I am currently a Lecturer in Engineering Design at a University, prior to this I worked in secondary schools as a specialist physics teacher. My experience from working at these levels of education has emphasised the need to ensure fundamentals in science are mastered by students for continued success in education & beyond. My resources aim to clearly communicate complex scientific principles through clear visuals and explanations - with well structured tasks to practice what has been learnt.

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.

Lesson Objectives:
- 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?

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?

I needed to get a cover lesson for a member of the department, and found this power point. It is fantastic. Would highly recommend
