Hooke's law worksheet

(0)
This is a worksheet designed to deliver over one lesson to high ability students. There is plenty of independent practice on Hooke’s law calculations, and include challenges like rearranging the equation & unit conversions.
Short circuits practical (scaffolded!)

Short circuits practical (scaffolded!)

(0)
My students struggled to understand why components didn’t work if there was a short circuit across them. I got them to complete this practical to help solidify their understanding. Circuit diagrams and images mean that this is suitable for low ability groups too. This worksheet is part of a fully resourced lesson: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/circuits-practical-short-circuits-ks3-full-lesson-12144108
Energy revision sheet (Physics paper 1)

Energy revision sheet (Physics paper 1)

(0)
This sheet is part of a collection of revision sheets for paper 1: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-physics-paper-1-revision-sheet-combined-science-12140015 For a full lesson revising paper 1: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/physics-aqa-paper-1-revision-lesson-fully-resourced-12144162 Separate revision sheets for Physics paper 1 can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-separate-physics-paper-1-revision-sheet-12140017
AQA separate physics paper 1 revision sheet
science_doctorscience_doctor

AQA separate physics paper 1 revision sheet

(0)
This is a resource designed to take between 1-2 lessons. It consists of 4 pages of notes on the separate physics content in paper 1 (mainly fission, fusion, static charge and pressure in gases) This does not contain everything that you need to know for the separate physics content in paper 1, but is designed to be a very good start. My students really enjoyed this task, and it’s deliverable to higher/middle ability groups mainly (although lower ability groups can be supported through it). I usually print this 2-up on A3 paper so that it’s kept succint to one (large) page!
AQA Physics  paper 1 revision sheet (combined science)
science_doctorscience_doctor

AQA Physics paper 1 revision sheet (combined science)

(0)
This is a resource designed to take between 1-2 lessons. It consists of 4 pages of notes on the four paper 1 topics (energy, electricity, particle model of matter and atomic structure) each followed by an exam question to check for understanding. This does not contain everything that you need to know for paper 1, but is designed to be a very good start. My students really enjoyed this task, and it’s deliverable to higher/middle ability groups mainly (although lower ability groups can be supported through it). I usually print this 2-up on A3 paper so that it’s kept succint to one (large) page! For a full lesson including this resource & a powerpoint, see here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/physics-aqa-paper-1-revision-lesson-fully-resourced-12144162
Elastic potential energy worksheet (high ability!)
science_doctorscience_doctor

Elastic potential energy worksheet (high ability!)

(0)
This is a 4 page worksheet that I usually print 2-up on A3 paper, it can be used for between 1-2 lessons. This is designed for high ability students & later questions involve converting between EPE and other forms of energy. The worksheet consists of core notes, worked examples and independent practice. For the multiple choice questions I usually get students to hold up between 1-4 fingers (for options A-D). This allows me to check for understanding quickly.
Density worksheet KS3 (scaffolded!)
science_doctorscience_doctor

Density worksheet KS3 (scaffolded!)

(0)
This is a worksheet aimed at KS3 students to independently practice density calculations. The worksheet is scaffolded, with the scaffold gradually removed as students progress through the worksheet. Also suitable for a low ability KS4 class.
Specific and Latent heat worksheet
science_doctorscience_doctor

Specific and Latent heat worksheet

(0)
This is a resource designed for high ability students & is for independent practice for latent and specific heat calculations. The last few questions get pretty tricky. The worksheet is designed for one lesson.
Half-life calculation worksheet
science_doctorscience_doctor

Half-life calculation worksheet

(0)
This is a differentiated worksheet (with basic, medium and hard questions) on half life calculations. The hard questions get pretty tricky and are suited for a high ability group.
Energy transfer worksheet (differentiated!)
science_doctorscience_doctor

Energy transfer worksheet (differentiated!)

(0)
This worksheet gets students to independently apply their knowledge of the following equations. E = P x t E = Q x V This resource is differentiated with basic, medium and hard questions and so is suitable for a mixed ability group.
Pressure worksheet KS3 (scaffolded!)
science_doctorscience_doctor

Pressure worksheet KS3 (scaffolded!)

(0)
This is a worksheet aimed at a KS3 level, giving students independent practice of pressure calculations. The worksheet is scaffolded with the scaffold slowly removed as students progress through the worksheet.
Kinetic energy resource (high ability!)
science_doctorscience_doctor

Kinetic energy resource (high ability!)

(0)
This is a resource that is designed to take between one to two lessons. It consists of the key notes, worked examples and independent practice. This is definitely more suited for a high ability group, and later questions include conversions between KE and GPE. I print these sheets 2-up on A3 paper, and for the multiple choice questions I get the students to hold between 1-4 fingers up close to their chest for options A-D. This allows me to check for understanding quickly.
Multi-step calculation questions (paper 1 physics AQA)
science_doctorscience_doctor

Multi-step calculation questions (paper 1 physics AQA)

(0)
This is a worksheet for the tricky multi-step calculations in AQA physics paper 1. This is definitely designed for a high ability group. I print this 2-up on A4 paper, and have designed the sheet so that students can get hints on the back of the worksheet (as some of these really require some thought). This is a resource that should take 1 lesson to complete.
