#### BTEC Engineering / Maths M1 Mechanics / Physics

Starter looking at statics - resolving forces - note only one slide / question

#### The Physics of Harry Potter Mechanics Activity

A worksheet on Mechanics using extracts from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Questions test students understanding of force, SUVAT equations, projectiles and conservation of energy in an (almost!) real life situation.

#### AS Mechanics Connected Particles

A presentation I use to help students come to terms with connected particles problems.The presentation starts with basic principles and builds to more complex problems. Several examples are included.Please add a review if you find this useful.

#### Connected Objects (M1)

A nice powerpoint covering force diagrams of objects that are connected

#### Resolving forces

Horizontal and vertical components, components parallel to and perpendicular to a plane

#### Mechanics 1 (Edexcel) Revision

Here is my power point trying to structure questions for M1 from past papers. I have split the paper into 6 sections and tried to group questions together. For use by giving to pupils and leaving them to it, or working through topics as a class. Every question from 2006-present. Also works extremely well on iPads.

#### Differentiated equilibrium questions

Mixed questions on equilibrium, 3 easy, 2 medium and 2 hard with answers on the back.

#### Introduction to Equilibrium

Lesson 1 on equilibrium with practice questions resolving forces.

#### Newton's Laws of Motion - PPT Lesson

A power point introducing Newton’s Laws of Motion with examples. Ideal to be used as part of a lesson on the IWB. Suitable for Post 16 M1 students.

#### Think poster for Classroom Displays

A beautiful and meaningful poster encouraging students to think about what they are saying, thus creating a safe and positive classroom environment.

#### Vectors and scalars

A lesson made for 6th form but I have used with year 10 and year 11 and it has worked well.The starter is a recap for my Y11s so is probably not relevant!***keep TES resources free!***

#### Advanced Higher Mechanics Notes (Linear and Parabolic Motion)

Notes for the Linear and Parabolic Motion Unit for the new Advanced Higher Mechanics course. Notes broken down into 4 topics: Rectilinear Motion; Relative Motion in 2D and 3D; Projectile Motion; Forces and Newton's Laws. Definitions, theorems and worked examples included.

#### Forces Introduction

A power point on the different types of forces pupils come across in M1.

#### Friction Powerpoint

My first attempt at a powerpoint for M1. I hope you enjoy.

#### Forces at a point

Drawing diagrams, forces in equilibrium

#### Newton's Laws in Vertical Motion - M1 - PPT

A power point on using Newton’s Laws in vertical motion ideal for M1 students. A clear introduction with good challenging example questions. Suitable to be taught as part of a lesson on the IWB.

#### Resolving Forces

A question where resolving forces are required to find the unknown quantities

#### Inclined Plane Model

Inclined plane, friction, motion, forces It is an interactive model of an object on an inclined plane. You can model various situations with or without friction and you can involve an additional force to act upon the object. There is a slider called t that can animate how the object is moving 200m up or down the slope. If t -slider disappears when you change different variables like mass, coefficient of friction, angle of slope etc. that means the object cannot move due to a friction and if friction vector disappears that means the object will fly off.

#### Maths A Levels Mechanics: F=ma revision song.

A levels maths mechanics video f=ma resolve friction song karaoke forces newton. Great material to help memorise related to Mechanics laws and formulas.

#### Resolving Forces 2

A second sheet where resolving forces are requires to find the unknown quantities

#### Friction - An Introduction

A comprehensive introduction to the topic of friction with notes and examples to fill in.

#### Resolving Vectors

A tutorial on how to find the individual components that make up a vector.

#### Friction - Exam Revision PowerPoint - M1

Complete Power Point with examples for exam revision of Mechanics 1.

#### Friction with vertical and horizontal forces LOOP

A simple, pretty, marble-effect loop to enable discussion about liniting and non-limiting friction. Useful for non-physicists in particular.

#### Friction

Coefficient of friction, limiting equilibrium
