Grade Gain by Neil Crumpton

I am currently a Head of Science at a rural Secondary School and I have a background in Telecomms and Software Engineering. I can occasionally be found on BBC Radio Shropshire as their Science Teacher. I enjoy finding innovative ways to help students revise and have developed the Grade Gain app for Science revision.

GCSE Physics - Power, voltage and current calculations

GCSE Physics - Power, voltage and current calculations

A structured worksheet to take students through using the GCSE Physics equations P=VI. It starts off with 5 questions using it in the P=VI format then there are 4 further questions using the formula in a rearranged format. The final question is a tough one that requires linking knowledge from other formula, notably E=VQ and Q=It, both of which they need to know.

Tarsia Puzzle template

Tarsia Puzzle template

This is a handy template for creating Tarsia Puzzles. They are triangular pieces that form a hexagon when connected up correctly. Write words/definitions on each piece so that they pair up, cut up the pieces and then students have to put the puzzle back together based on their knowledge. This does not do it for you automatically. This is a great tool for testing knowledge on a wide range of topics.

Wave speed calculations

Wave speed calculations

A worksheet that takes students through how to answer exam style questions on wave speed, frequency and wavelength. There are worked examples followed by an opportunity for students to practice their skills. It reinforces the technique of making sure students show their working out and makes sure they remember the units. Comes complete with answers.

GCSE Physics Required Practical 2 - Thermal Insulation worksheet

GCSE Physics Required Practical 2 - Thermal Insulation worksheet

This has been produced as an extract of the AQA required practical document. It is designed to be printed two pages to a page and flip on short edge to form a booklet that students can then stick in their books. This is for required practical 2 Thermal insulation. The content is from AQA and the layout and formatting is my own. AQA may change the contents of their practical this is correct as of 07-07-2016.

Powers of Ten, Prefixes and Standard Form Homework/Worksheet

Powers of Ten, Prefixes and Standard Form Homework/Worksheet

This resource is an opportunity for students to practice converting to common prefixes such as micro, milli etc. and converting numbers to standard form or scientific notation. There are 20 questions for them to complete and I have included the answers as well! This is aimed at Science students for the new maths content within the new GCSE (2016) for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC but it would be equally suitable for anyone needing to practice standard form so any Maths students. It is designed as a homework but can equally well be used as a lesson activity. This resource is designed to accompany my Powers of Ten lesson (available separately) which is a good introduction to this worksheet.
