voltage, resistance and current investigation
Hoppersphysics

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.

Basic circuits multiple choice test

(0)
This is a set of 20 multiple choice questions covering electricity, circuit symbols, series and parallel circuits, basic reading of an ammeter and prediction of the brightness of bulb in different circuits and 3 truth tables to fill out. It is easy to peer asses and suits the requirements for KS3 and Common entrance as well as a basic start for GCSE. Also suitable for middle school
15 Density and pressure multiple choice questions
Hoppersphysics

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.
Energy transfer test 1
Hoppersphysics

Energy transfer test 1

(1)
A sequence of little experiments (although this does not have to be an experimental activity) you can use to asses the pupils ability to spot the different energies involved in some unusual transfers. Suitable for KS3, ISEB common entrance and middle school. Find more energy transfer work at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Hoppersphysics
Famous physicists display
Hoppersphysics

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.
And and OR circuit truth table worksheet
Hoppersphysics

And and OR circuit truth table worksheet

(0)
A introduction to AND and OR circuits suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance with the truth tables leading the pupils to understand the names of the two types of circuit. There is then a graduated differentiation task which is given on the third page of the file with walk, jog and run task based on truth tables. You can do this as an experimental activity or a thinking one!
Circuit design problems test
Hoppersphysics

Circuit design problems test

(0)
Having tested the pupils knowledge of the different components symbols this test then gets them to use the components to solve various problems such as how to make a light switch on in a dark room as dawn comes up outside. (LDR). This is suitable for Common Entrance and KS3.
Light research

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.

Density pupils pack for KS3 and common entrance

(0)
This is a handout to give to pupils while you work through density for Common entrance or ks3 with the different learning objectives and skills they will use clearly shown. Covering how to find the density of a block, a liquid and an irregular solid as well as what density is and floating as a density rule. There are graduated differentiation tasks included to help those who need more reinforcement as well as those who need stretching. Sorry you will have to provide your own lab equipment!
