Inverse square law- BTEC Applied Science

(0)
This lesson is based on the inverse square law for Applied Science (Extended Certificate). It introduces the idea of attentuation which forms some of the basis for understanding the mathematics behind the equation for the inverse square law. It also includes main activities such as a demonstration in case practical equipment is not available to explore this concept, presenting results in a graph and calculations using the two equations required in for this lesson. Mark schemes for each activity as well as hints for calculations are also provided.

This resource could be used for the second or third lesson in P12.2. The first activity focuses on the simple mechanics of the wave equation and then gives students an opportunity to complete relatively simple worded problems to build confidence. A quick multiple choice plenary is also provided for quick assessment of student’s progress at the end of the lesson. There is also a focus numeracy skills such as conversions and formula rearrangement to further support students.

This resource is an introduction to electrolysis for a lower ability group. It firstly introduces students to some key terms in electrolysis and then what this process entails.
P12.6 Uses of Ultra sound
sporobolo19sporobolo19

P12.6 Uses of Ultra sound

(0)
This resource may be used for a low to mid ability. It firstly gains their interest using a 2d image to begin a discussion and explores how ultrasound (echos) are ultimately used to produce prenatal scans
B10.3 The Reflex Actions
sporobolo19sporobolo19

B10.3 The Reflex Actions

(0)
This third lesson in the B10 series begins with describing voluntary or involuntary actions OR the ‘Importance of reflex actions.’ The main part of the lesson allows students to carry out tests to record the causes and effects of the reflexes in the table, and suggest why they are important to the body. They then explore the reflex arc using a video introduction, label a diagram of the reflex arc and include descriptions/ annotations. The plenary ‘reflex key words’ gets students to match each part of the reflex arc with its definition. and then arrange the parts of the reflex arc so they are in the correct order. Homework for this lesson is of exam questions on the reflex arc and mark schemes for activities are included.
P8.2- Forces Between Object
sporobolo19sporobolo19

P8.2- Forces Between Object

(0)
The lesson has an option of 2 starters to introduce students to the concept of the effect of interaction of forces on objects. This is then followed by the two types of forces, examples and when these forces occur. The main lesson is also divided into two sections. Firstly, students are introduced to the nature of forces (through Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion) using some examples of force pairs; thereby establishing that forces are vector quantities. This is then followed by students completing of an activity to consolidate these ideas (types of forces, nature of forces and force diagrams). There is also an option of two plenaries where students have an opportunity to demonstrate key concepts covered in this lesson.
Year 7- Gas Pressure worksheet
sporobolo19sporobolo19

Year 7- Gas Pressure worksheet

(0)
For this worksheet, students complete particle diagrams as a liquid is heated then cooled. Students also include a description of each diagram. There are two versions of this worksheet based on the ability of students. The mark scheme is also included.
Activate 2- Using Electromagnets worksheet for Year 8
sporobolo19sporobolo19

Activate 2- Using Electromagnets worksheet for Year 8

(0)
Year 8 students can watch a series of videos to support their completion of the worksheet. As the teacher, you can give students the option to complete the gapfill or complete their own explanation of the use of electromagnets in the three devices once they have watched the video; (alternatively, students can use the AQA Activate 2 textbook to complete this task). An answer sheet is also provided.
3.1.4 Pressure
sporobolo19sporobolo19

3.1.4 Pressure

(0)
The resource explores the how a knowledge of pressure may be used do things such as breaking and scratching objects. It also explores why objects are able to float, or sink on state of matter such as liquids.
Discovery of the nucleus
sporobolo19sporobolo19

Discovery of the nucleus

(0)
This lesson draws on the familiar concept of how pole in magnets behave when their magnetic fields interact before relating this to the charges of subatomic particles and their behavior when in contact. Students then compare the Plum pudding model and nuclear model of the atom before getting an overview of the alpha particle scattering experiment. The lesson then closes with students understanding what the evidence from this experiment reveals about the structure of the atom and nucleus.
B10.5 The Eyes
sporobolo19sporobolo19

B10.5 The Eyes

B9.4 Metabolism and the liver

(0)
As a starter, students complete group work to share ideas about the reactions that occur inside living organisms or they may discuss why alcohol consumption could lead to liver diseases. Following this, students gain an understanding of metabolism is and learn about the main reactions in the human body. This is further extended by group reactions as catabolic and anabolic. The main part of the lesson then allows for some creativity where in groups, students find out more details about the reactants and products of one assigned reaction either as an animation, storyboard and script or cartoon strip showing the reaction assigned to your group (pair). There is also two plenaries from which to choose. For homework, students firstly explore the roles of the liver in terms of , for example, eliminating the oxygen debt AND complete further reading and summarisation the link between the the popularised high protein diet and urea concentration in urine.
