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.
Energy transfer test 1
HoppersphysicsHoppersphysics

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
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.
And and OR circuit truth table worksheet
HoppersphysicsHoppersphysics

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!
Sound exam practice

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.
Life cycles and habitats revision test
HoppersphysicsHoppersphysics

Life cycles and habitats revision test

(0)
Testing pupils on a wide array of questions this is in two parts the first covering Life cycles, the second Habitats. The 7 characteristics of life, the life cycle of a flowering plant and a frog are covered, along with questions on pollination. In the second section pupils describe habitats, suggest habitats for different animal, use a key, a food web and draw a bar chart. Takes between 40 minutes and an hour.
Energy types and transfers test 2
HoppersphysicsHoppersphysics

Energy types and transfers test 2

(0)
A follow up to energy types and transfer test with questions on generators, fuels, skiing and Bunsen burners. There are also a couple of ‘draw a device that changes x energy into y and z energy’. The last question is about bungee jumping and asks candidates to calculate the size of GPE and use this and the kinetic energy formula to calculate a velocity. Suitable for KS 3, ISEB common entrance and scholarship candidates as well as basic GCSE review.
