NEW AQA Magnetism GCSE FULL UNIT Trilogy only
rolffantomrolffantom

NEW AQA Magnetism GCSE FULL UNIT Trilogy only

(1)
A fully resourced lesson series designed for the new AQA GCSE Trilogy specification, from an experienced author. Each lesson includes editable and PDF versions of: • Power point presentation • Worksheets with full sets of answers (individually and formatted together as a booklet) • Technician’s sheet (fully resourced and illustrated) • A VLE version of the presentation (with the answers removed) In addition, it includes an optional self-marking Google Classroom Homework for those of you lucky enough to work in a school with Google Classroom set up. Individual lessons in this topic are also available, as well as the full Triple Physics unit. The first lesson “Permanent Magnets” is available free of charge so you can try before you buy. Objectives covered: Lesson 1: Permanent Magnets Describe the attraction and repulsion between unlike and like poles for permanent magnets. Describe the difference between permanent and induced magnets. Recall where the magnetic forces are strongest in a magnetic field, and if magnetism is a contact or non-contact force. Lesson 2: Magnetic Fields and Compasses Draw the magnetic field pattern of a bar magnet showing how strength and direction change from one point to another. Explain how the behaviour of a magnetic compass is related to evidence that the core of the Earth must be magnetic. Lesson 3: Electromagnetism Describe how the magnetic effect of a current can be demonstrated. Draw the magnetic field pattern for a straight wire carrying a current and for a solenoid (showing the direction of the field). State the relationship between the current and the magnetic field strength. Recall how to convert a solenoid into an electromagnet. Explain how a solenoid arrangement can increase the magnetic effect of the current and that this produces a uniform magnetic field. PHYSICS ONLY: Interpret diagrams of electromagnetic devices in order to explain how they work. Lesson 4: HIGHER ONLY The Motor Effect Recall the factors that affect the size of a force on the conductor perpendicular to a magnetic field. Name this as the “Motor Effect” Apply Fleming’s left-hand rule to predict the direction of these factors. Calculate the magnitude of these factors. Lesson 5: HIGHER ONLY The Electric Motor Explain how the force on a conductor in a magnetic field causes the rotation of the coil in an electric motor.

Low Workload High Impact KS4 Physics Marked Work Package

Take hours off your weekly workload! Mark a full set in 30 minutes Given the new ofsted focus on managing teacher workload, there is a shift towards effective marking being done efficiently. The emphasis here is on the students doing the work, and the students making guided progress. This resource covers all of KS4 Physics with structured open tasks and target-based marking. The students complete the work and hand it in. Mark the pile of worksheets by highlighting or drawing a ring around the target you wish the student to do as their response. (You can also do this for any parts of the task the student has not completed, since the task is on the sheet). Return the tasks to the students and project the targets onto the whiteboard for students to do their marking response. I have made the ‘Conservation of Energy’ task available for free so you can try before you buy, and check that your school are happy that this fits in with their marking policy. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/conservation-of-energy-marked-work-task-12197783 The following tasks and mark schemes are included: Energy Conservation of Energy Specific Heat Capacity Comparing Energy Resources Electricity Resistance Write-up Comparing Components Series and Parallel Circuits Step-up and Step-down Transformers Generating Static Charge Particle Model Density Write-up Internal Energy During Change of State Crushing Can (non-triple version) Why Does a Pump Get Hot?

GCSE Edexcel Core and Additional Science Revision Activities

Developed to teach pupils how to revise, and to try new revision techniques, this resource structures each topic and provides the option for pupils to choose which type of revision activity is best for each section of each topic. Instructions for a variety of key revision activities are on the rear of the sheet, so pupils can revise completely independently, given appropriate notes or other stimulus material (see my other resources for activities which result in a full set of notes!). I have included the original publisher document so you can adapt it or create a version for your own subject. The storyboard we use is from freeology: http://freeology.com/reading/storyboard-with-six-boxes/
Marking Sheet
rolffantomrolffantom

Marking Sheet

(1)
A generic resource designed to aid marking. Pupils are prompted to make notes, then produce their final piece of work. Space is then provided for a teacher to write a positive comment and targets for improvement. On the rear of the page is half a page for sticking in to the book and half a page for marking improvements, followed by an improved grade. This structures marking to what ofsted are looking for, and when pupils stick it into their book and fold it over, the first thing an observer sees is the improvement and the new grade, making it easy for them to see your good practice.
