This resource includes PowerPoint presentations for the entire AQA GCSE Physics P4 Unit about Electricity. The topics covered include; charge, current, potential difference, resistance, IV characteristics, series and parallel circuits, LDRs, Thermistors, Static, Electric Fields, Domestic Electricity, Power, Energy Transfer and the National Grid. There are a series of cloze worksheets (answers on PPT) for lower ability classes.
Fibre Optics, Refraction, Snell's Law, Refractive Index, Critical Angle, Equation for critical angle, Total Internal Reflection, Cladding and Core Material, Advantages of Cladding, Refractive Index of Cladding, Endoscopy and how Endoscopes work.
This resource was designed to be used in conjunction with Cambridge IGCE Physics unit 'remote sensing'. The content relates to X-Rays and CAT scans. It could be used for any A Level Physics course that incorporates X-Rays.
What is Cancer, Cobalt-60 source, Energy delivery, External Beam Radiotherapy, Rotating source and focal point, avoiding vital organs, side effects (general, specific and sexual), Gamma Knife Surgery, Side effects, Proton Beam therapy, advantages and disadvantages, and side effects
What is a laser, what is light, Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, Uses of lasers, Types of Laser, Laser surgery, Advantages over a traditional scalpel, Human Eye, Laser Eye Surgery, Complications from laser eye surgery, Lasers in cosmetic dermatology.
Radiopharmaceuticals, technetium-99m, Iodine-123, production methods (cyclotrons and nuclide separation), effective half life, bone scans, thyroid scans, doses of common nuclear medicine techniques, risk versus benefit, and gamma ray cameras.
This resource is designed for the Turning Points in Physics topic in AQA GCE Physics. It is the second lesson in the series and describes how the specific charge of an electron can be determined in the school laboratory with deflection methods using a fine beam tube. The resource then describes Millikan’s determination of the electron charge with his oil drop experiment.
Infra-red radiation, wave equation, sources of IR and surfaces, space blankets and hypothermia, non-medical uses of IR, thermography and screening for breast cancer, dangers of IR, mammography and screening for breast cancer, advantages and disadvantages of thermography and mammography.
The facts about drugs, alcohol and tobacco. The physical and psychological effects of abusing these substances. The risks of addiction. The long term effects on physical and mental heath. The impact on individual and society.
These resources are designed to go with the AQA GCE Physics topic ‘Turning Points in Physics’. The resources cover Crooke’s discharge tubes and JJ Thompson’s hypothesis of the electron. The PPT also covers thermionic emission and introductory mathematics for the determination of specific charge.
This resource was designed to be used in conjunction with Cambridge IGCE Physics unit 'remote sensing'. The content relates to MRI scans. It could be used for any A Level Physics course that incorporates MRI.
What is Pressure, Pressure equation, low pressure, high pressure, gas pressure, particles, balanced pressure, collapsing bottle, atmospheric pressure, pressure and altitude, pressure in water, equation for pressure in water, and upthrust caused by pressure difference. A worksheet (cloze activity) is included about the Titanic disaster and forces on the ship.
This presentation supports the delivery of the Level 3 BTEC Unit 16 Astronomy and Space Science. It covers the design of earth based telescopes: refractors and reflectors. The advantages and disadvantages of each. A summary is given of various earth based telescopes in different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum as well as gravity waves.
What is Cancer, External Beam Radiotherapy, Cobalt-60, Rotating Source, Focal Point, Avoiding Vital Organs, General side effects, specific side effects, sexual side effects, Brachytherapy (radioactive implants), Different radioactive sources, Selecting the right source, Radioactive Seeds (Prostate Cancer), Applicators (Cervical Cancer), Radioactive Wires (Breast Cancer) and Radioactive beads in circulatory system (Liver Cancer), Advantages and Disadvantages.
This resource contains seven lectures (lessons) about character development based on the book by David Brooks called ‘The Road to Character’. Each lecture focuses on a different aspect of character development with particular reference to a historical figure from the ‘Great Generation’ (born pre-1940)in the United States;
The Summoned Self - Frances Perkins
Self Examination - Dorothy Day
Self Conquest - Dwight Eisenhower
Self Respect - Asa Philip Randolph
Self Mastery - George Marshall
Self Determination - Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan
Big Self and Little Self - Johnny Unitas and Joe Namath
The lectures focus on how different people developed through their early life, college career, working life and their life achievement. The key is the dedication of their lives to humble service and not self glory and how they have impacted the world. These lectures were developed for a Year 8 lecture series.
