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 Energy, Charge and Potential Difference calculations
ncrumpton

GCSE Physics Energy, Charge and Potential Difference calculations

(0)
A scaffolded worksheet of 10 questions to help students practice using E=QV. This worksheet takes them through how to lay out calculations and rearrange them using the triangle method. There is also a tricky question at the end that links back to prior learning using Q=It as well. Answers included!
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.
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.
Wave speed calculations
ncrumpton

Wave speed calculations

(0)
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.
Tarsia Puzzle template
ncrumpton

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.
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.
