Fundamental Particles Card Game A-level Physics

(1)
Plays by the same rules as popular children's card game "Top Trumps". I use this to introduce the particles topic at A-level. Can't recommend this enough - it turns particles into a favourite topic. Make up a whole class set and students will accidentally learn loads. My students like to keep the cards on the desk for the first few lessons to help familiarise themselves.

Making your own game should take about five minutes. A bonus matching pairs pictures template is included so you can include pictures and diagrams in your games. Nineteen exemplar Matching Pairs Games are included with editing enabled to let you customise them. Updated April 2015 to contain a one player timer and improved feedback to responses. There are many free examples of Matching Pairs Games to try before you buy. Please visit my shop; https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/bennyjohn5 bennyjohn5@hotmail.com

A really strong collection of resources for teaching circular motion at A-level. I think even teachers who have been presenting this topic for decades will find some exciting ideas here. The main presentation is animated with full notes and also contains links to film clips. It contains a careful derivation of the loop the loop treatment. There are two documents with exam-style questions both written and multiple choice. These contain fully worked answers. The “quickfire game” is an engaging recap race using questions on slips of paper.
