iGCSE Edexcel 9-1 Biology Chemistry Physics Chpt 1&2 Revision Mat Broadsheet Bundle

This is a bundle of A3 summary sheets I made for my students using the Pearson iGCSE Student book: the questions in each box inspire students to summarise the work that they need to know for this section. This resource includes the first two chapters of each of the Biology (Section A: Life Processes and The Variety of Living Organisms) and Chemistry (Section A: Kinetic Theory, Diffusion, Atomic Structure) topics, and Chapters 1 and 2 of the Physics topic (Movement and postion and Forces and Shape). I am gradually adding the other Chapters as I go along. I would print each of these topics on an A3 sheet double sided, so that the same topic is on a double-sided sheet. It would also be good to pop each sheet onto a double-sided coloured A3 sheet, then you can make each topic (Bio/Chem/Physics) a different colour to easily refer to them in class.

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. Enjoy it - I hope it helps you!

Drawing ray diagrams

Created for a high ability Year 10 class. A ‘cheat sheet’ containing the rules for drawing ray diagrams.

Diodes

A concise lesson presentation that focuses on the key details that students need to know about diodes for the GCSE examinations. The lesson begins by introducing the idea that diodes only allow current to flow in one direction. Moving forwards, time is taken to go through the potential difference vs current graph in 3 parts so that students can explain how the diode functions. Moving forwards, students will meet a LED and then in the style commonly associated with the 6 mark exam question, they are challenged to use data in a table to compare the effectiveness of a LED against other light bulbs.

Life cycle of a star

An engaging lesson presentation that runs the lesson in a quiz format, with numerous rounds, in order to introduce the students to the different stages of the life cycle of a star. The lesson begins by introducing students to the first three stages (nebula, protostar, main sequence) which all stars go through regardless of their mass. Key details about each stage are discussed and considered. Moving forwards, this lesson ensures that students understand that the stages after the main sequence are dependent upon the mass of the star. Key links are made to associated topics such as nuclear fusion. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used with KS3 students if they are doing a project on space and stars

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

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

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.
