Mr Ansell's Resources Shop

Most of the resources cover the AQA Physics GCSE specification, although a few do cover biology, chemistry and KS3 science and A-level physics. I try to always provide answers to worksheets.

Complete Set of Required Practical Worksheets for AQA GCSE Physics

Complete Set of Required Practical Worksheets for AQA GCSE Physics

These worksheets are intended to be used whilst running any of the 10 required practicals in AQA GCSE physics. They all include the equipment and methods for running the practicals. Some are designed towards improving maths skills; drawing graphs; calculating gradients; and substituting algebra with the line of best fit. Some are designed to improve students' abilities in writing scientific conclusions. These worksheets are designed towards higher achieving students, although the methods have been written to be easily followed by all, and a number of them have diagrams of the set ups included. The headers also link to where the learning can be found in the AQA books. If you find any issues with any of the worksheets, please don't hesitate to let me know.
