Physics and Maths Tutor

This is a starter and plenary activity designed for KS4 (but could be adapted for other levels) that covers estimation, orders of magnitude and standard form.
As a starter, ask the students to use estimation to order the cards according to their value.
As a plenary, use the next set of cards to have the students work out the value of each card and check their original estimation.
This might be useful in GCSE Maths, GCSE Biology, GCSE Chemistry, or GCSE Physics and also Maths skills lessons.

Extend and challenge your students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills with this session on Fermi Estimation.
Perfect for GCSE, A level, Adult Education, or even upper KS3 students, this smart and engaging PowerPoint presentation and accompanying worksheet, contain everything you need to get your students started with Fermi Estimation.
Ideal for an end of term activity or enrichment session. These questions are also sometimes used in university or job interviews, so it is an excellent skill for your students to learn.

Student booklet includes: topic checklist, knowledge collection, skills practice questions, exam-style questions, and self reflection
Teacher booklet includes: information and guidance, topic reflection, and answers to all the questions.
This complete workbook is an excellent resource to go alongside your teaching of the Probability topic, or for revision.
Reviews are greatly appreciated :)

A complete set of revision summary sheets for Edexcel IGCSE Science Physics. Each sheet has space for students to write down key definitions and equations for:
Forces and Motion
Electricity
Waves
Energy
Solids, Liquids, and Gases

My students like doing these at the end of a topic before a topic test, however you could also use them for revision at the end of the year.
Completed examples of all the sheets are also included.
Reviews are always appreciated! :)

A set of worksheets covering the GCSE Maths topic of Surds. Includes questions on simplifying, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, expanding brackets, and rationalising the denominator.
