New AQA GCSE lesson on Scalars and Vectors (+ Forces) written in line with new GCSE AQA specification. All questions provided with answers within power point.
Starter asks how far away a school is from a home - this prompts responses from pupils that either follow the road or straight across the field. This introduces the idea of distance and displacement which is explained in detail. This is also used to explain magnitude, scalars and vectors. A series of questions review pupils understanding of distance and displacement.
A quick class activity reviews a number of different variables to classify each as scalar or vector.
Speed and Velocity are identified as a scalar and vector by reviewing the equations and then also related to acceleration. This leads to force the representation of force vectors and scale diagrams.
A quick review of forces and different types of forces lead to force interactions and their effects. A set of review questions provides use of force vectors.
- Explain how displacement and distance are different.
- Identify and explain scalar and vector quantities.
- Identify different types of forces and how these can be represented.
- Explain what the effect of simple force interactions will have on objects.

Excellent resource. Will be buying more. When will the waves units be completed?
Dear Shanjo, thank you. The waves unit is available now, as individual lessons and as a bundle. Nteach
wonderful resource. Accurate and informative and the power points do not look boring. very engaging. thank you. Will you be releasing a bundle on Waves/EM spectrum and a chapter on Electromagnetism at all?
Dear AnnisAraim, I appreciate your feedback and am always looking to make engaging resources for teachers to work with. I am close to completing the waves unit so this will be available soon. Thank you, Nteach
first thing i have bought on TES, well worth it!
Dear AndyPV, very pleased to hear that this resource was useful to you. I do my best to make sure I provide only high quality resources worth purchase and if I ever fall below this I look to feedback to meet expectations. Hope you continue to discover quality resources which give you valuable time back. Thank you, Nteach
I needed to get a cover lesson for a member of the department, and found this power point. It is fantastic. Would highly recommend
Dear Kelly, really pleased to receive your feedback and hear that your were able to download 'n' teach. Thank you, Nteach
