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, current^2 and resistance calculations

(0)
A scaffolded worksheet allowing students to access the equation P=I^2R. They start by calculating the power and move onto rearranging the formula to calculate resistance. They end up having to use the square root to calculate current. All these are set in the context of real life.

ncrumpton

GCSE Physics Required Practical 6 - Hooke's Law

(1)
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 6 - Hooke’s Law. 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 20-10-2016.

GCSE Physics - equations to be memorised

(8)
A complete list of all the Physics Equations that must be memorised for the new (2016) GCSE exams. Both word and symbol format. This is suitable for all exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC). A useful checklist to have at the front of student books to enable them time to learn them. More Physics resources available here GradeGain
GCSE Physics equations test sheet
ncrumpton

GCSE Physics equations test sheet

(1)
This resource accompanies my FREE download of the Physics equations needed for the new GCSE (2016) for Physics. It is a blanked out version for students to complete. This is a great way for students to test, recall and revise the equations that they need to know. It can be used as a look, cover, write, check activity with the Physics equation sheet.
Quantities, units and their symbols for GCSE Physics
ncrumpton

Quantities, units and their symbols for GCSE Physics

(0)
A handy reference guide for GCSE Physics students (not double award). This covers all the major units and symbols that they might come across as a handy lookup table. This can be used for memorising the units by using look, cover, write check activities as well.
The motor effect calculations
ncrumpton

The motor effect calculations

(2)
A worksheet of calculations using F=BIl for the force on a current carrying wire in a magnetic field. These graded questions develop students ability with using then manipulating the equation. Suitable for new GCSE (2016). Complete with answer sheet.
Powers of Ten, Prefixes and Standard Form Homework/Worksheet
ncrumpton

Powers of Ten, Prefixes and Standard Form Homework/Worksheet

(0)
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.
GCSE Physics - Free body diagrams and vector diagrams worksheet
ncrumpton

GCSE Physics - Free body diagrams and vector diagrams worksheet

(0)
A worksheet aimed at helping students to draw Free Body Diagrams. It also gives them the opportunity to calculate resultant forces and vectors based on information provided. Finally they get to draw vector diagrams to combine vectors to find a resultant. Aimed at GCSE Physics but also suitable for combined science.
Questions on Ohm's Law
ncrumpton

Questions on Ohm's Law

(0)
A series of more difficult questions on Ohm's Law compared to resource https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ohm-s-law-calculations-worksheet-11280608 These require students to convert between common prefix units e.g. mA and the SI unit. A useful homework to set or use as revision or even as a class activity.
GCSE Physics - Power, voltage and current calculations
ncrumpton

GCSE Physics - Power, voltage and current calculations

(0)
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.
Physics Taboo
ncrumpton

Physics Taboo

(0)
A set of game cards for Taboo covering the basic topics of Physics: Energy, Waves, Origins of the Universe, Energy transfers, Conduction, Convection, Radiation. Students play in teams of two. One person picks up a card and has to describe the phrase in the top box without using any of the words on the card. Their team mate has to guess it to win. The opposing two members of the four can jump in and steal the card by guessing correctly. This is an ideal revision activity as it forces the students to describe the topic without using key words. This increases understanding.

GCSE Physics - Particle model of matter knowledge organiser

(0)
A detailed knowledge organiser for the new GCSE Physics exam. This knowledge organiser covers the section of work on Particle models of matter and Boyle's Law. Contains key formulae such as density, thermal energy, specific latent heat and Boyle's Law. Key word definitions, diagrams and symbols and units for all of the key information needed to succeed in the new GCSE. These can be used as self-quizzing revision, cover lessons, homework or any occasion needed. More great physics resources available in my shop GradeGain.
