Thank you for taking the time to view my premium resource. It is designed to provide you with a lesson in which pupil’s progress, the lessons follow a pathway; prepare for learning, lesson objectives, present new information, construct on that information, apply and demonstrate, review and consolidate.
Each individual lesson overview is presented below, however most of my premium resources follow the same format, which is:-
All power points to tell a story
Learning objectives clearly and uniquely visually linked, short, relevant and punchy, revised a minimum of 3 time a lesson.
Fun pictures all over to help tell the tale.
All slides plain black background font comic sans minimum 24 for contrast and easy to read at the back.
As many fun, creative and original practical’s built in to lessons as could be implemented.
All resources produced and stored for each lesson.
Practical instructions given along with prep room requests.
TEEP embedded, alongside philosophies from working with the Stimulating Physics program.
This resource will provide you with a great lesson and save you that precious commodity – time

A presentation suitable for KS4 looking at force, mass and acceleration. Presentation includes multi-choice questions to engage students and get them thinking about the subject throughout the presentation.
Learning Objective(s):
Look at the relationship between the acceleration of an object, its mass, and the force acting upon it.
Main Skills: Interpret written text and diagrams and perform calculations.
Duration: Approximately 45 mins
33 slides covering:
• Acceleration and Force
• Acceleration and Mass
• The Unbalanced Force Equation
• Types of Force
• Force of Gravity
• Spring Forces
• Push and Pull Forces

A highly detailed lesson presentation (31 slides) which shows students how to calculate resultant forces. Students are given the opportunity to discover how the resultant force is calculated before being provided with step by step guides on how to apply this to questions. The most difficult questions on this topic are also tackled, including the calculation of resultant force when forces are acting at an angle. The progress of the students is regularly checked throughout the lesson through a number of activities.
If you choose to download this lesson, it would be much appreciated if you would take just a few seconds to write a review so I can improve my practice and other teachers can see if this resource is right for them. Thank you in advance.

The main resources is a Power Point presentation that I prepared for a low ability group, which clearly explains the concepts of balanced force, unbalanced force and resultant force (Newton's first and second laws of motion).
The Power Point is good as a starter, plenary or a recap.
I used it as a recap at the start of a lesson, midway thorough teaching the Forces topic.
For the main lesson activity, the kids had to produce their own similar powerpoint slide, using further examples of balanced / unbalanced forces, and then present their slide to the rest of the class at the end of the lesson. (This is what the presentation document relates to). Differentiation was by extra teacher / TA input for the less able and the more able were given more complicated motion to describe in their Power Point slide.
The previous lesson, the class had used the Forces Simulator. The instructions I gave the class are on the Simulator Document,
Hope this is helpful - PLEASE leave feedback ;)
Thank you.

Designed for the new specification AQA GCSE( covers spec point 4.5.1.4 ) course but can be modified for other exam boards.
13 slides covering Resultant forces .
By the end of the powerpoint students would have covered:
Add labels to a diagram to show several forces acting on it.
Calculate resultant force produced by several forces acting on an object in coplanar directions.
Draw a scaled free-body force diagram showing forces as vectors and find the resultant force vector.

A mixture of resources I use for this unit. Some I have made and some have been reworked. All credits are given within the actual documents.
I have used a lot of resources from http://mrsimonporter.wikispaces.com/ that I have reworked to suit my style.
I cannot take any credit for this work and other resources that are reworked originals. All these are also credited within the documents themself.

The first lesson in a topic about Forces. This lesson introduces pupils to the main forces and asks them to label many examples. It also introduces concepts from GCSE to challenge the more able. A very engaging lesson with a well presented set of resources.

This resource is a lesson based on Turning forces which will fit into a Motion and Pressure module. The lesson is fully differentiated and allows for students to be challenged if necessary, as individuals with a feedback box on the main slides. Practical idea included.
Lesson objectives are as follows...
- Identify what a pivot is
- Describe the relationship between turning moments and force
- Explain the law of moments

A worksheet for pupils to practice drawing force diagrams, for objects with different motion.

Ks3 resource for measuring forces.
Introduction lesson to forces.
Newton meter practical using spring and hanging masses. Easy lesson taught a million times never not been good and engaging. Lesson 1 out of 8.
Included
- Lesson plan
- Detailed PowerPoint with animations. Also contains all answers to worksheets. (51 pages but contains all Worksheets).
- All worksheets, included starter, and main worksheet needed for practical and differentiated lower and higher ability.
- Three different plenaries
- Homework worksheet, with answers.
Aspects of National curriculum lesson covers (In varying detail):
• Gravity force, weight = mass x gravitational field strength (g), on Earth g=10 N/kg.
• Balanced forces and opposing forces and equilibrium: weight held by stretched spring.
• Forces as pushes or pulls, arising from the interaction between two objects.
• Forces measured in Newtons (N).
• Measurements of stretch or compression as force is changed.

AQA Science A P2 (pre 2011). This was what I used for revision of forces. It uses some slides from power points I got from the TES.

Bundle#### Forces resources

Some resources on the forces topic. Could be used for KS3 or GCSE.
This includes a Forces true/false introduction worksheet, a balancing forces worksheet, a rockets forces worksheet and a worksheet on the Weight equation in Space.

A couple of worksheets on balancing forces.
students label on the forces, and their names. They decide whether the forces are balanced, and if the object is accelerating.

KS2 posters revising key points of magnets, gravity, air resistance, forces & friction. (last 2 pages refer to interactive magnetism and friction activities that were part of my display). All answers to the question activities are on BBC Revisewise website. The first document is in Primary Sassoon but as not all computers have it the 2nd is in Kristen font. I would really appreciate it if you could please leave me some feedback as I am doing the GTP programme and am using this as my evidence!! Thank you! Topics also included: physical world.

Lesson 6/6: PPT to be used to teach gravity, weight and mass. Includes pupil questions, examples, definitions and videos showing weightlessness and walking on the Moon (click on green text). Includes calculations of weight on Earth, the Moon and Jupiter. If used please provide feedback to direct future resources. Thanks. Links to other lessons in the series below
