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 Physics P1 - Electromagnetic Spectrum

(3)
Complete lesson on Electromagnetic Spectrum/Uses/Risks with key content from AQA Physics. This lesson covers the electromagnetic spectrum, waves uses, wave risk, order and size of waves and mobile risks. Starter uses a fun riddle challenge which pupils enjoyed doing in Generating Electricity and so asked for another. The lesson explores the spectrum by order of identities of waves, wavelength, frequency and energy. A quick task on multipliers, standard form and prefixes helps pupils understand the notation commonly seen on the EM spectrum and also as questioned in exams. A task gets pupils to explore different EM waves using information sheet for them to use to summarise key information. Then mobile phone risk is then discussed along with correlation and causation. Plenary quick quiz and some exam style questions which can be used as mini plenaries to link to exams. More lessons in same format for P1. https://www.tes.com/member/Nteach

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)

2 New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on 'Infrared Radiation & Black body radiation' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Bundled together is 2 complete lessons on infra-red radiation with different learning objectives and activities. LESSON 1 - Infrared radiation and black body radiation Lesson starts with optical illusion which makes white dots appear black, this is to start thoughts on what black is and engage students with something a bit different. The difference between heat and temperature is discussed to lead to what infrared radiation is. A question posed about whether ice gives off infrared radiation consolidates a key point. Thermal imaging is explored with how it works and a guess what it is exercise of infrared images. Different shades of black are shown to discuss what black does in terms of visible light, leading to an explanation of perfect black body radiation. Black body radiation and infrared emission at varied temperatures is discussed (including a link to a useful simulation). The effect of absorption and emission of infrared on bodies is detailed concluding with summary question on the topic. Lesson Objectives: State the difference between heat and infra-red radiation. Explain what is meant by ‘black-body radiation’. Identify the effects of infra-red radiation can have on a body. Relate the effects of absorption and emission of infra-red radiation has on a body. LESSON 2 - Infrared radiation, surfaces and bodies The use of black balls on the LA reservoir is shown in gif images to pupils to discuss why they did this. Absorption and emission of infrared is reviewed briefly. This leads to factors which effect the Earth's temperature and how greenhouse gases impact this. An experiment to investigate different surfaces and infrared emission, absorption and reflection is outlined. The key points from this investigation are summarised for note taking. A true or false activity reviews previous content followed by review questions. Infrared emission, absorption and reflection is applied through questioning to the Earth & the moon, satellites in space and the starter on the LA reservoir. Lesson Objectives: Identify and explain key factors that effect the temperature of the Earth. Investigate and identify the properties of different materials and their effect on infra-red radiation. Apply your knowledge of infrared radiation and surfaces to real life problems. Explain why the temperature on the Moon is different to the Earth.

GCSE AQA Physics - P6.4 Internal Energy

(7)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on 'Internal Energy' written in line with new AQA Physics specification. Lesson Outline: Starter discussed whether a glass of water has energy of not to see what conclusions pupils can draw on this from previous lessons. This leads to a view of a substance on a microscopic scale to highlight that the particles are moving, therefore pupils should be able to deduce must have energy in order to move. Internal energy is then shown to be this energy in substance due to kinetic energy and potential energy. After revisiting the starter how to increase internal energy is discussed The different states of matter are review again but now in relation to internal energy with helpful graphics to support these points. How much energy in a substance is related to specific heat capacity which is typically covered earlier in the course so this provides a great opportunity to review of this topic. Lesson concludes with review questions. Lesson Objectives: - Explain what is meant by internal energy. - Identify and explain how you can increase internal energy. - Relate internal energy to properties of solids, liquids and gases. - Explain how particles in a gas exert a pressure.

A worksheet to help pupils design/plan their own experiment/investigation. Some pupils still struggle with the intention of science experiments and each aspect required to carry out a successful experiment. The worksheet which is the same format as the experiment planning sheet poses each aspect as a question for pupils to really think what each aspect is about. This can be used as sheet to complete with a guided experiment allowing pupils to understand what each part of planned experiment is about or it can be used as a guide to help a pupil design an experiment (with some guidance of course)
