UCAS and beyond. Why apply to university and what is out there in the UK and Europe?

UCAS and beyond. Why apply to university and what is out there in the UK and Europe?

My entire UCAS and EU university resources. If time I'll throw in my common app ones too. There's everything there to get your pupils thinking about applying to uni, and to guide them through the process. There is the ever-popular top trumps, some powerpoints, an editable excell table for viewing where th pupils are in the application cycle. and a bit on university costings (why go to the UK when you can be educated, in English, in Amsterdam?) Get in quick before Brexit!!! PS, the photo is my son (now at uni) embarking on his first big adventure...

Oh sh1t it is Sunday... Feeling snowed under?

Everything you need to get you through another week of teaching science. Handouts that include weblinks, questions, word fill and comprehensive notes. Pair matching activities, sequencing activities, flashvards. It is enough to make Friday seem that little bit closer.

Forces and Motion. Calculation of g, a lesson in Data Handling in Science Experiments

Forces and Motion. Calculation of g, a lesson in Data Handling in Science Experiments

This is for pupils to develop the ability to use a spreadsheet (I wrote it in excel) to process a large amount of data in order to calculate a value for g (set to be a little lower than 9.8) and then lead into consideration of experimental errors. Using s=ut + 1/2at2 pupils can calculate gravitational acceleration. Pupils are provided with values for s and t Pupils need to calculate a mean t from a very large data set (easy to do using excel). Pupils then need to square the mean t. Then they need to plot s against t2 which will give them a linear graph with the gradient as 1/2 a. The worksheet is editable so weaker pupils can have more guided instructions. Stronger pupils can work their way through. The accompanying worksheet then looks at errors in measurement- absolute and % AND there is a random error in the data set. Pupils can use absolute errors in the data to determine size of error bars, Pupils can work out experimental error, plot best, steepest and shallowest trend lines for g and compare that against the total % error in their data.

Quantitive Chemistry Moles and Titrations Topic 1 IB

Quantitive Chemistry Moles and Titrations Topic 1 IB

This is a set of complete lesson notes. Good for supplementary notes, as cover, for prep or for revision. It includes questions and activities and can be edited. Covers titration procedure. I have started to combine this with my Stochiometric relationships worksheet (available in a bundle) as a plenary to reinforce the work. more resources here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/paulbold

AS Chemistry Start of term kickoff

AS Chemistry Start of term kickoff

A set of resources for those under pressure to demonstrate intervention etc. This is everything I think a new teacher would want to get them going at teaching AS level. Everything from notes for the terminally lazy to revision activities for those chasing a grade.

Applying to Universities in Europe

Applying to Universities in Europe

This contains a little more information about the benefits of studying in Europe (principally cost) but also calibre of university via weblinks. It is editable and I use this as the framework for a letter to parents.

Organic Chemistry Flashcards Mechanisms and Functional Groups EDITABLE

Organic Chemistry Flashcards Mechanisms and Functional Groups EDITABLE

Differentiated Resources for teaching Organic Chemistry. Differentiated by ability and task. Pupils use the cut out and match-up cards to construct a reaction pathway, from alkenes to carboxylic acids and back and flashcards to learn the functional groups. I have colour coded this into three simple reaction pathways-see picture- you could amalgamate for stronger pupils (or get them to integrate) into one larger web, or provide blanks to expand on the stimulus material. To make Flashcards- simply fold down the centre and stick. For weaker candidates I give them colour coded versions. Additionally, for the flashcards, weaker candidates get given the structures. Stronger candidates can do this as a pair matching or sequencing activity which gives better retention in the long run. Works fine as a starter, revision, plenary or activity.

Revision of Stoichiometric relationships

Revision of Stoichiometric relationships

Differentiated revision/ activity. This is a simple reinforcement/ revision resource in which the pupils need to link the boxes to complete the definition. I normally pair this with a second resource (attached) where the pupils then write the second part of the definition in a blank box. Alternatively, slice the statements into individual parts and scatter across the desk- pupils need to reassemble -which, if you believe in gardner's multiple intelligences (which I don't), is good for kinaesthetic learners.

Interview Checklist

Interview Checklist

As it says on the tin- a checklist of things I would expect pupils to do before they go to an interview. Proper preparation and planning prevent pretty poor performance.

Supporting pupils with careers advice- mentor tutors editable

Supporting pupils with careers advice- mentor tutors editable

This is something I write for Mts to keep them focussed on their responsibilities at this time of the year. Includes links to guidance on applying to holland, the US, the UK etc, personal statement advice and is a good start for the inexperienced MT. I keep track of all of the applications, personal statements and references through a google drive, but you can edit this to link in to whatever you want. This is a brief over-view, a full presentation required an hour and staff were losing the will to live, so I have chopped it to the bare minimum that I think MTs should be doing.

Work Experience advice- editable

This is a piece that I wrote for the TES and that I issue to mentor tutors to help their tutees make choices about work experience. It can be edited for your school, and even sent to parents.

KS 3 Properties of Mixtures. Pure or Impure

This is a resource I made for an observed lesson on Mixtures. It is differentiated by task and learning style and supplements work on Elements compounds and mixtures. It includes a data handling exercise and works into demonstrations using molymods and real demonstrations.

IBDP BIOLOGY Option D Human Health and Nutrition.

IBDP BIOLOGY Option D Human Health and Nutrition.

Differentiated Revision activities for the option including flashcards, linking pairs games and activities to reinforce the learning of key facts and definitions. The Flashcards on Vitamins, deficiency diseases are the ones that I start with, then Heart, Enzymes, etc It links back to prior learning, and differentiates to stretch the most able up to early university level/ medical grade.

Grade 12 Chemistry Back to school Bundle

Grade 12 Chemistry Back to school Bundle

Unlike Big Bundle, this is more notes and worked examples/ questions than quick activities. It requires much more teacher input than Big Bundle, but offers greater challenge for the pupils- especially with longer-responses. It's good for most post-16 courses, although specific for the IBDP, can easily be repurposed for A levels. If you have pupils who missed lessons or have shoddy notes, this may well fill the gap.

Options Choices, Universities in UK and Europe, and Brexit from Careers perspective- editable

Options Choices, Universities in UK and Europe, and Brexit from Careers perspective- editable

For Mentor Tutors really, but can be formatted for parents or pupils (it's editable) With the Brexit nightmare unfolding, European courses are MUCH more attractive/competitive (cheaper for starters, and with academics leaving the UK, this is a perfect opportunity for European unis such as ETH, to poach students and staff from Oxbridge and Imperial). Applications to Cambridge are down by 14% this year- those pupils have to go somewhere and they can't ALL go to Scotland or Ireland. This is a simple guide produced to help advise pupils as to what permutations of subjects to take and the cost of study. I've written it for IB DP but the links will readily allow you to convert for A level or whatever you teach.

KS 3 Heat and Energy end of unit test EDITABLE

KS 3 Heat and Energy end of unit test EDITABLE

A simple 1 hour test comprising of multiple choice, longer responses, data handling (graph plotting and calculations) and reading and comprehension activities. It is editable so you can change it for your needs. Progressively more challenging, from simple responses, to short answers, to open questions. I have included a short reading and comprehension section to support my EFL candidates.
