Powerpoint for a two part lesson on pendulums, including a VERY exciting Christmas Lectures video I found called 'Swinging Ball of Death', guidance for the practical, tidy up time, units plenary/starter, graph guidance, evaluation and a level 7 stretch (replotting with T squared and calculating the gradient). Also a fun plenary video I found that's a nice alternative to Barton&'s pendula.

    Excellent and free! :D

    I had to provide a scaffold for the practical and alter the timer as my students wouldn't have known what it was going to do but no other alteration was necessary.
