Discovery of the nucleus

Discovery of the nucleus

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.

P12.2 The properties of waves

P12.2 The properties of waves

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.

B10.2 The Human Nervous System

B10.2 The Human Nervous System

This lesson could be easily used for a two hour lesson in which the general structure of the nervous system is introduced as well as how the nervous system works. Students then complete a practical on investigating reaction time and consolidate their learning analyzing the data collected from the practical as well as completing exam questions based on these two lessons.

B3.3_The Chemistry of Food

B3.3_The Chemistry of Food

This lesson firstly introduces students to the various types of nutrients in food and then students are able to complete a research task on the molecules and atoms of nutrients, their monomers and functions. Students then move on to understanding in a little more detail the intricacies of food labels in order to explore how scientists are able to determine the information on these labels. The lessons finally ends with exploring the food tests for starch, simple sugars, lipids and proteins. As an assessment of progress in the lesson, students get to use results collected to determine the nutrient in the food sample.
