This lesson covers:
- Stopping distances (definition and how to calculate)
- Investigation to factors affecting reaction time
- Factors that affect stopping distances
Pre-starter: code break keywords (decode sheets included in pp)
Starter: true or false quiz
Investigation: how are reactions times affected by distractions?
Assessment: peer-assessed worksheets, review of progress stars.
Plenary: create venn diagram.
Homework: create an infographic
To print before lesson: code breaker handouts, worksheets (high and low ability included with answers).
With the practical, let them do a few tests without recording data so they get used to the set up. This way, the results are better.
