#### All About Energy: 7-page booklet of conceptual explanations and examples for A-level Mechanics 2

Designed specifically for the Mechanics 2 syllabus, but equally valid and useful for studying energy in A-level Physics, the booklet explains the key concepts that are so crucial and so often misunderstood:Force, Energy, PowerConservation of energyEnergy transfer examplesCommon types of energyHow much energy? (compare fuels, food and drink, lightning, AA batteries, etc...)Work done by a constant force (not necessarily acting in the direction of motion)Gravitational Potential EnergyKinetic EnergyWork done by variable forces (using integration)Elastic Potential Energy

#### AQA Mechanics 2 Past paper questions organised by topic

I have put this together for my students. I wanted regular practice and exposure to exam questions and also wanted to have something for my more able students to get their teeth into, hence the killer question(s) at the back of each homework sheet. We refer to the revision poster during our teaching, paying particular attention to the formulae and checklist associated with each topic. I give out the individual worksheets as homework to gauge their understanding and will give them the full booklet to aid their revision in the Summer term.Let me know how you intend to use it and how well received it has been please, I'm always keen to hear from others. Have you added to/amended my checklist? Please inform me through twitter, @billyads_47

#### AQA Mechanics 2 revision techniques

Have written this to assist my year 13s when answering past papers. I am trying to instil the correct techniques used for each type of question in order to assist students gaining method marks on the questions where they have 'no idea' what the examiner is asking.This really is my first draft, written to share and improve. My students haven't seen it yet. I have sent it to be colour copied onto A3 and we will discuss and edit it on Thursday.Please let me know your thoughts and how you have improved this to benefit your students. Best to contact me through Twitter, @billyads_47.
