using resistance wire, space to draw a graph and then an investigation into current around a series circuit. This is all in one 4 page handout. The fifth page has graduated differentiation questions to use with the graph from the resistance wire experiment with walk, jog and run questions to get every pupil stretched to their current level of ability. Suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance.

Basic circuits and series and parallel introductionQuick View

Basic circuits and series and parallel introduction

This is for pupils looking at circuits around year 7. It is suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance. It reviews/introduces basic circuit symbols and then has different circuits to make to compare the brightness of bulbs. A great way to get the pupils making their circuits accurately. They are then asked to find out about series and parallel circuits and classify the circuits in the experiment into these two groups. After that there are a couple of questions about the advantages of parallel circuits over series circuits.
