Resolving forces - worksheet to teach and practise this skill (Mechanics 1)

Resolving forces - worksheet to teach and practise this skill (Mechanics 1)

I found it time-consuming tryingto teach my classes how to resolve forces by drawing diagrams on the board and asking them to copy them down - it seemed to take ages and they didn't get to work through that many examples themselves. So I created this worksheet with ready-made diagrams with all the forces and a blank copy of diagram for students to add on the resolved forces. I no longer dread teaching this skill and my classes get a lot more done in the lesson time. The worksheet starts with an introductory explanation and a worked example. There are then over 20 questions for students to attempt. Fully worked solutions are included.

Equation of a straight line - 15 resources to teach, practice, revise and assess this topic

I think this set of resources covers everything your classes need to learn and practice on straight line graphs (up to GCSE level). All the resources are suitable to be projected or printed for students to work on, saving a lot of time for drawing graphs and allowing them to annotate or work on diagrams. All resources come with solutions included. Here is a brief description of each resource: 1. Basic straight lines - lines of the form x=a, y=a and y=x or y=-x 2. Drawing straight lines - 10 questions using the equation of a line y=mx+c to complete a table of values and draw the graph. 3. Cover-up method - 12 questions to practise drawing lines of the form ax+by=c 4. Using the equation - test if a point lies on a line, determine y-coord given x-coord and vice versa (70 questions) 5. Finding the gradient - 18 questions to practise finding gradients, including where the scales on the axes are not the same 6. Matching y=mx+c to the graph - they find the gradient and y-intercept for each given graph and equation, learning the connection between the equation and properties of the graph 7. Equation to gradient and y-intercept - simple worksheet to practice writing down the gradient and coordinates of y-intercept from the equation, and vice versa (24 questions) 8. Finding the equation of a line - 24 questions to practise finding the equation of the line from its graph, including where the scales on the axes are not the same 9. Finding equation using point and gradient - 10 questions to practise doing this with a grid as an aid, then 26 questions without a grid 10. Pairs of lines - 4 graphs, each with a pair of parallel or perpendicular lines. By finding the equation of each line the students should start to see the rules for gradients of parallel and perpendicular lines 11. Parallel and perpendicular lines - almost 50 questions finding the equation of a line parallel / perp to a given line that passes through (0,b) or (a, b) 12. Using two points A and B - find midpoint M of AB, gradient of line through A and B, equation of line through A and B, equation of line perp. to AB through A, B or M. 10 questions to learn the methods with grids as an aid, then an exercise for each style of question (over 50 questions in total). 13.

First order differential equations worksheet

First order differential equations worksheet

This resource can be used to guide your students through the different techniques that may be used to solve some first order differential equations. It begins with a reminder about the solution of 'variable separable' equations, with a couple of examples to work through. By means of an example, the next section shows how the use of an integrating factor can help to solve 1st order linear diff.eqns. After the method is summarised there are a further 2 examples to work through with your class. The worksheet then mentions the use of a substitution to simplify a complex diff.eqn into either a linear or variable separable one. There are no examples of such equations, just a table for students to practise determining if the resulting simplified equation is linear or variable separable. The remainder of the resource introduces the important method of finding the general solution by adding the complementary function and the particular integral. It begins with the method for finding the complementary function from the auxiliary equation, and then goes on to explain the method for testing a suitable function f(x) for the particular integral (including the case where the function f(x) appears in the complementary function). There are several examples of this method to work through with your students, followed by an exercise with over 20 questions for students to complete themselves. Answers to the exercise are included.
