GRADE 10 PHYSICS
10B: Wednesday Periods 7-8
Download and run the electromagnetic lab. Experiment around with it. Make a copy of this Google Doc, share it with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and then complete all parts of it, based on the simulation.
Read Pages 172-175, and answer all questions on page 173 & 175. Read pages 176-177, and answer all review questions on pages 178-179.
10B: Monday 26th November
Finish the work from last time if you haven’t already (particularly the chapter review pages 178-179).
Make a copy of this electromagnetism summary, share it with me and complete it.
Complete the transformers work and “additional questions” on pages 236-238 in “IGCSE Physics” (on my desk).
Complete the IGCSE Physics worksheets (also on my desk).
Note: this is a lot of review questions, but hopefully it helps for the end of the year!
10B Tuesday 27th November
New unit: Energy Resources
Read Pages 58-71 and answer all questions. Pages 58 to 61 may be revision from last year, but this will be a good introduction to the unit and the assignment.
Start the assignment (on my desk and here on my blog). By the end of the class you should have a plan for what you will use to generate the 30GW and where it will be generated (eg we will use wind turbines, and they will be located off Japan’s East Coast).
10C (Thursday 22nd November)
Read Electromagnetic Waves Pages 96-97 (covered last class) and answer questions on page 97.
Read Sending Signals Pages 98-99 and answer questions on page 99.
Read Sound section on pages 100-111 and answer questions on pages 101, 103, 107 and 111. It may help to go through the presentation on my blog, though we will go over it in class when I return.
IGCSE Worksheets (on my desk). There is a page on waves and an optional page with revision questions from last year.
GRADE 8 SCIENCE
8C Science Thursday 22nd November
Please watch this Hereditary clip.
Students should work through the Punnet Squares problems (on my desk). Some of the problems towards the end are a little difficult, but students should ask other students for help, and we will discuss them when I return. A few students have already started (or finished?) them, in which case please go onto these extension questions.
After this, students should work on their debates (a copy should be shared with me).
8C Science Monday 26th November
This class is in M310. Please collect the folder from my desk first.
Use photocopied booklets (distributed, spare copies on my desk) and read through pages 145-149, answer questions 6 and 7 (grey boxes) on page 145, all the questions on page 146, and the questions in the grey boxes on pages 148 and 149.
After that, please continue to work on your debates,. You must be ready to debate on Thursday (29th). You do not need to memorise your speeches, but you should at least be able to read them very confidently. You should also understand your topic well enough to be able to answer difficult questions from your classmates, the teacher and the opposition team.
GRADE 9 MYP PHYSICS
9C Science Thursday 22nd November
Note to cover teacher: the tests will be in my pigeon hole. Please continue with your assignments when you finish the tests (and/or work on the extension questions).
9D Science Monday 26th November
Introduction to Physics: Measurement, the Metric System and Scientific Notation
Read pages 10-15 and answer all questions on pages 11, 13 and 16.
Please use the blue books Physics for the Higher Tier and return them to my desk; we will issue them when I return – thank you.
9D Science Tuesday 27th November
Work through sheets on measuring the density of a microscope slide. Measure it as carefully as you can with a ruler (try to estimate its thickness to fractions of a millimetre). There are spare rulers behind the whiteboard in M301. We will use vernier calipers and micrometers (tools for measuring length more accurately) when I return.
TUTOR Period 8B Tuesday 27th November
Complete this form
. When you finish, please continue to work on your debates. You do not need to memorise your debates, but you should be able to read them very confidently, and be able to answer questions from your classmates and the other team.
