Worksheet for KS3 or KS4 to practice drawing energy transfer diagrams. Questions start simple and get gradually harder, and incorporate energy pathways and stores. Suitable for lower ability to support, or higher ability as lots of practice.
Worksheet for KS4 students (middle to high ability), where students can practice rearranging and using the equation V = E/Q, as well as reinforce Q=It which should have been taught previously. Questions become progressively harder and begin to link in other skills. Solutions are included on a separate sheet for pupils to mark afterwards.
Simple velocity time graphs where pupils practice reading graphs, calculating gradients and distance travelled by finding the area under a graph. Accompanying power point allows you to go through with pupils after activity.
Worksheet where students calculate the mean of a set of data, then apply skills to a scientific context. Students are given an experiment and then asked to identify variables, calculate averages of the data, plot a graph and interpret the experiment. Suitable for KS3 classes.
Differentiated worksheet where students have to first identify definitions of latent heats of fusion and vaporisation and SHC, then identify whether energy will be given out or taken in in state changes. Finally differentiated equation grid where students practice using initially the SLH equation, then combining with the SHC equation to calculate energy changes for more complex systems. Suitable for any ability KS4.
Students practise plotting line graphs of data: task builds slowly from plotting points and drawing best fit lines, to constructing scales and using appropriate labels on axes. Final page tests graph interpretation, and question 3 can be adapted to suit your syllabus and your area.
Has worked extremely well with KS3 and weak KS4 pupils in maths and science lessons.
Fully differentiated KS4 grid with many questions on the different electricity equations. Each question is worth a different number of points and pupils can work at their level. Comes with challenge and extension questions. Suitable for any KS4 ability group, perfect for a homework or revision lesson.
Differentiated worksheet where students practise using and rearranging Q=It, equation to calculate charge flowing in a circuit. All answers provided. Extension tasks are provided to stretch upper end of class, while earlier questions provide lots of repetition with calculations.
KS4 scaffolded 6 mark question on terminal velocity, includes key words and sentence starters to guide pupils on structuring their answer. Perfect for Y10s doing forces who are not yet experienced at 6 mark question. Mark scheme on powerpoint slide gives pupils opportunity to peer mark work and give improvements.
Fully differentiated KS4 equation grid with lots of questions about KE, GPE and energy transfers. Different questions are worth different numbers of points, pupils choose questions appropriate for their level. Good for homeworks: have to earn 15 points to pass or similar. In lessons excellent practice, includes mark scheme which can be put on board, pupils self mark then hands up to gauge number of points for each student.
Fully differentiated KS4 worksheet for using momentum and impuse equations. Each level of question is worth a different number of points, pupils work at their own level. Mark scheme included, pupils can self mark and assess by asking how many points everyone in the class got.
Worksheet to accompany a computer room lesson / to complete as homework. Pupils create circuits using an online simulation, then measure P.D and current to identify circuit rules for themselves. Questions at the bottom test what they have learnt. A very good alternative to tricky (and often faulty) electricity practical work, or for a revision lesson.
An A4 revision sheet for AQA Physics P6 module, with various different activities to be completed on the sheet and in books. Activities have levels next to them for pupils to self-differentiate. Could be scaled up to A3.
Fully scaffolded task, with extension activities, where students are supported in writing a scientific method for a practical. Gives sentence starters and highlights key words. Perfect for a homework / independent task. Chosen practical is biology but good for general science methodology and literacy skills.
