Reaction Times Lesson Resources (GCSE Practical) - PowerPoint, Practical Sheet and more.
The resource is targeted at a GCSE required practical on the AQA scheme of work.

Contents include a PowerPoint of 9 slides, a foundation and higher level practical worksheet (differentiated around drawing the results table), a purpose made excel spreadsheet for recording class data for detailed analysis and a printable template you can stick on a metre rule to measure reaction time.

The PowerPoint includes a stimulus activity that recaps the nervous pathway and 3 slides outlining animal reaction times/speeds of response for comparison/stimulation of interest.

The practical sheet includes full instructions for students and some summary questions.

The excel spreadsheet is locked for editing aside from an area for students to complete in a central location (ie- projected onto the whiteboard) and will draw a graph complete with range bars based on average class data. The graph can be printed after the practical as required to allow more detailed analysis of class results.
