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

(5)
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

NteachNteach

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 - Scalars and Vectors (+ Forces)
NteachNteach

GCSE AQA Physics - Scalars and Vectors (+ Forces)

(8)
New AQA GCSE lesson on Scalars and Vectors (+ Forces) written in line with new GCSE AQA specification. All questions provided with answers within power point. Starter asks how far away a school is from a home - this prompts responses from pupils that either follow the road or straight across the field. This introduces the idea of distance and displacement which is explained in detail. This is also used to explain magnitude, scalars and vectors. A series of questions review pupils understanding of distance and displacement. A quick class activity reviews a number of different variables to classify each as scalar or vector. Speed and Velocity are identified as a scalar and vector by reviewing the equations and then also related to acceleration. This leads to force the representation of force vectors and scale diagrams. A quick review of forces and different types of forces lead to force interactions and their effects. A set of review questions provides use of force vectors. Lesson Objectives: - Explain how displacement and distance are different. - Identify and explain scalar and vector quantities. - Identify different types of forces and how these can be represented. - Explain what the effect of simple force interactions will have on objects.
