Moderating Resources

Hot off the press, I’ve just worked out the cutoff scores for each grade at each level. Here it is.

As part of the moderation process we’ve got some fake student scripts.

I have not done a definitive marking instructions but I believe the person who sat this paper, a Drew Escutcheon, has made some sneaky errors to look for.

Answer Grid

Thanks to Mr C Rossi so making a marking grid for you to add your answers. When we’ve got a finalised MI I’ll publish a commentary with a password so you can’t cheat!

Extracurricular Activities in STEM

This is a video of an IoP Coaching Session that I took part in on 27th October 2020 trying to inspire teachers to grasp the opportunities that are available for them and their students.

AH Uncertainties

This is a presentation I gave on AH Uncertainties for the IoP. It was the end of term and that’s why I am nearly falling asleep. I had to update it as I had indeed taken the absolute and not fractional uncertainty in T to double for the uncertainty in T2.

3 States of Matter

3 States of matter in one tube from Mrs Physics on Vimeo.

Thanks to Adam P for holding the camera as I did this demo. It shows so much Science in one large boiling tube! Convection, lack of conduction, state of matter, floating and sinking, density! Hope you like it.

The gauze is there only because the ice floats on the water and the ice needs to be at the bottom for the experiment to work.
