GCSE Physics - Scalar and Vector Quantities lesson plan, presentation and worksheet

(0)
A fully featured lesson plan, presentation and worksheet that introduces students to scalar and vector quantities. They learn about magnitude and direction and classify different quantities as scalar or vector. The PPT then takes them through drawing magnitude arrows and then how to draw vector diagrams from this. The worksheet gives them plenty of practice at drawing simple vector diagrams.
