AQA GCSE Physics Required Practicals Summary

(1)
A no-nonesense student-friendly summary of the Physics Required Practicals for AQA GCSE Physics and GCSE Combined Science (Trilogy): Physics.  Perfect for consolidation after each practical and revision for the exams at the end. Please note that the black and white PPT thunbnail below is automatically generated by the TES website and are not actually what the slides look like – all the formatting has been lost. 😡
CAT scans (A-level Medical Physics)
Stu Billington

CAT scans (A-level Medical Physics)

(0)
One of six PowerPoint presentations for the Medical Physics unit of A-level OCR Physics A, matched to the Oxford OCR A-Level Physics A textbook. This PPT covers what a CAT scanner is and how it works. Please note that the TES software that produces thumbnail images doesn’t always seem to handle background images in PPT slides very well. If the thumbnails look odd on your display, that is not how they really look! Please take a look at the Ultrasound presentation instead.

GCSE Physics Equations Posters (low-res version for students' phones)

(4)
A set of four posters showing the Physics equations that students need to memorise for the GCSE Physics / GCSE Combined Science exams. These are presented as four small .jpg images suitable for students to put on their phones. Convince them to change their wallpaper?! A1 resolution print versions suitable for your classroom/corridor displays are also available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-physics-equations-posters-11832243

GCSE Physics Equations Posters

(0)
A set of four posters showing the Physics equations that students need to memorise for the GCSE Physics / GCSE Combined Science exams. The style is simple and clean and the posters can be printed up to A1 size without loss of quality, so students will be able to read them wherever they are sat in the room. Put a set in every lab and down the corridor outside, too! Or print and laminate A4/A3 copies and spread them on desks as placemats.

Nuclear Physics for A-level OCR Physics A

4 Resources
A collection of PowerPoint presentations covering A-level Nuclear Physics, primarily following the OCR Physics A specification and Chapters 24 and 26 of the Oxford A-level Physics for OCR A textbook.
Nuclear Energy for A-level Physics
Stu Billington

Nuclear Energy for A-level Physics

(0)
A PowerPoint presentation introducing A-level students to the concept of mass-energy equivalence, binding energy, fission and fusion. Following the OCR Physics A specification, but physics is physics, so suitable for all courses! One of a bundle of presentations on different aspects of nuclear physics. Please note that TES’s software doesn’t always seem to generate accurate thumbnail images of PPTs with background images, so if the preview images look odd on your display they aren’t indicative of what the slides actually look like.
Ultrasound (A-level Medical Physics)
Stu Billington

Ultrasound (A-level Medical Physics)

(0)
One of six PowerPoint presentations for the Medical Physics unit of A-level OCR Physics A, matched to the Oxford OCR A-Level Physics A textbook. This PPT covers the production and use of ultrasound. Please note that the TES software that produces thumbnail images doesn’t always seem to handle background images in PPT slides very well. If the thumbnails look odd on your display, that is not how they really look!
ELECTRICITY unit summary/checklist for AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy (Physics)

ELECTRICITY unit summary/checklist for AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy (Physics)

(0)
A summary of the AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy (Physics) "Electricity" topic, presented in a student-friendly and attractive form. Students can use it as a concise revision checklist or as a "what to expect" introduction. Teachers can use it as a more useful starting point than the original specification for writing a medium-term plan of the scheme of work for this topic. The order of the statements has been altered and the wording changed in places compared to the specification, to reflect how the concepts might be better taught and learnt. Required practicals and equations are emphasised and Higher Tier concepts are clearly highlighted.

A summary of the AQA GCSE Physics "Magnetism and Electromagnetism" topic, presented in a student-friendly and attractive form. Students can use it as a concise revision checklist or as a "what to expect" introduction. Teachers can use it as a more useful starting point than the original specification for writing a medium-term plan of the scheme of work for this topic. The order of the statements has been altered and the wording changed in places compared to the specification, to reflect how the concepts might be better taught and learnt. Required practicals and equations are emphasised and Higher Tier and Physics-only concepts are clearly highlighted.

PHYSICS SCHEME OF WORK STARTER PACK for AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy (Physics)
Stu Billington

PHYSICS SCHEME OF WORK STARTER PACK for AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy (Physics)

7 Resources
This starter pack breaks AQA's GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy (Physics) specification down into 6 coherent and logically ordered units. The specification statements have been ordered to reflect a pedagogically-sound sequence of delivery. Time allocations for delivery are indicated (presented as a useful 2-year long-term planner) so that the course spans approximately 100 lessons. The 20-lesson first unit is deliberately very accessible and is suitable for delivery in Year 9 if you wish to start KS4 early. This long-term planning stage is the necessary starting point for developing your own scheme of work that suits your context, students and teaching staff. With the long-term planning done, you can focus on medium- and short-term planning of the lessons themselves.

ENERGY/PARTICLES/FORCES unit summaries/checklists for AQA GCSE Physics

(0)
Summaries of the AQA GCSE Physics "Energy", "Particle model of matter" and "Forces" topics, presented in a student-friendly and attractive form. Students can use them as concise revision checklists or as "what to expect" introductions. Teachers can use them as a more useful starting point than the original specification for writing a medium-term plan of the scheme of work for these topics. The order of the statements has been altered and the wording changed in places compared to the specification, to reflect how the concepts might be better taught and learnt. In particular, some of the "Energy" and "Particles" topics have been relocated to the "Forces" topic, where they make more sense alongside related concepts. Required practicals and equations are emphasised and Higher Tier and Physics-only concepts are clearly highlighted.
