momentum - 1D and 2D and impulse

Presentations that show students how to use conservation of momentum and coefficient of restitution to solve both 1 Dimensional and 2 Dimensional problems.Also included is a presentation about impulseSMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource.

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.

Car Safety - Change in momentum

Car Safety - Change in momentum

Car pile up scenario. Pupils have to calculate the momentum of each vehicle, followed by the change in momentum, to calculate impact force. Finally, they have to use the numbers to conclude which driver would have come out worse off. Answers provided.

Exploring Momentum

Exploring Momentum

Given a low friction set of apparatus consisting of: a track, two carts, masses and if possible a speed/distance/time data logger. Our science department had all this stuff. Get students to explore the different thing and then use the second sheet for them to draw and explain what they have learnt in different situations.

M1 Revision Clock

M1 Revision Clock

This is a revision activity for Edexcel M1 based on the ideas shared on Jo Morgan's brilliant website http://www.resourceaholic.com/. This was originally shared here http://justmaths.co.uk/2015/10/18/keeping-time/.This activity could be used to help improve students' timing by giving them 5 minutes for each of the 12 questions, to improve memory, or simply to produce a visual revision resource.Each student should be given an A3 copy of the clock with a set of questions. Answers are provided.
