GCSE Waves Glossary: key words, definitions and example sentences to support literacy.

(0)
For £2 this resource covers all the key terms in the Trilogy and Physics Waves topics of the AQA GCSE Physics course: 4.6.1 ( 3 subsections), 4.6.2 ( 2 subsections) and 4.6.3. ( 3hrs). Each sub-glossary is in a single detachable section. Cut them , photocopy them in A5 and ask students to glue them to their exercise books. Alternatively copy them on A5, in colour and display around the class room and the corridors adjacent to the classroom , and the School's magazine literacy section. Includes key terms (over 50) , definitions and a sentences to exemplify the use of the key term. The examples will help students understand the context in which the key term can be used. The examples are level 5-6 literacy to support boys whom struggle with vocabulary and complex sentence construction. You can use this comprehensive resource to plan Science literacy quizzes and other engaging activities: 'new word' discussion, 'Key term spotter', 'dictionary champion', 'Science literacy' bingo etc. Used as the platform for higher Teaching and Learning resources to optimise the impact of your teaching.

'AS' Linear motion graphs starter activity or a revision and consolidation lesson activity

(0)
10 MC unusually phrased questions that require students to compare two types of graph: d-t,v-t and a-t graph. Challenge students to reflect on their understanding of these graphs. As a starter activity allow 10 minutes for individual students to answer the 10 questions. As and AFL activity this delivers peer assessment when you ask students to check and discuss each other's answers. As a 'talk to learn' strategy allow students 5-10 minutes to argue for or against their answer. Detect general misconceptions or identify students with fundamental problems in this unit and plan an intervention lesson, or work with them while other students work on exam practise questions. Buy 'AS motion challenge' resource for additional differentiation. Raise your T+L impact in your class for £2.

Circular Motion and centripetal forces/ further Mechanics

(0)
OCR and AQA Further Mechanics A level work, for exams in June 2018. Please refer to the 2015 Specifications. This unit of work covers A2 circular motion, it is suitable for 1.5 to 2 hours teaching, but must be supported by teacher demonstrations and Practical work ( please refer to the exam board's list of practicals). The explanations and solutions of the vertical circle and the engineering context of this topic have not been covered, to leave room for the teacher to drive it in his/her direction of choice. AFL in the form of Multiple choice questions is included. Please up load this resource to your VLE to support your students. Find additional support in IOP and refer to your Exam board specifications for past paper practise.

KS3 level 5 Tennis project; understanding sports injuries

(0)
KS3 level 5 covers practical skills and a GCSE topic; Hooke's law in the context of sport and injuries in tennis. This is part of a set of lessons to engage year 7 to 13 students (KS3, KS4 and KS5) with STEM subjects ( forces, data analysis and materials' technology) in the context of sport, and particularly Tennis as June-July is the season of many great tournaments. Why re-invent the wheel? Invest and enjoy for a many teaching groups and a few years to come.

his worksheet is rigorous in its use of scientific terms and conventions, and it is a step by step description of Newton's second Law of motion to derive the four most useful equations of motion. The students is shown how their knowledge and understanding improves and expands from Physics Lower high school 'C' grade to Physics 01 or Maths Mechanics 01 'A' grade, through the use of exam style questions. The Mark scheme gives a step by step commentary on the methods and final answer conventions, to help the student understand the pitfall in problem solving e.g carelessness with units and decimal place presentation. The work could be set as a 2 hour independent study to support learning of ' Motion in a straight line with constant acceleration' and or Maths Mechanics 1 Dynamics. This worksheet will allow the teacher to see differentiation in the class and understand student's needs, thus targeting feedback and assistance efficiently. Change the way you teach and improve the impact of your experience and knowledge on your student's progress for $4.
