Memorise Equations for GCSE Physics
KitBMKitBM

Memorise Equations for GCSE Physics

(2)
This book is intended to help memorise the equations for AQA, Edexcel, OCR A&B and Eduqas GCSE Physics and combined science. The best way to memorise them is to use them! For each page there are three questions, the first is using the equation as it is, the second is a rearrangement, third is another rearrangement with at least one unit conversion. Send the students the PDF to keep on their phone as a flip book! Use the word document to remove equations for other exam boards if you like, or just send the equations for combined science to combined science students! I deliberately haven’t given the working for each question, just the answer, so that you can think through the problem and then check you’ve done the working correctly. I’ve deliberately left the maths simple enough to do in your head so that you can quickly work through the problems, hopefully that equation will eventually seep into that permanent area of your brain where all your song lyrics and film quotes are kept! Use this book instead of flash cards! So don’t just go through it once and then leave it! It’s meant to be flipped through time and time again until you know the equations and their units by heart!

Prepare for the Challenge of A Level Physics - Summer Project CGSE to A Level

(0)
Get a head start to A Level Physics! Three experiments that you can do at home to help you bridge the gap between GCSE and A Level Physics! This is designed to set your new A Level class as a project over the summer holidays to help them bridge the gap between GCSE and A Level. A Level Physics is one of the greatest academic challenges that there is, but you can succeed in it if, like anything else, you prepare well for it. These three experiments introduce you to some of the key ideas and techniques that you will need to be a success at A Level Physics. It is designed to be used over the summer between your GCSE exams and starting the A Level course, but could be completed at any time. Each experiment has an introduction, some video guidance, a method and instructions to analyse the results. There are then some questions to get you thinking about the topic and the answers so you can check that thinking. This would also be a useful study for anyone currently taking A Level Physics, or a similar level Physics qualification, or anyone aiming for one of the top grades in their GCSE Physics.
