HOMEWORK

For Friday 15th November,

Finish the question on POTENTIAL DIVIDER circuits in the ELECTRICITY BOOK. NB, these Questions are also given in the LOQ so you can answer them on paper and keep your notes up to date.

the OCTOBER ASSESSMENT, including where you went wrong and how you can correct this.

Assignment Starters

On www.Mrsphysics.co.uk/n5 Physics notes -> Assignment there are some Starter Questions. You MUST go through these carefully. The better prepared you are by looking over these questions the more likely you are to do well in the real thing.

Homework N5 Starters

This homework is a great introduction to the N5 Assignment, which is worth 20% of your exam.

National 5 PHYSICS Assignment starters

Answer the following Questions from the Understanding Standards website

https://www.understandingstandards.org.uk/Subjects/Physics

It is important that you spend an adequate time on this homework (an hour is advised). If you complete this thoroughly you ought to have a good grasp of what is required for the Assignment at National 5.

  1. List the twelve experiments that have been given as examples for the N5 Physics Assignment.
  2. In the marking instructions for the assignment how many marks are available for the underlying Physics?
  3. What are the six sections in the data collection and handling (and I don’t want 4a, 4b, 4c and 4d! BTW it isn’t even section 4)
  4. Section 3e and 3f refer to literature and sources. How do you achieve these marks?
  5. What are the marks awarded for when plotting your graph?
  6. What must your conclusion be related to, to achieve the mark?
  7. For candidate 1, how many repeats of the experiment did they make?
  8. What did candidate 1 do correctly for the graph and what was incorrect?
  9. Mark Candidate 2’s evidence thoroughly yourself using the marking scheme and compare your answer to the commentary. Record your results and the comparison. Comment on both of these.
  10. CHOOSE a topic that would be suitable using the Physics Compendium https://mrsphysics.co.uk/n5/ Research some Underlying Physics and find a suitable graph that you can try to replicate.

Assignment Research: Complete the Research phase of your assignment

Christmas Holiday: Do enjoy the holiday season and have a relaxing and fun time, but you can’t afford to stop working over the whole of the holiday. We still have 3 units to complete, Radiation, Space and Properties of Matter as well as the Assignment.

Your prelim will be just after Christmas too and will cover the 3 units we will have completed plus work on experimental techniques etc.

HOMEWORK for NOVEMBER

If you work with up to 2 other people say who you are working with. If you are copying from two other people that makes a mockery of doing this. If you know about an absence you can get ahead. If you’re sick you can catch up! Excuses not accepted.

Week 1: 14/11/17

On the Past paper section of this site, open the document from the N5 exam paper table  that says “Read this First”.  Enlarge the document and skim read the boring pages at the beginning. Then take each response to each area and decide how you would mark it. Give your reasons. Compare to the Instructions to Markers. Hand this in on Tues 14th November.
