Put your name on them and hand them in to the Green Tray on Monday.
Here are the Waves Learning outcome questions which will help you through your revision. They can also be found in the Learning outcome section in the Course Material drop down menu. Answers are on here too, but copying from the answers is a pointless activity. Hopefully by completing all of these questions you will have produced an excellent set of revision notes from which to revise.
You can always use these in electronic version to answer the questions but DON’T think you’ll produce one set between you and copy!

A couple of songs for this unit
This is the updated version of the Dynamics booklet, updated to match the 2017 SQA changes.
This one is a joint effort by Miss Horn and Mrs Physics with formatting help from Mr Risbridger.
New in by Melanie Ehsan, with thanks to eSgoil (who provide lots of online materials), the first of a collection of mindmaps.

The materials below I’ve just uploaded from my Intermediate 2 folder and thought some of this might be useful. It’s a quick upload and I’ll sort it out when the rest of the development work is completed (hahaha). Currently I’ve a prelim to write and get copied for two weeks time.
Here are some practice questions with worked answers and 6 to a page diagram of the sky diving graph
Read, make notes and answer the questions in the Summer Holiday Homework booklet (a copy is attached)

Try these and thanks to Mr Williams, hope he doesn’t mind. I’ve made some adjustments. Not sure they’re complete, but can’t you do that!
I recommend you printing them out 8 to a page!
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.
Mrs Physics and Ms Horn are working on the last unit for the N5 course the new Space Topic.
There have been several changes from the previous outcomes. This ought to be the most up to date work.
Sorry I just couldn’t get this to fit on 2 pages. I am sure someone will send it back to me looking beautiful!

I’ve put together, with Mrs Mac’s help, a document with quantity, symbol, unit and unit symbol so that you know the meaning of the terms in the Relationships Sheet. It is in EXCEL so that you can sort it by course, quantity or symbol.

This is a ten week revision plan, put together by Mr A Riddell from “up North”. It will give you some ideas on how to break up the daunting task of revision. NB I’ll need to change this for the 2020 date of 28th April for your exam.
Here is the topic song
Updated November 2019
Electricity 2017 Final word version of the Electricity Unit.
Electricity 2017 Final pdf version.
The booklet is large as it contains lots of questions for you to practice, practicals for you to complete and notes.
They are large notes so that you ought to be able to work your way through whether you are in class or away at college etc.
Please return your copy to the faculty on 30th April 2020!
The section numbers are linked to the compendium with all the things to cover in National 5 Physics.
resistor network Try this when you think you have got to grips with resistances in series and parallel.
AC_DC[1] This is a powerpoint presentation that someone passed to be in the days of SG. It covers AC and DC traces
VOLTAGE DIVIDER FORMULAE The formula sheet for voltage dividers
VOLTAGE divider Q Practice those horrible voltage divider questions with this pdf version of the document below. The answers are given for you to check. VOLTAGE divider Q
Here are some additional notes that might help as you go through the materials. Check out the post on using your calculators to measure resistance (I’ll add the link here when I’ve found the post!)
Ring main Based on the SG course notes and not really in the N5 course, but it might give a little background to why when calculating the fuse rating for an appliance you use 240V and not the 230 V as stated.
EE1 – Electricity LOCKERBIE The old electricity notes (based on a colleagues work thank you and I’ll find out who you are), these will be superceded when the document above is completed.
Elect & elect D&G Prob Book no answers These are some great little questions by Mr Belford from Dumfries Academy, but some of the numbers are a little bit fictional!
Elect & elect D&G Prob Book no answers The above document as a pdf file.
…… to be continued!
This is the document that we will be going through. We wont have time to go through all the material, so you might want to use this as part of your revision. Do start your revision early and be sure to look over some of the ways to revise, I’ll get a link when I can locate it! It the Higher Revision section of the site there is a link to type of learner. Try the learning styles it will help you revise.
