5 minute Seating Planner

A 5 MINUTE SEATING PLANNER in excel which also displays the pupil data. Watch demo on youtube to see planner and how to use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e4HN80mdbg You are able to import data from another excel spreadsheet to use as data to include in your seating plan. Coloured cells are automatically populated with pupil names and the data which you wish to display. The coloured cells can be moved to create the plan of the room and therefore the seating plan. Data fields can be filtered help produce seating plans based input variables (for example, filtered by target grade). Cells used a colour scale which can be set to the data you wish to use, for example above, at or below class average grade. This creates a teacher seating plan (data) view and a class (just names) seating plan view .

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).
