multiple choice KS3 physics test

(0)
covering forces, energy types, density, pressure and circuits. This is a pdf and a publisher file, you will have to add your own diagrams to the publisher file. I laminate these questions and then get an answer sheet from Zipgrade.com. This will mark it as fast as your phone can scan it and show you scores student by student or question by question. Great for targeting feed back.
Famous physicists display
HoppersphysicsHoppersphysics

Famous physicists display

(0)
Display with 11 famous scientists mainly involved with Physics! From Archimedes through Galileo, Hook, Newton, and on to Einstein. Very handy when teaching displacement etc so you can refer to the scientist. These posters have their historical dates and a brief Bio. Can be used as a frieze around a classroom. The other file has some historical occurrences you can put in between the scientists to get some historical context.

Sound exam practice

(0)
This sound worksheet contains questions that cover the common entrance and KS 3 or middle school syllabus. It includes work on pitch, frequency and amplitude as well as how these can be altered for a harp. There is also a question on sonar containing that trick examiners love about the distance away something is when there is an echo involved as well as a question on the how far away a thunderstorm is.

Circuits end of topic test

(0)
Covering the key points for the Common entrance, KS 3 and middle school circuits work with circuit symbols, truth tables current in series and parallel circuits, line graphing and various components there is something here to stretch everyone while making sure the basics are in place as well. There is a graduated differentiation task as the last question to allow pupils to choose their level of challenge. Will last around 30 minutes.

Density and pressure homework

(0)
This is a selection of questions on density and pressure at a ks 3, common entrance level. It contains both calculations and questions about experiments into working out the pressure of a block, density of a block, density of a liquid and an irregular object. There is a harder public school scholarship question at the end. This resource is a word file and is editable.

Light research

(0)
Internet research questions to go with Key stage 3, common entrance and middle school work on Light. This covers the electromagnetic spectrum, lenses and telescopes as well as the speed of light in different mediums. There are also questions on the structure of the eye and the role of different parts of it. The task usually takes 30 to 40 minutes and can be set to do at home, where internet access is available as well as in lessons. Both pdf and word documents available here.

KS3 physics colouring!

(0)
YOu know that time of term when you need something which will work their brains but not look too much like work and give you some time to mark books etc?? Well look no further. These KS3 questions will give you that! They answer the questions and use the answer to colour the correct square in the grid. IT should spell Happy Xmas but what letter has been missed out?

HoppersphysicsHoppersphysics

15 Density and pressure multiple choice questions

(1)
covering use of the density and pressure formulae, one or two tricks like the man at a party when you are given the area of one of his feet and the calculation of an area and a volume. A nice quick start to a lesson, easy to peer mark or do from the board.

Moments pack for ks3 or common entrance

(0)
This is a pupil pack for moments at a ks3 or common entrance levels. It covers what moments are, how they are useful to us and how we can calculate balance in moment situations. It includes 2 experiments as well the theoretical work. There is also a PDF version Thoughts, suggestions, comments? email hoppersphysics@sky.com

Pressure pupils work packfor common entrance and KS3

(0)
This is a pack that covers pressure and includes examples of things made to have a high and a low pressure, experiments into the pressure made by a rectangular block and by a pupil in different positions, sitting, standing and on the floor. Also includes graduated differentiation questions allowing the pupils to find their own level of challenge. We are afraid you have to provide your own lab equipment! (and pupils.....) There is also a user guide for you to get the most out of your pack. This is a publisher file so editable and a PDF version. Thoughts, comments or suggestions to hoppersphysics@sky.com
voltage, resistance and current investigation
HoppersphysicsHoppersphysics

voltage, resistance and current investigation

(0)
An introduction into current in a circuit and the way changing the resistance and voltage in a circuit changes the current. There is space to define voltage and resistance, an investigation using resistance wire, space to draw a graph and then an investigation into current around a series circuit. This is all in one 4 page handout. The fifth page has graduated differentiation questions to use with the graph from the resistance wire experiment with walk, jog and run questions to get every pupil stretched to their current level of ability. Suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance.

Hoppers Physics graph pack 1: Bar chart drawing investigations

(0)
This pack contains 6 different bar graph drawing activities and some other activities with questions on graphs. Suitable for around year 3 they will work on counting different shapes (the shapes to work with are provided) different coloured shapes as well measuring width, volume (of liquids) and mass (although you can just provide numbers for them to use. They will also work on giving graphs a heading and axes labels. Perfect for cover, to do after an experiment or other task. Full instructions on the first page.
