Unit 1  Energy & Motion
free
simulations, worksheets, videos, images, animations and more.


Single stage energy transfers, and ideas about useful and wasted
energy.






Multistage energy transfers.





Planning an investigation into how drop height affects bounce
height.






Collecting data, graphing and analysis of the practical.





Methods of generating electricity, including renewable and
nonrenewable resources.






More about electricity generation, including how conventional power
stations work, and ideas about environmental effects.





How do we measure speed? Covers ideas about units of
measurement and relative motion too.






How do we calculate speed? Includes rearranging a formula,
using an equation triangle.





Practical work, investigating the speed of a lego car.






Consolidation activities, covering ideas about speed and energy in
the context of pendulums. Includes examples of Newton's cradle
and a wave pendulum.





Lots of revision materials, worksheets and more!
Includes a complete summary sheet for the module.






Testing, target setting and more. Coming soon.

The first half of this module encourages students to
explore their ideas about energy, and introduces key concepts required
to describe the energy changes which take place in simple devices.
Methods of generating electrical energy are also explored. The second half looks at students' ideas about
speed, and investigates
how speeds can be measured and calculated.
You will also find a lesson on
pendulums, which
is optional, but could be used to consolidate ideas about
energy. There is page of
revision materials and
activities to choose from, which can be set as additional
homeworks or extra extension tasks.
