SUVAT Equation practise tasks

SUVAT Equation practise tasks

This resource is in the form of a powerpoint which works through various problems involving applying the SUVAT equations. Designed with AS physics in mind the tasks are designed for the class to work through each problem.

Mechanics - Kinematics. Powerpoint.

Mechanics - Kinematics (constant acceleration) Useful with GCSE and A level to explore the SUVAT equations.1. Worksheet deriving kinematics equations of motion under constant acceleration, using speed / time graphs.(correction made - 16/12/2010 - there was a typo at the bottom of the page - thanks to those that pointed this out).2. Powerpoint presentation deriving the equations of motion under a constant acceleration.

SUVAT equations - Kinematics

SUVAT equations - Kinematics

A real-life link lesson introducing the SUVAT equations, meanings of letters, learning to select the correct equation for the question, and rearranging to solve. Uses popular car data to see relevant applications in real-life. Includes a starter on Speed = Distance / Time, diagnostic questions using RAG&White, examples and practice, then Nando's themed differentiated questions (with answers) and a literacy plenary to write to their future selves what mistakes to avoid and to explain in their own words - "metacognition" or something!Please let me know what you think :)

Uniform acceleration Maths /Mechanics model answers  to A level edexcel M1 book , Ex. 2A and 2B.

Uniform acceleration Maths /Mechanics model answers to A level edexcel M1 book , Ex. 2A and 2B.

Unlike the number and unit answer given at the back of the book; "Edexcel AS and A level Modular Mathematics M1", this resource gives a full method and a diagram to help students interpret the question in the context of the equations of motion under uniform acceleration. Buy it, and copy it to give to students for self assessment and reflection. Ideal for teacher cover work or independent study periods. keep checking the shop for similar resources for all other Exercises in the text book.Some answers differ in the significant figures given.

Velocity-Time graphs

Velocity-Time graphs

This power point has a series of worked examples to demonstrate how students can find the distance traveled or the acceleration of an object by means of finding the (approximate) area under the curve or the gradient of the tangent drawn to the curve.

Mechanics 1 (Edexcel) Revision

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.
