Wave equation practice side-by-side

(0)
Great for initial work on the wave equation: pupils work down vertically filling in each column, following the same steps each time. They work up to completing a question requiring rearrangement and unit conversion.
Transverse and longitudinal waves and wave equation

Transverse and longitudinal waves and wave equation

(0)
A lesson comparing transverse and longitudinal waves. You will need a slinky for a demo (obviously!) Moving onto wave equation with worksheet provided. The first task requires the ‘word wheel’ to help the pupils structure their answers. Can be printed or on PPT. The wave equation task needs to be printed. Pupils use the side-by-side to practice questions, moving onto harder ones.

A lesson covering the basics of energy stores, transfers, power and work done. Designed for use with KS3 class but could be used with KS4 with some adjustments. The tarsia puzzle does have a joke question about Norwich City being the best football team, sorry!

Energy revision game! Find someone who can

(0)
‘Find someone who can’ activity for energy. designed as a revision resource for KS3 but could easily be used at KS4 or as an intro to energy in KS4. Pupils are not allowed to answer on their sheet, but must find other pupils to do it for them. They may only write on another person’s sheet once.

What is half life?

(0)
A KS4 lesson about the half life of radioactive isotopes. Worksheets from “half life challenge” on TES were used. Skittles practical (google it!) also used during lesson when taught myself but not needed.
