I am currently a Lecturer in Engineering Design at a University, prior to this I worked in secondary schools as a specialist physics teacher. My experience from working at these levels of education has emphasised the need to ensure fundamentals in science are mastered by students for continued success in education & beyond. My resources aim to clearly communicate complex scientific principles through clear visuals and explanations - with well structured tasks to practice what has been learnt.

#### GCSE AQA Physics - P4.5 - Series Circuits

(1)
GCSE AQA Physics lesson on Series Circuits using key content from AQA exam specification. The starter for the lesson revisits models as a way of helping to explain principles of electric circuits. The model used is a simple model which you can do as a class activity or a class demo by simply using string with dots spotted around the string. This helps to summarise key terms before moving onto series circuit rules. The string model is then used to help pupils explain key series circuit rules which are summarised. The main uses a circuit experiment requiring the pupils to build 6 different simple circuits using ammeters and voltmeters, results can be drawn with circuit diagrams. (Support sheet included for pupils that may struggle drawing circuits). Plenary uses a series of questions to apply pupil knowledge of series circuit rules. Lesson Objectives: 1) Review key words for the electricity topic. (D) 2) Explain the current and potential difference rule for series circuits. (C) 3) Investigate current and potential difference in series circuits. (B) 4) Apply the series circuit rule to problems. (A) Note: This lesson is formatted is similar content to previously listed 'Series Circuits' but in the new Nteach style and also with new content relevant to the new specification for AQA GCSE Physics. The lesson will be updated as all lessons are as I create new , engaging and challenging content relevant to the subject.

#### GCSE AQA Physics - P2.1 - Energy Transfer by Conduction

(3)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on 'Energy Transfer by Conduction' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Choice of two different starters to prompt discussion of heat transfer by conduction. Either looking at cooking using rods through meat or placing ice on different materials to melt. A series of scenarios are shown involving heat conduction which allow pupils to discuss why things feel hot or cold. A class experiment is provided which uses different material rods to identify which one conducts heat quickest. The results of this are then discussed with questions to start promoting good scientific investigation skills. Thermal conductivity is explored by looking at the meaning of each words separately and then together. Pupils are then to put a number of different material in order of thermal conductivity, which is then discussed for common materials which are highly conductive or poorly conductive. This leads onto thermal insulation and some final review questions. Lesson Objectives: 1) Provide definitions for conductors and insulators. 2) Identify common conductors and insulators and explain in relation to thermal conductivity. 3) Relate thermal conductivity to rate of energy transfer. 4) Explain ways in which rate of heat transfer can be reduced.

#### GCSE AQA Physics - 10.6 - Impact Forces

(4)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on Impact Forces written in line with new AQA Physics specification. All questions provided with answers within power point. Starter ‘Car Wars’ looks at the test collision between an old and a new vehicle to stimulate discussion of collisions and safety - posing the question which car is safer and why? This is discussed and reviewed focusing on crumple zones and comparing how each car crumpled and why this is good (or for the old car, bad). Crumple zones, air bags and seat belts are detailed and discussed for common function - to increase impact time to decrease impact force. This concept is highlighted by exploring the physics mathematically. Review questions with answers are provided for the topic. Lesson Objectives: - Identify key safety features of vehicles to reduce impact force. - Explain how ‘impact time’ affects impact force. - Relate momentum to impact forces in collisions and explain how impact forces can be reduced in car collisions. - Calculate impact forces resulting from collisions.

#### GCSE AQA Physics - Resolution of Forces - Parallelogram/Geometric Method

(7)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on ' Resolution of Forces' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. All questions provided with answers within power point. The starter provides some simple combination of forces questions to review the subject of resultant forces - one question has two forces acting on different planes which pupils will be unfamiliar with and therefore how to solve - this prompts the lesson. The intuitive resultant force and direction is highlighted but also how we need to calculate exactly what they are. The parallelogram/geometric method is taught step by step with a worked example, this is done a second time with another example but with the class prompted to follow it and do the same on their own paper which also allows for discussion of difference in results. A collection of questions allows pupils to practice use of this method. This method is then used for inclined planes to explain frictional force acting to put object in equilibrium on inclined planes. Review questions again allow pupils to practice this. Lesson Objectives: - Review resolving simple combination of forces. - Identify when forces are acting on different lines/planes. - Calculate the resultant force on an object which has equal forces acting on different lines/planes. - Calculate the resultant force on an object which has unequal forces acting on different lines/planes. A worksheet is not provided as it is best for pupils to work on their own paper to define their own scales for this methodology.

#### GCSE AQA Physics - 10.1 - Force and acceleration F=ma (Newtons Second law)

(4)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on 'Newtons Second Law - Force and Accerlation' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Starter prompts pupils to discuss how there weight would vary on different planets, this is to set-up how weight is different to mass. Key terms Force, mass and acceleration are reviewed for clarity leading to the equation F=ma, the units, how it can be rearranged and then review questions to practice the use of. The equation is then reviewed in terms of proportionality as required by the AQA specification. Following this F=ma is related to W=mg to highlight that weight is a force and different to mass. This then leads to pupils calculating their mass on different planets - alternatively a task is provided to calculate the mass of a schoolbag on different planets. For higher tier pupils intertial mass is explained. Learning Objectives: - Clearly explain what force, mass and acceleration are. - Relate how mass and acceleration effect the size of a force. - Calculate the resultant force on an object by its mass and acceleration. - Explain the difference between weight and mass. - What is meant by inertia (Higher Tier)
