Practical Science Careers project

Practical Science Careers project

(1)
A series of 8 practical activities, put into the context of careers in Science. This is aimed at KS3 students, introducing some practical skills. Aims of the project: To learn about some careers in Science, and to try some out. To develop investigation skills as required in the KS4 core practical’s included at GCSE. Students get to experience being an Aerospace engineer by designing and testing paper planes, a Biochemist by testing urine samples, a Biomedical scientist by testing different anti bacterial soaps, a Chemical engineer by investigating recipes for bouncy balls, a Civil engineer by designing and testing bridges, a Forensic scientist by taking and analysing finger prints, a Mechanical engineer by making cotton reel motors, and a Pyrotechnic technician, by testing firework colours and making sparklers. Each includes a job profile page to be filled out using the national careers service website to provide context for the lesson. Also included is a handy technician guide. This is designed to be handed out as a student booklet, with each career taking around 2 single hour lessons to complete, aimed at KS3 students. Students develop their investigation skills, as well as learning about some different careers in Science.
Uncertainty in experiments

Uncertainty in experiments

(1)
A summary of the Section 1 - Measurements and Their Errors topic on the AQA Physics A-level course. Content will apply across different exam boards and includes the following: SI Units Calculating Uncertainty using precision Calculating Uncertainty using range Calculating Uncertainty using worst line of best fit. Combining uncertainties. Each includes some practice questions, and the answers are included int eh comment box in PPT. I used this as part of revision in preparation for A level exams.
Bitesize Forces/motion revision - Speed, velocity, acceleration

Bitesize Forces/motion revision - Speed, velocity, acceleration

(0)
This is a worksheet in a series made to summarise and recap topics from GCSE Physics. All worksheets are based on BBC bitesize pages with the same name, with a QR code to guide students to the correct page. All the answers to the front page can be found there. There is then a 15 mark exam-style question to test their new knowledge. Every worksheet in the series is out of 15 so students can track their progress. I've used them with year 11, and set them as homework, that way they are forced to revise early! This is designed to help revise for the Edexcel iGCSE in Physics, but is fairly universal and should fit with any exam board. Includes PDFs for easy printing, and word documents for editing.

Hubble's law and the Redshift equation

Hubble's law and the Redshift equation

(0)
A worksheet allowing pupils to calculate recessional velocity using the change in wavelength of spectral lines from stars. This focuses on using the v/c = change in wavelength / wavelength equation. After answering the 5 questions, pupils can conclude that the more distant the galaxy, the faster it is moving, which makes a great introduction to redshift and the Big Bang Theory. There is an extension task to plot the recessional velocity against distance, calculate Hubble’s constant and calculate the age of the Universe. If calculated correctly, pupils should conclude that the Universe is 13.8 billion years old. Answers included. The extension task is a great way to stretch and challenge the most able at GCSE, while the main task allows weaker pupils to practice using the Doppler shift redshift equation. This could also act as a nice task for A-level pupils, studying Hubble’s law.

phUNO - the A-level Physics definition card game

(1)
Basically the same as the card game with a similar name, but this time, to play a card, you must correctly define the term on the card. Forces students to learn their definitions. Works well as a revision activity game, or as a Christmas or Summer activity! Just print, laminate and cut. Includes Answer sheet. The cards are also split into Year 12 and Year 13 definitions based on the AQA Physics spec, but these could easily be ignored. I've also included an editable version.
