FULL booklet for all Scientific method work you will ever need!

This is a 44+ page booklet with all you need to go through the scientific method. It has Notes, theory, examples, questions, review tasks, graphs, tables, conclusions and everything in between! I have made this for my Yr 9 students as an introduction from middle school but would work equally well with Yr8 and even Yr 10 students dependent upon ability. Covers scientific method-hypothesis and prediction-variables from basic IV/DV/CV as well as discrete and continuous-method writing and evaluation-results table design and use with anomolies and averages-graphing including bar charts and line graphs-conclusions and ext work on describing graphs (DO be careful on formatting it is all set up for my ICT system but may need little tweak for different versions of word) Enjoy

OCR Physics Revision Mat 9-1 (Pgs 1 - 23)

Hi all! This is a revision mat I created to help my students summarise their work bit by bit to try to keep them on top of the enormous content of the new 9-1 2016 curriculum. Hopefully it will help with revision as it is a great little activity. I contains a mixture of diagrams, calculations, questions, definitions, formulae that are needed and a touch of fun. I will be adding further resources as I create them, this one goes up to page 23 of the OCR textbook. Keep me posted on how it goes! :-)
