KS3 Science: Bloodhound SSC Supersonic Car: Speed of Sound Investigation 11-14/KS3

KS3 Science: Bloodhound SSC Supersonic Car: Speed of Sound Investigation 11-14/KS3

Using the ‘real-life’ science of Bloodhound SSC a rocket and jet car capable of travelling 1000mph, we describe what the sound barrier is, show a video of our current land speed record car, Thrust SSC, breaking the sound barrier. we show how sound waves travel, how we measure speed, and plan an investigation using balloons, tape measure/ trundle wheel and stopwatches to investigate and calculate the speed of sound. **KS3: Curriculum links: ** Ask questions and develop a line of enquiry based on observations of the real world, alongside prior knowledge and experience. Make and record observations and measurements using a range of methods for different investigations; and evaluate the reliability of methods and suggest possible improvements. Apply mathematical concepts and calculate results. Use and derive simple equations and carry out appropriate. Speed and the quantitative relationship between average speed, distance and time (speed = distance ÷ time) The BLOODHOUND Project is a global Engineering Adventure, using a 1,000mph World Land Speed Record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Objectives Inspire the next generation about science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Share an iconic research and development programme with a global audience. Set a new World Land Speed Record of 1,000mph. Mission statement Create a unique, high-technology project, focused around a 1,000mph World Land Speed Record attempt. Share this Engineering Adventure with a global audience and inspire the next generation by bringing science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life in the most exciting way possible. Please promote our aspirations by sharing our resources, give us feedback, and make suggestions about other resources we could create. Please see our website, www.bloodhoundssc.com, to see more resources, bespoke videos, and news about the progress of our Engineering Adventure.

Notes and Examples for Edexcel A Level Maths Year 1 (Mechanics) Topic 3: Forces and Newton's Laws

Notes and Examples for Edexcel A Level Maths Year 1 (Mechanics) Topic 3: Forces and Newton's Laws

These notes and examples are designed for the delivery of the new Edexcel A Level Maths Linear Specification. You will receive an editable Word document that can be issued to students with gaps for them to fill in the solutions to the examples and make further notes. Full solutions to the examples are provided for the teacher in the form of a PDF document. This could be made available to students if they miss a lesson, reducing teacher workload. Each topic is available as a separate purchase, or you can download the entire set covering all the the Year 1 mechanics content.

Centripetal acceleration formula

Centripetal acceleration formula

A simple yet rigorous mathematical derivation of the centripetal acceleration formula, a=(v^2)/r, including that the direction is towards the centre of the circle. Use as a handout for A-level students who want to push themselves a little beyond the specification without getting out of their depth.

Key revision points for M1 Mechanics A-Level Maths

Key revision points for M1 Mechanics A-Level Maths

A collection of key points to remember for M1 Mechanics AS Maths/Further Maths. Prevents against silly mistakes and allows students to reach top marks! Possible mistakes collected from the questions and mark schemes from 20+ past papers. Relevant to M1 content: > Motion graphs > Velocity and acceleration > Displacement / position / distance > Distance and speed and time > Differentiation/integration > Bearings and angles > Unit vectors > Normal reaction > Free motion > Cartesian equations > Terminology - smooth, light, inextensible etc > Projectiles > Particles colliding > Force diagrams > Triangles of forces > Resolving forces Information divided into clear headings. Recommended for A-Level Maths students taking M1, especially relevant for OCR MEI exam board. An invaluable collection of points to have before an exam.
