This is everything that a teacher or school needs to teach the entire AS course (Year 1 A-Level AQA). Designed around the AQA syllabus this scheme would be invaluable to anyone teaching any of the main exam boards (OCR and Edexcel).
Chapter 1 is also available FREE if you would like to sample the quality of this resource.
Every individual lesson is available to download at £2/lesson - Chapters are almost half price and this huge bundle of every chapter works out at only 50p per lesson PLUS information and guidance on the six Year 1 required practicals.
All links, page references and lesson codes are from the latest (2015/2016) Oxford University Press book (Both AS and A-Level)
Version history:

This is a bundle of 12 fully planned lessons and full PowerPoints to assist in the delivery of an Astrophysics course.
This not only fully completes the AQA Unit 9 scheme (Optional Astrophysics course) but would be ideal for running a Stretch and Challenge GCSE club
This course has excellent ideas, pictures and mathematical solutions to assist in the astrophysics sections of other examination boards
This bundle represents a saving of 46% on the purchase price of the lessons separately.
Version history:
v1.01 - Lesson 28.3 (Charge coupled devices) mathematical error corrected
v1.03 - Lesson 28.5 / 28.6 Error in formula corrected and wavelength scale reveres on spectral diagram
v1.04 - Lesson 28.10/11 typos corrected and magnitude formula sign altered
v1.05 - Lesson 28.12 corrected an error in the maths example. Added a work-through of a second question.

This is the first of three lessons that introduce the idea of logarithms
The PowerPoint takes students through the difficulties in graphing data of wide ranging numbers and then, using the E-M spectrum and H-R diagrams, shows how log-log graphs can be used to display this data.
This is part of the essential mathematics skills needed for A-Level Physics

This is a detailed lesson and PowerPoint explain the uses of radiation, dosage to patients and two examples of non-medical uses. This is the eleventh lesson in the Atomic Structure unit of work (P4).
The lesson covers the selection criteria for isotopes and uses Technetium as an example, enables consideration for balancing and weighing risks to patients and includes data of common treatments. A one page worksheet has been included as a short activity to enable pupils to graph the data and think about the risks of therapy.
There is a detailed lesson plan with notes on teaching, a PowerPoint to support the lesson and a worksheet to aid in delivery / test understanding. There are also ideas for homework tasks and differentiation tasks that can be used by a teacher to develop the lesson further.

This is a detailed lesson and PowerPoint discussing radioactive waste, irradiation and contamination. This is the ninth lesson in the Atomic Structure unit of work (P4).
The lesson covers the following learning objectives from the syllabus documentation:
• Radioactive contamination is the unwanted presence of materials containing radioactive atoms on other materials.
• Irradiation is the process of exposing an object to nuclear radiation.
• The irradiated object does not become radioactive.
• Suitable precautions must be taken to protect against any hazard
• Understanding that it is important for the findings of studies into the effects of radiation on humans to be published and shared with other scientists so that the findings can be checked by peer review.
• Hazards associated with radioactive material differ according to the half-life involved.
There is a detailed lesson plan with notes on teaching and a PowerPoint (12 slides).
