This lesson covers:
- Hooke’s law (concept and equation)
- Investigation in to stretching springs
- Plotting graphs
Pre-starter: code-break the keywords
Starter: Discussion about applying knowledge of springs to other areas of physics
Assessment: questions in power point, extension worksheet, graph plotting task and homework.
Extension sheet: stretching springs questions
Homework: analysing a bungee jump exam style question
To print before lesson: code breaker sheets (in pp), homework sheets, practical sheets and extension worksheets.
This was originally taught to low ability, so the graph-plotting segment is very carefully laid out step by step. I have found a lot of success for those students who have struggled to plot graphs in the past. To aim this at a higher ability, substitute this section for the extension worksheet.
