Learn these Experiment

Thanks to S Gray, Drummond Community High School,  for putting together this book of experiments that you should have covered in your N5 Physics lessons. Any of these could be discussed in your exam as a question.

Assignment Instructions

The first thing that you must do before starting your Assignment is to know what you will be doing, what expectations there are and how you will be writing this up. All of this is contained in the candidate guide below.

I will be uploading some Assignment practical sheets for National 5 Physics. Thanks to the Physics Teachers of Dumfries and Galloway for putting these together.

I think the following experiments would be suitable-

check that:

  1. the theory is in the compendium,
  2. the topic is in the course,
  3. there is a graph of your experiment online or in one of the text books in school. Does your graph contain data ie, are there proper points on the graph or is it a trendline- which do you think is better?
  4. there is theory that you can write about that relates to your experiment.

Remember If you’ve used the results from your experiment to determine further values, you should show at least one sample calculation.

Here is the what you can take into the write-up phase. Collect a polypocket and keep it all in there.

Assignment Investigation Sheets

NOTE: TO ALL TEACHERS, SOME OF THESE EXPERIMENTAL SHEETS GIVE TOO MUCH INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS AND MUST BE ADJUSTED. I AM WORKING MY WAY THROUGH THESE BUT YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK THE SHEETS YOU ARE GIVING TO STUDENTS DO NOT BREACH THE STRICT GUIDELINES GIVEN IN THE ASSESSMENT GUIDE.

The ones with the Boat logo have been updated.

This table has more than one page! These sheets are being edited after feedback! Please bear with me while we sort it out.
