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

(6)
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 - 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 - P2.2-3 - Infrared Radiation & Black body radiation (2 lessons)

(6)
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- P10.3 - Forces and Braking

(2)
New GCSE AQA Physics lesson on Forces and Braking written in line with new AQA Physics specification. All questions are provided with answer within the Power Point. Lesson starts by discussing the speed limit for vehicles against the maximum speeds vehicles can achieve. Stopping distances is explored by looking at different size vehicles going at the same velocity and then braking. Stopping distance is also reviewed against different velocities. Thinking distance and braking distance are highlighted and discussed with a class activity exploring the effects of different factors on thinking distance with higher or lower activity. A class activity is also provided to investigate pupils reaction time to relate to thinking distance. A quick review on resultant forces in relation to vehicles is explored through questioning, this leads to the physics of stopping vehicles through braking. This leads to an exploration of the physics of braking in terms of changes to energy stores and then also how to calculate braking force. Summary questions are provided on this topic to finish the lesson. Plenary poses the starting question again in light of new information pupils will now have. Lesson Objectives: - Evaluate different vehicle speeds for stopping distances - Explain what happens during braking of a vehicle. - Identify and explain what can effect the stopping distance of a vehicle. - Investigate how a drivers reaction time effect stopping distance. - Calculate the braking force of a required for moving vehicles.

Design an Experiment worksheet

(3)
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)
