A Level Physics Graphs & Data Analysis

(0)
Designed for CCEA's A Level Physics specification, this worksheet of questions is designed for students to improve their graph work for data analysis and experimental analysis. Questions include: * comparing equations to the equation for a straight line y = mx + c, determining the gradient and y intercept * taking logs of equations before linking to y = mx + c * using data provided to take logs of an equation and decide upon correct axes for a graph, with a view to finding the numerical value of a constant

Worksheets on Measurements

(1)
Short worksheets of questions designed to test knowledge of how measurements are taken in Physics e.g. volume, time, length. These can be used for Key Stages 2 or 3.
Resistors card sort activity
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Resistors card sort activity

(0)
Designed for GCSE Physics students, this card sort is a matching activity for combinations of resistors. Cards contain 24 different combinations of resistors in series and parallel for students to match up with the correct answers. This can be used as a starter, plenary or within the lesson itself as an alternative, or introduction to calculations involving resistors. The full set could be used with small groups, or a set could be split with a smaller number of cards available for individual students. There is also the opportunity to differentiate for higher and lower ability students.
Weight and mass

Radioactivity revision dominoes

(0)
Designed for GCSE Physics, these dominoes contain key terms in Nuclear Physics and can be used for a starter, plenary or as part of a revision exercise. Ideal for small groups or individual students. 4 differently coloured sets of 24 dominoes for easy sorting at the end of the day!
GCSE Electricity - Resistor Networks
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

GCSE Electricity - Resistor Networks

(0)
These resources are ideal for allowing students to test their knowledge of total resistance in series and parallel circuits. I printed the network diagrams on card and gave each pair a set. With the correct answers, I wrote a letter on the back of each card which would make a Physics term or terms (e.g. longitudinal). Incorrect answers had random letters written on the back, then all coloured cards were stuck in various locations around the room, to make a treasure hunt. For my Year 12 GCSE students (medium to high ability) this activity took 10-15 minutes and was great for revision. The Word document includes instructions which can be given to the pairs/groups with their network diagram cards.
