GCSE Chemistry - Moles calculations

(1)
A scaffolded worksheet that takes students through calculating the mass of a certain number of moles using relative formula mass. It then moves on to students calculating the number of moles given the mass and working out the relative formula mass. Other Chemistry and Physics worksheets are available from my shop, GradeGain.
Powers of Ten, Prefixes and Standard Form Homework/Worksheet
ncrumptonncrumpton

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.

Trilogy - Physics equations to memorise

(18)
A full list of all the equations that must be memorised for AQA Trilogy specification, Physics component. This is for the new GCSE (2016). There is an accompanying test sheet available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/physics-equations-test-sheet-11313072
GCSE Physics equations test sheet
ncrumptonncrumpton

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.
Ohm's Law Calculations Worksheet
ncrumptonncrumpton

Ohm's Law Calculations Worksheet

(0)
Exactly what it says, a few practice calculations using Ohm's Law for GCSE Physics. There is a worked example to start with and then students quickly progress to completing their own calculations. Useful as a starter activity or revision for students who are struggling with the mathematics behind Ohm's Law. This is a differentiated resource that enables student to develop confidence with Ohm's Law. For a more difficult worksheet please see this resource: Ohm's Law
Resistance calculations

Trilogy Physics Equation test sheet

(0)
A sheet to accompany my FREE download of equations needed for Trilogy Physics. This is a useful test sheet that allows your students the opportunity to improve their recall of the key equations for Physics. This can be used as a look, cover, write, check activity or as a test.
GCSE Physics - Free body diagrams and vector diagrams worksheet
ncrumptonncrumpton

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.

ncrumptonncrumpton

KS3 Physics - Timeline of the universe

(0)
A fully resourced and differentiated lesson plan, presentation and worksheets for students to discover the Timeline of the universe. The lesson begins with students ranking celestial objects by size and then moves through speed of light, and size of universe to a group activity Apprentice style for them to draw a one year timeline of the universe. Great opportunity for group work and Building Learning Power. Groups 1 and 5 are for MA and LA students Group 2 can be duplicated for as many middle ability groups as necessary. Please remember to review. Thanks ;-)

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.
Tarsia Puzzle template

Tarsia Puzzle template

(1)
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.
