There are 14 differentiated questions around using Hooke’s Law and Elastic Potential energy.
Student feedback says that they love the layout. They can measure their own progress and it is easy and quick to mark and leave specific feedback (the answers include a full method). It has been designed to build confidence as well as low-stakes competition into lessons. Like students do in maths, students will be able to apply equations and use the triangle method for rearranging.
The font used is “OpenDyslexic” - this helps students with dyslexic tendencies to access the work easier. More information here: https://www.opendyslexic.org/.

Typical layout of questions (some worksheets have around 14 questions) where Q1 is simplest and Q14 is hardest.
Example:
Q1 to 5 - 1 Chilli (Low demand). Focussed around remembering equations (students should use mini whiteboards or scrap paper for repetition)
Q6 to 8 - 2 Chilli’s (Low/Middle Demand). Focused around using the equation - e.g. simple conversion or having to rearrange the equation.
Q9 to 11 - 3 Chilli’s (Middle/High Demand). Rearranging the equation and using conversions.
Q12 to 14 - 4 Chilli’s (High Demand). Stretch questions, e.g. towards Year 12 or short written answers.
Designed so that students can choose where to start, although the highest ability will want to complete all of the questions.
Questions answered from the 1st column give you 1 chilli each. Column 2, each question is worth 2 chillis etc. At the end, count the chilli’s that the student has and this suggests a current working at grade.
Perfect for:
• Assessing prior knowledge
• Homework (easy to mark and suggest how to move forward as focused around skills of using equations).
• Starters / plenaries - part of “low stake” tests - build up a series of “mini-marks” on a tracker sheet before larger tests so students can identify their strengths and weaknesses.
• Recall and Retrieval
• Metacognition
• Self-monitoring
• Revision
• Cover lessons (fully explained mark scheme that can support students and non-specialist teachers)

This resource is based on the AQA Combined Science Physics Paper 1.
There are 10 questions, each multiple choice and answers provided at the end. I have used this for homework, but there is no reason that it couldn’t be used in lessons. I have included the word document so that you can edit the resource as you wish. The pdf is also there for quick printing.
I have used this to build confidence with my students, but also as part of continually revisiting earlier parts of the course that I have taught. Repetition, repetition, repetition!
I use “quickkeyapp” on my iPhone to mark the work (see bubble sheets at the end of the resource), but you do not need this app (also available on android). Just get the students to write a,b,c,d or e as their answer.
Extremely easy to mark and therefore giving you more time to spend on the feedback and where students have made mistakes.

• Labelling atom
• Alpha definition
• Beta definition
• Particle names
• Periodic Table
• Neutron facts
• Alpha/Gamma compare
• Alpha decay
• Alpha decay

Questions are given with 5 choices of answer (A,B,C,D,E). Each answer is “plausible”, which makes the student think and allows misconceptions to be discussed quickly. A great way to assess learning in a non-threatening and fun way. I have used this to build confidence with my students, but also as part of continually revisiting earlier parts of the course that I have taught. Repetition, repetition, repetition!
Students can write their answers on the front page. Easy marking for teachers, but lots of exam question exposure for students. Feedback from teachers is that it is extremely easy to mark and therefore giving more time to spend on the feedback and where students have made mistakes.
Extensive answers are provided – giving the full working / method where required. The answers provide a step by step method so that students can identify exactly where they have gone wrong.
The word document is included so that you can edit the resource as you wish. The pdf is also there for quick printing.
#SLOP - shed loads of practice
The resource has primarily been made for AQA Science. As with most topics however, each exam board will require the same knowledge – physics is physics. Always consult your specification.

This resource comes with 20 multiple choice questions on the topic of magnetism and electromagnetism (transformers). Primarily aimed at GCSE students, but could equally be used as a reminder for A Level students.
Questions are either given with 5 choices of answer (A,B,C,D,E) or are True/False. A great way to assess learning in a non-threatening and fun way.
Each question and answer gives an indication for which area of the course the question should be asked. Always consult the specification – some topics are just for GCSE Separate Science and not relevant to GCSE Combined Science.
To give an indication of difficulty, each question has been given a level of challenge. Challenge 1 is the “easiest” and Challenge 4 the “hardest”. 3 and 4 are generally aimed at students studying for the higher paper – although they will need to know 1 and 2 also!
The skill has also highlighted. This might be knowledge, using an equation or recalling the correct unit. Where needed, the full method to achieve the answer is also provided.
How to use with students:
Option 1
Use it as a test at the start of a topic to judge what students already know, or a plenary at the end. Easy to mark as each question has 5 multiple choice responses. Some questions are True/False and so have 2 responses. Teacher or students can mark error free.
Option 2
Set the work for homework. Could upload the questions onto ShowMyHomework as a “Quiz”. It will then mark itself. Alternatively, you can also set up a Microsoft Form on Office365 and send the link to students. This will do the same.
Option 3
A favourite option is to use something like “Quick Key”. Can be given to students during the lesson or given as homework.
There is a free version, but the paid for version is around £30 for the year. Students then get the questions and fill their answers out on a “bubble sheet” (they colour in a circle as their answer). You can then scan the answers in using the app on your phone. The answers can then be analysed and it shows the teacher which questions a few got wrong (students can then help each other) and the teacher can focus on the questions that the majority of the class got incorrect.
Option 4
Copy the QUESTION ONLY onto your PowerPoint slide. Give the students 5 seconds to think about what the answer will be. With hands down, PICK a student. Then ask another student if they agree and then ask “why?” Known as “Pose, Pause, Pounce, Bounce” – google it if you are unsure.
To help students formulate an answer if they are struggling, on the NEXT slide of the PowerPoint, show what the answers could be. This could be done via “Think, Pair, Share” where students can discuss the answer. This method also means that all students will have to give a response as the answer is in front of them and they can guess if needed rather than saying “I don’t know.”

There are 14 differentiated questions on the topic of Charge = Current x Time (Q=It).
Student feedback says that they love the layout. They can measure their own progress and it is easy and quick to mark and leave specific feedback (the answers include a full method).
