An Italian Feast

This resource for Key Stage Three and Key Stage Four students provides some statistics about the eating habits of children in Italy and asks students to compare and contrast these with their own eating habits. Through this activity, students have to interpret charts and graphs, plan how to collect data and design a...

How Much Have You Grown Today?

This resource uses height data from the pilot of CensusAtSchool to encourage Key Stage Three and Key Stage Four students to investigate growth. They are asked to draw conclusions using both calculations and graphs and also consider other factors affecting growth. Students develop skills in interpreting tables,...

How Old?

Using the data from CensusAtSchool 2006/2007, this data analysis resource looks at trends in life expectancy in populations. Students consider both the primary data collected from CensusAtSchool and secondary data about life expectancy and major causes of death. A plenary asks students to consider what they have...

Let's Compare Feet!

This resource contains a starter activity in which Key Stage Four which explores data analysis and what conclusions can and cannot be drawn from scatter graphs. This can be used to discuss correlation, trends, continuous and discontinuous data, extrapolation and lines of best fit. 

Thanks for the Memory

In this activity, students investigate the three main types of memory - sensory, short-term and long-term. An explanation is given for each one and linked to a memory experiment. Students are also given five memory tasks to complete which include looking at factors that affect peoples' memories and ways in which to...

What Happens to Your Empty Drinks Cans? *suitable for home teaching*

Using real data from CensusAtSchool 2000/2001, this resource explores issues around the disposal or recycling of the empty aluminium cans in schools. Students discuss the issue, calculate statistics, draw graphs and look further into what happens to empty cans in their own school.

An introduction to waves

This video provides an introduction to waves which looks at the differences between types of wave.  It would make a good revision video which discusses mechanical and electromagnetic waves with examples of each, with how particles and fields fit into the topic.  They presenter also demonstrates the difference...

Conservation of Mechanical Energy

This video demonstrates how the gravitational potential energy of a skateboarder is converted into kinetic energy as they move down a ramp.  It discusses efficiency and how you can calculate the energy mathematically at both stages.  It also ties into SUVAT and demonstrates how an objects acceleration due to...

Derived Units

This video for a-level and GCSE high ability students looks at how we derive units.  It looks at why speed can be measured in m/s and then goes onto to look at the units for force using F=ma and also why we use Joules for energy.  It also discusses the seven main base units and how all units are derived from these...

Distance -Time and Speed

With this a-level video tutorial, the presenter talks about how we get the equation speed = distance / time and then looks at the differences between a distance / time and a speed / time graph.  It also demonstrates what the area under the graph represents as well as the gradient.  This can be followed by the...
