From the Institute of Physics, this resource provides extensive teacher guidance and suggested classroom activities to support the teaching of:
• Paying for getting things done
• Shifting energy between stores
• Energy resources and pathways
• Calculating energy everywhere
• Warming and cooling
Each topic is explored from the following perspectives:
• The physics narrative explains the physics of the topic using text, diagrams and video clips and could be used as a resource in the classroom.
• The teaching and learning issues explore some of the student misconceptions and challenges when teaching the topic.
• The teaching approaches describe suggested activities for the classroom, incorporating equipment lists.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
