I like to produce Science resources that are of a topical nature, both Science and Mathematics games and Science resources with a practical theme. I have taught Science and Mathematics, been a writer for the Science Upd8 program, exam writer with Biology Olympiad (NZ) and Senior Biology lecturer at Unitec Step-Up program, NZ. Should you experience any problem with my resources - contact me and I'll change it and send you a replacement.

Energy Output of Burning Different Fuels

Energy Output of Burning Different Fuels

Check the range fuels used. I suggest using a range of fuels of an increasing number of carbon atoms - however this can be dangerous! You know your pupils – being careful is better than being sorry. Remember - Health and Safety is the responsibility of the teacher in charge of the activity. Consult with your laboratory technician and try the experiment before allowing the pupils to attempt the experiment. You know your pupils best. Free starter and plenary activities are provided. Extra sheets of pupil write on sheets are provided. Activity is structured allowing projection of sheets onto Interactive White Board to allow collation of class results and class discussion. A suggested marking schedule is also provided , along with Grading and Feedback Sheets. I would suggest putting the pupils into 'marking pairs' and letting them grade each others work and give feedback. Then cast an eye over the work to check it has been done correctly. This activity teaches the pupils how to interpret a marking matrix and make judgements as to what is required to achieve each grade. It takes patience giving the pupils practice carrying out his activity, but will ultimately result in higher pupil achievement and easier marking for you.
