This double sided worksheet covers the basics of radioactive decay & half-life. I use this at the end of the topic to check student understanding, or as a revision resource prior to exams. The content included aligns with the AQA Combined Science (Trilogy) specification.
The first page includes questions on:
- Alpha, Beta, Gamma radiation sources.
- What is radioactive decay and half-life?
- A graph to complete (data provided) to work out the half-life of an element
The second page has example exam questions to encourage students to apply their knowledge more than just recall. There is space for students to answer the questions on the second page.
Print this off double sided and encourage students to self/peer assess their answers!
