Here, you will find resources for teaching/learning GCSE Physics and A-level Physics.
My main aim is to provide teachers with worksheets and links to on-line resources to enable them to implement a flipped learning approach with their classes, with a minimum investment of time and effort. If you are not familiar with flipped learning, you might like to look here.
If you are flipping your classroom, there are worksheets provided for each topic - I call them 'core tasks'. I would suggest that students are set a core task to complete prior to a lesson. Links to online resources are given so that students can find out about the topic. However, often worksheets are self-explanatory, leading the student through the topic in small steps. When students arrive in class they should have some understanding of the topic. Class time can then be devoted to deepening understanding through peer discussion, whole class discussion, by reviewing the core task, practical work, problem solving, etc.
Alternatively, the materials on this website can be used for student self-study/revision. Personally, I have found the worksheets particularly useful with one-to-one tutoring. Once a student has identified a topic they would like some support with, I will often direct them to complete a core task worksheet prior to a tutoring session. In the process of reviewing their answers, I can identify sticking points and be more targeted with my support.
My focus, up to now, has been on developing materials for A level. You will find some resources in the GCSE section, but they are not specifically designed for flipping. However, I am in the process of developing Google Form quizzes for GCSE, which enable teachers to assess student understanding prior to a lesson. These are available to members only. There are a couple of examples in Mixed resources for GCSE, if you wish to try them out.
LATEST UPDATE (1/18)
All A-level, compulsory topics are completed. Recently added 5.1.4 on Drift velocity (not in AQA spec, but in others). I am now working on the Options topics (starting on Astronomy).
I am also working on Google Form quiz resources for GCSE, which allows the collection of student responses prior to a lesson. Forces unit nearly complete, Electricity more than half finished.
