Space travel problems and difficulties, gravity, temperature, oxygen, cosmic radiation. Full lesson.

Space travel problems and difficulties, gravity, temperature, oxygen, cosmic radiation. Full lesson.

Complete lesson looking at the difficulties associated with space travel, how they can be overcome and NASA's project to launch a manned mission to mars. This 18 slide lesson contains: theory, questions, answers, paired work, gap fill, carefully selected video, literacy, high quality images throughout etc. Good lesson and great value for money. Objectives: 1) To understand some of the problems with putting people into space. 2) Explain how these problems can be overcome. 3) Form your own opinion on whether it is worth sending people to mars. PLEASE NOTE: The preview images are poor (this is an issue with the tes preview creator software) but the PowerPoint images themselves are all good. Best wishes, Jack Wiseman

Physics OCR GCSE Equation Question Generator (trillions of equations!)

Physics OCR GCSE Equation Question Generator (trillions of equations!)

This spreadsheet allows to autogenerate 900 or so equation questions by pressing F9. Each equation has a six sheet x five question format. You can adjust whether prefix adjustment and/or rearranging are required. Also, there is a random sheet which you can set to all equations or just some. Frankly, if you are physics teacher, you would be stark raving mad not to download this.

GCSE Science / Physics / (AQA P7) Microphone (Lesson plan & PowerPoint)

GCSE Science / Physics / (AQA P7) Microphone (Lesson plan & PowerPoint)

This is a lesson and PowerPoint explaining how a microphone works. This is the seventh lesson in the Electromagnetism unit of work (P7). The lesson covers the basic idea of a dynamic microphone and how it functions. The lesson then extends to optional work on reading oscilloscope traces and utilises the wave equation for an example. Ideas for differentiation and homework also included in lesson plan as well as the equipment list for a recommended investigation and demonstration using tuning forks on an oscilloscope.

Eclipse, eclipses, solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, umbra, penumbra, total and partial. Complete lesson

High quality, complete and ready to use lesson. For use in KS3 and for lower and middle ability groups in KS4. ‘‘ECLIPSES’’ - STUDENT OUTCOMES: By the end of the lesson students will be able to: * Understand new key words such as eclipse, umbra, penumbra etc. * Understand what solar and lunar eclipses are. * Be able to explain what happens during a solar and lunar eclipse * Be able to draw diagrams of a solar and a lunar eclipse. STARTER Pupils will start the lessons by thinking and working in pairs and doing a mini quiz. After discussion of the answers this leads on to revealing the title and lesson outcomes, students then self assess their current understanding of what this lesson is going to cover. MAIN and MAIN and MAIN.... This lesson is chunked into discrete sections to support learning and engender positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. All points of the specification are addressed. There are various student activities such as: practical, gap fill, carefully selected videos, paired work, literacy activities, focused questions with answers and differentiation, SMSC, quiz, homework, self-assessment and peer assessment opportunities etc. This good variety of activities keeps pupils focused and happily learning. PLENARY: In the plenary activity pupils complete an activity then peer assess it to uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. They then self-assess themselves against the lesson outcomes. Students who need further support set themselves additional homework to enhance learning of today’s lesson. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES: These are provided just in case any group requires them. COMPLETE AND READY TO USE: All resources are included in this excellent lesson, there is nothing for you but order the practical kit and deliver the lesson.
