For each statement, use either the suggested website or your own text book to write a 5-point summary. In examinations, answers frequently require more than 1 key word for the mark, so aim to include a few key words. It is important to stick to 5 sentences. It is the process of selecting the most relevant information and summarizing it, that will help you remember it. Write concisely and do not elaborate unnecessarily, it is harder to remember and revise facts from a big long paragraph. Finally, identify 5 key words that you may have difficulty remembering and include a brief definition. You might like to include a clip art style picture to help you remember it.

What is the difference between a vector and a scaler quantity? Website – 1. http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/higher/physics/mech_matt/vectors/revision/3/ 2. https://van.physics.illinois.edu/qa/listing.php?id=14225
1. Scalar quantities have only magnitude (size), examples include distance, speed and energy. 2. Vector quantities have both magnitude and direction, examples include velocity, acceleration and force. 3. Direction can be shown as an arrow, using compass points, an angle, or using terms such as horizontal, vertical and diagonal. 4. An example is when a geostationary satellite is in orbit around the Earth, it moves at a constant speed but the velocity is changing. 5. Another example is when a car is travelling around a roundabout, it is travelling a constant speed but velocity is changing.
Magnitude – Size of something
Vector – Size and direction
Scalar – Just size
Velocity – Example of a vector
Speed – Example of a scalar

Sensationalised news stories have been around for some time, but with the mass growth of social media, the problem seems to have grown in recent years. At the very least, the US Presidential election has certainly highlighted the impact that misleading information can have. www.tiny.cc/fakenews2 At home, the Brexit vote also suffered from the circulation of misleading news stories www.tiny.cc/fakenews3 Therefore, the ability to identify real information, track it back to the source article and make your own judgement is a very important skill. This activity will help you develop that skill.

Scientific Posters Scientists communicate research findings in three main ways. Primarily, they write journal articles much like an experiment write up. These are very concise, appraise the current literature on the problem and present findings. Scientists then share findings at conferences through talks and scientific posters. During a science degree, you would practice all three of these skills. Scientific posters are a fine balance between being graphically interesting and attracting attention and sharing just the right amount of text to convey a detailed scientific message. They are more detailed than a talk and less detailed than a paper. Use this information to help structure your poster – www.tiny.cc/posterskills (that’s Poster Skills not Posters Kill!) More detailed guidance is available at : www.tiny.cc/posterskills2 Creating your poster It is easiest to create a poster in PowerPoint; however, you need to add custom text boxes rather than using the standard templates. Posters need to be eye catching, but readable from a distance. If you use PowerPoint, start with a 4:3 slide (for easier printing, it can then be printed on A3) and use a 14-16 pt font. The first box could be larger to draw people in. You can use a background image, but pick a simple one that is of high quality. Select ‘text box fill’ and select ‘change the transparency’ to maintain the contrast and partially show the picture. You can experiment with different layouts and you should include images. Avoid a chaotic layout, posters are read from top left column downwards. Remember to include the authors and references. Finally, look at the examples given on the University of Texas website which also offers an evaluation of each www.tinyurl.com/postereg
Newton’s First and Third Laws of Motion Background Sir Isaac Newton worked in many areas of mathematics and physics. His first theories were on gravity when he was just 24 years old in 1666. In 1687, he published the ‘Principia Mathematica Philosophiae Naturalis’, it was in this book that he first introduced his laws of motion. Newton’s laws of motion are still relevant in today’s society to explain how objects move. Source articles http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/Newt.html https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/airplane/newton.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKKM8Y-u7ds Use other sources as necessary.
Produce a scientific poster on Newton’s first and third laws of motion, use diagrams to show how the laws relate to objects that are being acted on by forces in different directions and worked examples on your poster.
Write definitions of Newton’s first and third laws using diagrams to support them.
Describe how Newton’s laws relate to objects that are being acted on by forces coming from different directions.
Compare different force diagrams, showing how to calculate the resultant force and how you can use this to comment on the direction and action of the object.
Evaluate how the complexity of resolving the force diagram changes when forces are in straight lines compared to on an angle.
Cornell Notes At A level and University, you will make large amounts of notes, but those notes are only of use if you record them in a sensible way. One system for recording notes is known as the Cornell notes system. This method encourages you to select relevant information, rather than trying to write a transcript of everything said. More importantly, it forces you to spend a few minutes reviewing what you have written, which has been scientifically proven to aid learning and memory retention. The ideal is to write everything on one page, but some students may prefer to type and others will to handwrite their notes. Whichever option you use, remember the aim is to summarise and condense the content with a focus on the objectives that you are trying to learn and understand. There are three main sections to the Cornell notes 1 Cue/ Objectives – This can be done before or after the lecture. You may have been provided with the objectives or you may need to decide what they were or you may want to make the link to your learning if this is an additional task or lecture you are viewing, such as this video. 2 Notes – In this space you record concisely, simply the things you are LESS likely remember - The NEW knowledge. 3 Summary – The most important step that is carried out after the lecture or video. This helps to reinforce learning.
Background The following short video clips present two topics that link to your learning. The first is on Sir Isaac Newton and his work on forces which led him to write his three Laws of Motion. The second video discusses how resultant forces can change for different situations using worked examples.
Source article: Video 1 – Newton’s Laws Crashcourse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKKM8Yu7ds&list=PL8dPuuaLjXtN0ge7yDk_UA0ldZJdhwkoV&index=5 Video 2 – Resultant Forces Doodle Science: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRwq8cRCko0
Task: You need to produce a set of Cornell notes for the videos given above. Use the following objective to guide your note taking, this links to your learning. 1. Discuss Newton’s work and how it links to his three laws of motion. 2. Discuss resultant forces.
