Solving equations using balancing posters

Solving equations using balancing posters

Students often complain that solving equations is difficult. But as a teacher, you know this skill is essential! These posters are designed to explain simple methods of solving mathematical equations in various different, but common forms. Put them on your classroom walls to help all students solve equations and reinforce those straightforward equation solving methods.

History of science, Reactivity series, Universal indicator and EM spectrum horizontal posters

History of science, Reactivity series, Universal indicator and EM spectrum horizontal posters

A series of four posters to decorate a science laboratory or classroom. Three posters (Reactivity series, Universal indicator and EM spectrum) remind classes of key areas of science and what they should look like. Although simple, these posters do lay out the key orders all science students have to learn and provide them with a constant reminder which can be referred to in areas dealing with these specific aspects of science. The fourth (Scientists timeline), provides inspiration for students to see where science has come from and where they could take it in the future. It's useful in discussing the ebb and flow of scientific thought over thousands of years. How different ideas have been spread around the globe and the relatively recent acceleration of scientific progress. All posters are designed to be laid out horizontally, to form friezes around a classroom.

Physics GCSE Changes in Energy lesson for AQA specification

Physics GCSE Changes in Energy lesson for AQA specification

These resources are meant for teachers of AQA Physics GCSE for first teaching in September 2016. They are a complete set of resources for the second lesson on Energy in the AQA GCSE Physics specification (8463) and specifically meet the requirements of section 4.1.1.2 Changes in Energy. The lesson plan included, outlines how this lesson is intended to be used and the resources accompanying it. The presentation is designed to meet three objectives with outcomes; To calculate the energy of a moving object; to calculate the energy of a stretched spring and; to calculate the energy of an object above ground level It contains internal hyperlinks to reach sections supporting the objectives and to refer back to relevant sections of the slide show. The notes section of the presentation also gives some guidance on sections and individual slides. The accompanying worksheets are note taking and calculation practice worksheets, differentiated to meet three levels of prior ability with answer sheets as well. There are also two types of word puzzles and a keyword and definition sheet to support literacy and Physics learning. They are two crosswords to support higher ability students and a word search to support lower ability students. The keyword sheet can be used to support free learning, for students to develop their own questions and answers.

Physics GCSE Energy stores and systems lesson for AQA specification

Physics GCSE Energy stores and systems lesson for AQA specification

These resources are meant for teachers of AQA Physics GCSE for first teaching in September 2016. They are a complete set of resources for the first lesson on Energy in the AQA GCSE Physics specification (8463) and specifically meet the requirements of section 4.1.1.1 Energy stores and systems. The lesson plan included outlines how this lesson is intended to be used and the resources accompanying it. The presentation is designed to meet three objectives with outcomes; To define a system, To explain how energy is stored and changed in systems and to outline the types of energy involved in this unit. It contains hyperlinks, both internally to reach sections supporting objectives and externally to "Youtube" videos supporting each section of learning. The notes section of the presentation also gives some guidance on sections and individual slides. The accompanying worksheets are note taking worksheets, differentiated to meet three levels of prior ability. There are also two word puzzles and a keyword and definition sheet to support literacy and Physics learning. They are a crossword to support higher ability students and a word search to support lower ability students. The keyword sheet can be used to support free learning, for students to develop their own questions and answers.
