Practical Science for 11-16s: Force and extension
Date: Monday 8th January 2024
Location: Wesley Hall, Crookes, Sheffield.
Time: 10.00 to 12.00 am
Links to Edexcel specification: 1.22 practical: "investigate how extension varies with applied force for helical springs, metal wires and rubber bands".
With a range of student-led investigations, students will explore the difference between elastic and inelastic distortion and see how these terms apply in the real world. They will be supported to conduct an investigation into the relationship between force and extension in springs whilst developing some of the experimental skills that are assessed in IGCSE examinations. They will have the opportunities to learn about Hooke's Law, proportionality, graphical representation of data and the elastic limit and will and receive guidance regarding exam technique and understanding of key words and terminology.
All tasks are carefully differentiated to allow students at any stage of their IGCSE journey to access learning at a level that is suitable to them individually.
Included with your booking:
- Small group (max. 10) tuition and guidance from a fully qualified and exam-experienced (PGCE, QTS) science teacher
