# Advanced mechanics teaching resources: Kinematics

Resources and ideas for mathematics, advanced mechanics, kinematics, written by teachers to support teaching and learning

#### 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.

#### M3 Mathematics (Edexcel AQA) A Level Posters - Further Kinematics

1 Poster for A Level Mathematics students taking the M3 exam - posters help students memorise difficult formulae and information that is required for the exam. A large proportion of students are visual learners, this means bright colours, bold diagrams, and image repetition will help when studying. Enclosed is a poster for Edexcel A Level Mathematics M3, with cross-connections with most other boards including AQA.The posters are A4 documents, split into boxes with bold colourful information in each. They are well used scattered around a room or the house, so constant viewing of the posters will help you remember the information that in on them. This is a technique that I have passed on to help many students through GCSE and A level.The topic included is: Kinematics (Alternative Acceleration Equations)

#### 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&amp;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 - &quot;metacognition&quot; or something!Please let me know what you think :)

#### 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.

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.

#### A-level Physics top resources

These are all my published resources for teaching A-level Physics. There are some really fun and engaging activities. Worked answers are always given to question sheets.

#### 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.

#### SUVAT Uniform acceleration formula

Lesson 1 introducing the uniform acceleration formulae including a starter on speed, distance time and example problems.

#### 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.

#### Velocity and acceleration functions

Power Point presentation, 10 slides, Explaining how to use the derivative of displacement to calculate the instantaneous velocity. How to use the derivative of velocity to calculate the instantaneous acceleration, based on IB Mathematics Standard Level Syllabus.

#### A level Maths Mechanics: Velocity-time worksheet

Kinematics, velocity-time graphs

#### 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; &quot;Edexcel AS and A level Modular Mathematics M1&quot;, 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.
