CSI Ballistics analysis - Kinetic energy of bullet

CSI Ballistics analysis - Kinetic energy of bullet

This activity gets pupils calculating the kinetic energy of bullets from different guns. As assassination of Michael Gove has occurred and they need to know the energies of the different guns. KS4: Good for middle to higher groups using the kinetic energy and thinking about loss of energy as bullets travel through the air. Place the 'bullet data' cards around the classroom and get pupils to move around and analyse the data. All images used under creative commons licence.

P5 - Transistors, logic gates and truth tables

P5 - Transistors, logic gates and truth tables

This differentiated lesson will explain the basic function of a transistor, along with the five types of logic gate that can be created with it, and that pupils need to know for the OCR Physics specification. This lesson explains how OR, AND, NOT, NAND and NOR gates work, as well as their associated truth tables. The lesson also shows how two or more gates can be combines and gets pupils to complete truth tables for these circuits. The lesson also sets the pupils a task of designing multiple logic gate circuits for a range of real world applications, each with a worked example to show on the board. The lesson has three plenaries to check your pupils understanding.

P2.1 - Speed, distance and time

P2.1 - Speed, distance and time

This lesson covers all aspects of speed, distance and time, focusing on using the s=d÷t formula and analysing distance time graphs. The lesson explains how to calculate speed using gradients on a distance time graph. The lesson is accompanied with differentiated worksheets set at three levels: 'Bronze', 'Silver', and 'Gold'. There is also a differentiated homework worksheets. Each worksheet comes with fully worked answers loaded onto Power Point slides, so that marking can be done either by the teacher or by the students/peers.

Energy bill from power, time and cost

Energy bill from power, time and cost

Pupils are given the power consumption of a range of appliances over a three month period and have to calculate Energy from power x time. The cost is then calculated and a bill calculated for the total energy used. Best for medium to lower ability sets or as a starter for higher sets.

Energy efficiency and conservation of energy

Energy efficiency and conservation of energy

A power point and two activity sheets (with cards) for pupils to complete. Firstly on the conservation of energy with examples on the board and a worksheet to complete. Secondly the use of the efficiency formula with pupils using a sheet and a set of cards (to be placed around the classroom) for them to gather information from. The concluding activity is a splat game whereby two pupils can be brought to the front and play against each other. It is the first person to hit the correct answer with their hand (or fly swatter if you have one). openclipart.org

Terminal velocity worksheet

Terminal velocity worksheet

Student are given a set of data to plot for a parachute jump and have to label on the different motions. Good 10-15 minute activity. 10th Grade: Good for thinking about Newton's first law and balanced and unbalanced forces. 11th Grade: Good for plotting graphs and calculating acceleration from gradients at different points (get them to plot then work out the acceleration after 10 seconds).

Power, Energy and Time (Solar Panel Analysis)

Power, Energy and Time (Solar Panel Analysis)

This activity gets pupils to calculate energy generated from a range of solar panels and work out the payback time from the current price per kWh given by the government (4.1 cents per kWh). The Solar panel comparison data.ppt can be printed out and the cards can be left around the room for students to gather data from. Students then have to draw a graph and write a letter based on two customers needs. Power, Energy, Time, Kilowatt hours, kWh, payback times, efficiency, literacy, formal letter.

States of Matter (Card Sort)

States of Matter (Card Sort)

This states of matter card sort gets students to match up the states, change of states and conductors/insulators. Students have to think about the forces holding the particles together and the energy the particles in each state have.

Hubble's Law handout from 1929 data

Hubble's Law handout from 1929 data

This handout gives students Hubble's original 1929 data on the distance and velocities of a range of galaxies. students are given axis and must plot distance against time and draw a conclusion from the data (Hubble’s law).V = Ho x D Velocity = (1/Time) x Distance.Good for getting students to plot graphs and find relationships. Most able students can be given graph paper and asked about strong/weak correlation.Good for calculating gradient and deriving Hubble’s constant (about 500 km/s/MPc for this 1929 data). Most able can find Hubble time (T=1/Ho) as the age of the universe.
