A lesson (or potentially 2) focusing on reducing energy loss from domestic situations using forms of insulation. The PPT introduces typical types of insulation and learners then have opportunity to complete differentiated activities in explaining how double glazing, cavity wall and loft insulation etc. reduce heat transfer.
Learners are then introduced to the financial implications of deciding which is “best” and organically arrive at the pay back time equation. There is then a differentiated equation worksheet with markscheme.
The pack of activities includes;
Types of insulation differentiated activity
Payback time equation differentiated exercises
A collection of 5 short 10-15 mark diagnostic assessments with markschemes.
By undergoing low stakes assessment little and often every 3-4 lessons (~10 minutes per diagnostic) learners will develop exam technique.
Each diagnostic also includes a proforma for self/peer/teacher assessment to reflect on what went well and what could stand to be improved - with space to correct/repeat certain questions.
Under taking these assessments regularly will allow you to track your learners progress and for learners to approach end of topic tests with confidence .
Designed for AQA GCSE forces, however will be applicable to other exam boards and could be used for more able KS3 groups/student.
The slides introduce learners to the concept of how we record motion and how this will differ for varying speeds/changes in speed. Before allowing learners to discover and apply the rules of distance time graphs and then move onto worked calculations of extracting speed from distance time graphs.
The lesson finishes with a series of true/false questions to assess learning AFl.
