GCSE Working Scientifically: Physics
Badger GCSE Science Working Scientifically: Physics
Dr Andrew Chandler-Grevatt & Dr Deborah Shah-Smith
GCSE Working Scientifically: Physics activities for GCSE Physics from Badger Learning support the National Curriculum and were developed by teachers to give colleagues a range of resources to use in teaching GCSE Physics through the Working Scientifically principles. Suitable for use in all schools, whichever exam board they use, with the activities working well as an 'add on' to any of the KS4 programmes of study.
The activities in GCSE Working Scientifically: Physics, one book of a series of three, are designed to improve knowledge and understanding of Working Scientifically. Featuring over 60 information sheets and activities, this book furthers background knowledge and helps students to consider evidence from a range of contexts and make a decision. Many learners do not have the necessary background knowledge about scientific issues, making it difficult for them to discuss the issues and form an opinion. This valuable GCSE Physics resource encourages students to consider a range of viewpoints and make an informed decision.
With most tasks having differentiation suggestions for mixed ability, the activities encourage an understanding of Physics in the classroom. The activities take a range of forms to help focus the students on the nature of evidence or facts in the context of this activity to inspire discussion. Activities include: data analysis, graph drawing, predicting activities and card sorts. Each activity has also been given an allocated time to help efficiently plan lessons and homework tasks.
Written by teachers, for teachers, the GCSE Working Scientifically series provides support for science teachers while encouraging students. Dr Andrew Chandler-Grevatt is an experienced science teacher and ex-Advanced Skills Teacher. He is the author of a number of best-selling Badger Science resources and a teaching fellow at the University of Sussex. Dr Deborah Shah-Smith is an experienced science teacher, who has a keen interest in developing resources using practice-based evidence.
