Greetings! I am Mrs. L. Jones.
I was Head of Physics at WGHS in the olden days.... I have taught this A level course (under several slightly different wordings) since before you were born.
My Cyberphysics site is used by an average of 5000 students a day during term time. I started it as a means of communicating background info with my students, notes, solutions to homework, questions, revision lists etc. got added (saving on photocopying!) and it snowballed.
I will use it to communicate with you.... it will provide you with notes and background, but the main advantage is the interactive syllabus.
This page is only linked from the index page - via the dropdown 'Exam Prepapration' Menu.
I shall be tackling Unit 5 with you...
My lessons with you are:
Week A - Wednesday (period 1) in lab S5 and Friday (period 4) in lab S5
Week B - Wednesday (period 2) in lab S5 and Friday (period 5) in lab S5
I am only in school on those days - I am only teaching sixth-form. I do not have a form. It is pointless to put notes for me in a pigeon hole.
Communicate with me in lessons or via e-mail: lJones@wghs.org.uk
I will collect homework in on a Wednesday. I will feedback on it on the following Friday. Homework not handed in on time will therefore not be marked as solutions will have been issued. If you fail to hand in homework three times in a term I will refer you to the Head of Sixth form so that senior management are aware of the problem.
Each Friday (after the third week) there will be timed past examination questions on the sections we have completed (all of them - not just the most recent!). These will colour my view of your progress more than the homework tasks, the completion of homework tasks will colour my view of your effort in the subject.
The proposed program for how we will cover the material is set out below. If you are absent there will be enough information here for you to do some studying at home. You are expected to work through the material as soon as possible. It is your responsibility to ensure there are no gaps in your learning.
If I am absent for any reason I will enter the work that you should do on this page. Therefore there is no excuse that you did not know what to do!
Homework will be set on a Friday and collected in the following Wednesday in class.
Details of homework set will be found on this page on the evening it has been set.
There are two sections of Unit 5 that we have to cover:
Links to A level standard questions can be found on those pages as hyperlinks.
I suggest that when revising you work though the section notes by using the links - you might find a hard copy useful. Then tackle at least one of the questions to see how well you have understood it. Full solutions are there for you.
Be honest with yourself. You have nothing to gain by pretending you can do a section.
If you get full marks on a couple of qustions then it is probably not worth spending more time at this stage on that topic. If you have difficulty look carefully at my solution and try another question.
