This session is part of the IOP DOMAINS online CPD programme. Exponential relationships are all around us and are probably more common in the natural world than linear relationships. It is also the main maths topic that post-16 physics students will not have studied at pre-GCSE level. This maths is essential for several topics in post-16 courses and yet it is often given only a brief amount of teaching time in the classroom. It is worth dedicating a few lessons to explore this maths topic in a physics context before teaching the associated physics. In this session we will look at ways to approach the teaching of this topic with both paper and practical exercises, taken from physics and from the natural world around us.
We will also reflect on some of the Post-16 DOMAINS CPD videos and would encourage you to watch some before the session if you can. If there any specific issues that you would like to discuss during the session, please list them in the “additional requirements” box when booking to attend and we will do our best to address them. Alternatively, please feel free to bring along any questions you have.
Who is this event suitable for?
This event is for all those teaching KS5, or age range 16+, physics and will cover key areas within the secondary and post-16 physics curriculum.
Experienced IOP coach David Farley from the North West regional team will host the session and will be there to expand on the content, answer your questions and provide support.
