#### revision activites for Additional Applied Science (AQA)

Different types of activities to help engage students in revision for additional applied science.
Odd one out - student choose the odd one out (ext - explain why its the odd one)
Beat the clock - students work in groups. One student from each group collects the first question. They all work together to get the right answer and one student brings the books to me to be marked. If all work is neat and correct they get the next question. It gets very competitive and very fun!
Pairs - better for smaller groups as you have to have a set of cards per pair/3. Students have all the cards face down and turn over 2 at a time to try to match a keyword with a definition. I put each set on different coloured card and kept them for this year.
Spot the mistake - underline the 5 mistakes. Ext - correct the mistakes.
Anymore questions or you need any answers email me at pentlandn@eehs.surrey.sch.uk

#### 'Lucky 'assembly

This was an assembly my form delivered on luck. The idea was that you make your own luck in this world and that you should work hard! We gave out chocolate gold coins at the end as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I also played The Lightning Seeds 'Lucky You' through the presentation - it lasts just the right amount of time!

#### Electromagnetic Spectrum and waves Comic Book Activity

Activity Length: 40 minutes<br />
Suitable for students of all abilities.<br />
This is a 3 part resource. The first is a comic book style text that introduces EM waves as being transverse and as waves of different lengths and frequency (there is an explanation as to what these terms mean). The second part is a user friendly worksheet, again in a comic book style, where students can use textbooks, video or internet to discover the uses, dangers, advantages, disadvantages, frequency and wavelengths of the spectrum.<br />
My students enjoy using the comic-book style textbooks, in particular my reluctant readers and dyslexic students, however, there should always be an alternative source information around, like a text book, to ensure that they are exposed to text of all types. <br />
The third is a powerpoint file of the comic book if you should wish to present it rather than printing it.<br />
The activity will challenge the higher abilities as they will be expected to apply their knowledge in a compare and contrast activity, while also being expected to produce work that shows a deeper understanding.<br />
Keywords: transverse wave, electromagnetic spectrum, light, communication, <br />

#### Revision using past paper questions

At this time of the year many students go through past papers to practise their examination skills. Over the years I have collected together questions that I have set for my students together with explanations of how to tackle the question. They are mainly for AQA as that was the syllabus I taught – but some are from different boards – selected to illustrate how to deal with a question type or topic that was not on the paper.<br />
<br />
There are two banks of questions:<br />
Multiple Choice: http://www.cyberphysics.co.uk/Q&A/KS5/indexKS5Q&A_MC.html<br />
Structured Questions: http://www.cyberphysics.co.uk/Q&A/KS5/indexKS5Q&A.html<br />
<br />
They can be used by a teacher in a variety of ways:<br />
Test/homework bank of questions<br />
Whiteboard demonstration – going through questions set for homework or in a test.<br />
Individual student work at revision stage for whole examination or end of a topic.<br />
