AQA-style GCSE Literature sample essay question and exemplar response on Hyde with activities

(0)
A sample AQA-style GCSE Literature question and response on the character of Hyde in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. This also includes a list of student activities that guide them to evaluate and develop the sample essay. This resource would be ideal for use over a couple of lessons with potential for students to revise Stevenson's presentation of Hyde and re-write the essay, making their improvements to it. I recommend that students also have copies of the Literature Paper 1 mark scheme for the marking activity. This resource features plenty of challenging concepts and vocabulary and is aimed at students working towards a 5-9 grade in English Literature.

The paper itself is offered as a Word document. This resource provides a great way to practice for the final unit of the new OCR Physics A course particularly as there is a real shortage of past paper questions available.

Maths Skills Assessment for A-level Physics and Engineering with data analysis tools

(0)
This is an assessment of students' Maths skills for the beginning (or during) the A-level Physics course. It assesses students' ability in rearranging equations, prefixes, standard form, graphs, y=mx+c, trig and natural logs. I've used this assessment both as a class test and as homework and it is very useful in identifying not just the students whose Maths skills are weaker but also the specific areas of Maths they are struggling with. The resource includes a Word file of the test itself (which covers 1 1/2 sides of A4), a word file with the answers and an Excel file that can be used to analyse the data from the assessment. The excel file records students marks question-by-question and conditionally formats (RAGs) their marks.

Make a scale model of the Solar System – Scale model calculator

(0)
An Excel spreadsheet that calculates the size and distance from the sun of the planets of the solar system. All you need to do is enter the size (diameter) of the object you're going to use as the Sun and the spreadsheet calculates the rest. It also calculates the distance to the Voyager 1 spacecraft, Alpha Centauri, Pole Star and Andromeda galaxy. This can be done as a class activity or students can be given copies of the spreadsheet to work this out themselves. A fun summer term activity that students can do outside or inside. Suitable for Primary and Seconday and an excellent resource for gifted and talented students.

Energy and Power Calculations with Bear Grylls' The Island

(0)
An activity for GCSE students to practice calculations using Energy = Power x time. The activity involves students working out how much energy it takes for a person to travel through different terrain. The task is based on the TV show "The Island" with Bear Grylls. The task raises interesting questions about energy conservation, the energy content of food (students are told which food items they have and how much energy each contains). It is an enjoyable team working exercise. In this resource you get the task explained on a powerpoint presentation, a lesson plan and a handout sheet with the map on.
