Ohmic and Non-ohmic resistors

(0)
This lesson is in the form of a powerpoint presentation for senior physics with short student tasks. In the presentation students will be able to Determine the difference between ohmic and non/ohmic conductors and Describe the effect of temperature on resistance.
Dichotomous Keys and classification
doctorharvesdoctorharves

Dichotomous Keys and classification

(0)
The presentation and associated activities are designed to introduce the classification of living things and also so we as scientists classify organisms using keys. Designed as an introduction for juniors the presentation included a series of activities which can be done individually or in groups.
Rates of Reaction
doctorharvesdoctorharves

Rates of Reaction

(0)
This activity is divided into 4 parts each activity involved one of the components of rates of reactions - size, concentration, temperature and catalysts. The activity involves graphing data and then explaining the plot using rates of reaction theory. Students graph data and then apply this information to collision theory to explain observed data. The activity also includes hint sheets to assist students.
Rates of reactions exercises
doctorharvesdoctorharves

Rates of reactions exercises

(0)
This resource is designed to practise graphing skills and data analysis around chemistry rates of reactions. Also designed to develop student understanding of results obtained using collision theory. The exercise consists of activities where students develop understanding of the 4 different ways to change rates of reaction - concentration, temperature, catalysts and surface area.
Vectors and Scalars

Rate of reaction trading cards
doctorharvesdoctorharves

Rate of reaction trading cards

(0)
Excellent revision tool for rates of reaction. In pairs, students cut out both sides of the cards and glue them together. Then as one asks the question the other tries to answer it. If you get an answer right, you keep the card. The one with the most cards wins! Designed for KS4 Chemistry.

How to use a bunsen burner
doctorharvesdoctorharves

How to use a bunsen burner

(0)
The presentation is to be done over two lessons. The first lesson goes over lab safety with an activity involving finding potential dangers in the lab. The next lesson involves the use of a bunsen burner to test for metals. The latter lesson involves students getting a bunsen burner drivers license by following safety steps. Once attained they test solid salt samples by the flame test. The other activity includes labelling the bunsen burner and using terms in sentences to reinforce learning. The learning objectives for both lessons are outlined in the presentation.
Forces revision game
doctorharvesdoctorharves

Forces revision game

(0)
This is a useful revision resource around forces and Newtons equations of motion. The activity consists of students cutting out and creating a series of cards. The students then work in groups of 3 - 4 to attempt to compete the task set on the cards. The fastest group wins. The task is 'I have, who has' Each card has a definition (I have) and also a question (who has) one student reads out a question (who has) and other students respond with the answer (I have) based on what cards they have in front of them. If the answer is correct then they read out the question on their card. The game is completed when all definitions are answered by the group.
