Motion

Motion

(0)
The key objective behind this scheme of work is to enable students to draw, interpret and use graphs of motion to analyse the motion of objects. The learning outcomes include: Speed, distance and time Distinguish between (i) distance and displacement and (ii) speed and velocity 2, Give the SI units for distance, displacement, speed and velocity. Define (average) speed as: speed = distance travelled / time taken Solve problems using this equation using correct units. Recognise that (instantaneous) velocity of an object is its (instantaneous) speed in a stated direction. Draw and interpret distance vs time graphs: relating the speed of an object to the gradient of the line (for objects moving quickly, slowly, speeding up, slowing down or stationary) find the speed by calculating the gradient of the graph recognise a negative gradient as motion backwards Acceleration Define acceleration Solve problems for accelerating objects speeding up or slowing down using the equation for acceleration and correct units. Draw and interpret velocity vs time graphs: Relating the gradient of the line to the acceleration of the object Calculating the acceleration from the gradient Relate the acceleration of an object to the application of a (net) force
Waves

Waves

(0)
The key objective behind this scheme of work is to enable students to describe, in words and using mathematics, the essential features of sound and light waves and their propagation. The learning outcomes are detailed below: Features of Waves Describe a progressive wave. Distinguish between transverse and longitudinal waves (with reference to the direction of oscillation of the particles). Give examples of transverse and longitudinal waves. Define the following terms and identify them on diagrams (for transverse waves only): wavelength, amplitude, particle displacement Define the period and frequency of a wave, finding one given the other. Use the wave equation to explore the relationship between the speed of a wave, frequency and wavelength: v=fλ Sound waves Interpret traces of sound waves (made by a CRO, for example) Relate the properties of a sound wave to the pitch, volume and timbre of a sound. Outline and evaluate an experiment to measure the speed of sound in air. Electromagnetic Waves Distinguish between mechanical waves and electromagnetic waves. Outline differences and similarities between sound and light waves. List the components of the electromagnetic spectrum in order of frequency and wavelength. Identify the components of the electromagnetic spectrum that are ionising and discuss their dangers. Give uses for each component of the electromagnetic spectrum (including the use of electromagnetic waves for communication and for medical imaging). Identify that when a wave strikes a surface or change in medium, there will be reflection, transmission and absorption.
Risks and Hazards

Risks and Hazards

(0)
This creative, fun and easy-to-use resource introduces risks and hazards in the science laboratory. It introduces ten of the most common hazard symbols and their meanings and encourages students to test their knowledge using a fun ‘pictionary’ plenary activity, where students take it in turn to draw a hazard symbol whilst their peers have to race to correctly name the symbol being drawn.
Features of a Wave

Features of a Wave

(0)
This creative and easy-to-use resource introduces mechanical waves, the key features of waves, and the main differences between longitudinal and transverse waves. It includes links to useful videos on the topic, short activities, and a plenary. Slide 10 of the PowerPoint is the worksheet I hand out to my students, either to fill in as we go through the material or as a revision activity afterwards.
Geological Time and Earth Evolution
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Geological Time and Earth Evolution

(1)
This resources provides useful images and videos to help stimulate discussion and learning about the evolution of life on earth. Students use the internet to help them construct diagrams of the geological time scale, including the times and names for the geological eras and periods, as well as descriptions of important events of life on Earth.
Disease - Microbes - Reproduction Modes
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Disease - Microbes - Reproduction Modes

(0)
This resource is ideal for a first lesson on the topic of disease. The first slide includes a series of questions for students to discuss about diseases. The second slide introduces the six different types of pathogens. Students can then copy and complete the table on the third slide, about the structure and modes of reproduction, using the remaining slides on the powerpoint, their textbooks and/or the internet. The fill-in-the-blanks worksheet can be used alongside the powerpoint resource and includes examples of diseases caused by bacteria, virus’s and fungi.
Balanced Diets

Balanced Diets

(0)
The objective of this lesson is to help students understand what is meant by the term ‘balanced diet’ and how energy requirements vary with activity levels, age and pregnancy. This lesson builds upon prior knowledge that a balanced diet should include appropriate proportions of carbohydrate, protein, lipid, vitamins, minerals, water and dietary fibre. Students begin by critiquing BMI as a indication of healthy body mass before considering how and why energy requirements vary from person to person. The lesson encourages students to consider what happens if they don’t get the right amount of the right nutrients, and includes a possible homework activity, to design a TV advert on behalf of the government to encourage young people to eat a balanced diet.
Protein Synthesis

Protein Synthesis

(0)
These resources are designed to help students understand the stages of protein synthesis including transcription and translation, including the role of mRNA, ribosomes, tRNA, codons and anticodons. The PowerPoint includes a series of useful links to youtube videos on the topic, as well as a past paper question and mark scheme.
