Hoppers Physics Graph pack 3: using different scales

Hoppers Physics Graph pack 3: using different scales

This graph pack works with the other two, also available on tes resources to teach the pupils how to use different scales. It starts with a simple bar graph, does an easy line graph and then works 7 more graph tasks with different scales. Helpful questions get the pupils to think about how to represent their data and there are some questions at the end to work through related to the graphs drawn previously. Excellent for cover, this stand alone pack needs no equipment. Also useful after other tasks in lessons, or when you just need an easy lesson at the end of a hard day. We use this with year 5 but would work well on both sides of this.

Basic circuits and series and parallel introduction

Basic circuits and series and parallel introduction

This is for pupils looking at circuits around year 7. It is suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance. It reviews/introduces basic circuit symbols and then has different circuits to make to compare the brightness of bulbs. A great way to get the pupils making their circuits accurately. They are then asked to find out about series and parallel circuits and classify the circuits in the experiment into these two groups. After that there are a couple of questions about the advantages of parallel circuits over series circuits.

Density questions

Density questions

This is a selection of questions about density. The first section covers the use of the density formula with some guidance on how to use any 2 of the 3 values to calculate the third. There is then space for some revision/summary notes on this. The second section tests experimental techniques and includes some calculations based on the measurements made in the experiment. This is linked to the Hoppers physics pack available free at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Hoppersphysics with the learning objective shown by each question noted in the question to allow students to look up the relevant work. This work is appropriate for KS3 or Common entrance. There are 8 pages of questions.
