iGCSE Physics Equations and iGCSE Physics Formulae with their Units all on one page

iGCSE Physics Equations and iGCSE Physics Formulae with their Units all on one page

Hello everyone! I made this page for all iGCSE scientists for their Physics exams. The resource includes all the formulae and equations needed for Paper 1 and Paper 2, and also includes the UNITS that students need to learn. I wasn’t able to find anything suitable for the new scheme, so I borrowed a layout idea from a previously available resource on here and made my own page from scratch. Included in the download you’ll get the colour version and the black and white version. The charge is just a small donation to the shop - TES takes all but 30p, so a bargain for the hours of effort I’ve put in here to make this. Enjoy it - I hope it helps you!

Circuit calculations (in series and parallel)

Circuit calculations (in series and parallel)

A detailed lesson presentation which guides students through calculating the current, potential difference and resistance in series and parallel circuits. The lesson begins by challenging the students to recognise whether three displayed facts relate to series or parallel circuits. Students are then given a chance to remind themselves of the differences between the circuits in terms of these three physical factors. The rest of the lesson uses a step-by-step guide format to show the students how to work through a circuit calculation by combining their knowledge of the circuit with application of the V = IR equation. Progress checks have been written throughout the lesson so that students can constantly assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students

AQA Combined Science Trilogy: 6.5-6.7 Paper 2 Physics Quiz

AQA Combined Science Trilogy: 6.5-6.7 Paper 2 Physics Quiz

Want to quickly and easily review a chapter of the AQA Combined Science Trilogy specification? Want to be able to lead pupils to a targeted revision list to enable them to close their gaps? This revision resource consists of a range of questions across the specific specification points. There are a minimum of two questions per spec code. The specification document has been closely used to guarantee the correct use of terminology and phrasing. This leads to pupils then self-marking after each sub topic. This will consist of them marking and noting the identified spec code in a WWW or EBI list. Once the quiz is completed they will then follow the instructions to create their own personalised review of the full quiz and self-generate their personalised revision list by specification name using the supplied list. This activity is 1-2 lessons per quiz depending on the depth of revision time you allow the pupils though these tasks can be class or homework. Lesson plan included.

Stopping distances

Stopping distances

A fully-resourced lesson that looks at the meaning of thinking, braking and stopping distances and focuses on the factors that would cause each of them to increase. The lesson includes an engaging lesson presentation (45 slides) and an associated worksheet for the calculations. The lesson begins by introducing the term stopping distance and then challenging students to recognise that both the distance travelled during the driver’s reaction time and under the braking force will contribute to this. Students are constantly challenged to think about the factors that would cause either the thinking or braking distance to increase and to be able to explain why scientifically. Moving forwards, the mathematical element that is associated with this topic is explored as students are shown how to calculate the braking distance at different speeds as well as convert between speeds in miles per hour and metres per second. There is also a set homework included as part of the lesson. There are regular progress checks written into the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been written for GCSE students but could be used with those at KS3.

Inspiring interest in radio communications

Inspiring interest in radio communications

SDRplay provide a “software defined radio” (SDR) which turns a Raspberry Pi or PC into a full communications receiver capable of picking up radio signals across the spectrum from long waves to microwaves. All you need is the SDR and a simple antenna which is often just a length of wire. This simple tutorial can help a class pick up signals for themselves: https://youtu.be/JvP8t8aPmRw and this inspiring video shows how a class can pick up actual pictures from the International Space Station (first the class can practice on other signals and when they are ready, they can time their listening for when the ISS is transmitting pictures and passing overhead. See: https://youtu.be/vRwH0FlH9MA Potentially SDRplay can lend a school an RSP1A, or they can be bought with educational discount by emailing jon.hudson@sdrplay.com (SDRplay co-founder)

Christmas Science

Christmas Science

A selection of Christmas themed Science lessons, including designing and testing hand warmers for Santa and turning pennies into gold. Most of these resources are my own, some ideas and resources have been borrowed from others. However, I have pooled resources to make a bank of Christmas themed science lessons, so science can be taught right up until the end of term.

Science Quiz Template (Sample Questions, Auto Timed, Easy to Change)

Science Quiz Template (Sample Questions, Auto Timed, Easy to Change)

This is a resource that I created for my KS3 classes to revise topics and lead fun quizzes. The quiz is easily changed to suit the requirement for the lesson and I find that the format works well. Student’s play ‘rounds’ and each question is automatically displayed for a set period of time before the next question, I have found this holds the pace of the quiz well and engages students. The timings for each question can be easily changed or removed in the ‘transitions tab’. This resource comes with a sample of questions set already and the accompanying ‘team worksheet’.

Fortnite Revision Lesson

Fortnite Revision Lesson

Teacher Notes: This is designed to be a revision/end of year lesson. The aim of the game is to collect as much loot as possible and at the end of the game sell it for as many Vbucks (Fortnite currency) as possible. All you are required to do is add questions on slide 5, 6, 7, 8 and the supply drop questions. You can prepare as many ’knock’ questions as you wish.
