- Get to know the course, content and expectations
- Begin to understand Uncertainties, and how to quantify them
- Revise Higher work
- Get into a routine of expectations, good work routine, how to self study, how to seek help
- Review calculus and its role in AH physics.
- Begin to get to grips with section 1 in the compendium.
- Begin to investigate a possible project idea.
- Score 90% in the quick quiz (If I can find out how to make them up!)
- Have a good understanding of your part in obtaining the best grade you can
- Start to make notes on compendium section 1.
- Have set up a learning routine for Project, Learning, Notes etc.
NB You do not have to do these in any particular order, although it would be easier to do some before the others!
- If possible download and print off the AH Compendium, relationships sheet and data sheet. If not can you download it in an editable form online
- Log into Scholar and check it out. I hope to be using it this year, so I’ll need a refresher too. The notes and questions can be a little awkward but it is a good background. Note there is a SCHOLAR introduction session on 6th May that I recommend you signing up for. Log in through your GLOW LAUNCHPAD
- Check out Mrsphysics AH section and familiarise yourself as to where to find things.
- Check other websites in the list that I am trying to make up on RESOURCES. I am trying to match this to the compendium but the IoP have been working on this for you too. https://mrmackenzie.co.uk/advanced-higher/
- Watch the video on Mr Mitchell’s introduction to AH Physics
- Watch the video on Mr Mitchell’s Units, Prefixes and Scientific Notation
- Watch the video on Mr Mitchell’s Significant Figures
- Watch the video on Mr Mitchell’s Greek Letters
- and one more watch the video on Mr Mitchell’s Use of Calculators
- Read the course content (course support notes)and the project and see if any of the potential projects takes your fancy.
- Get something to make notes in or on, if you don’t have access to a source of paper let me know by GLOW email. You need a jotter for notes, something for tutorials and a daybook for your project.
- Complete the Higher questions and see how many you can do without using your book.
- Read the document on Calculus (pdf) / Calculus (word) and work through that. There are homework questions for you to tackle in there. You will be marking these next week.
