Pressure

Students learn how to calculate the pressure of an object at rest as a compound measure of force and area.  As learning progresses students use algebraic techniques to calculate the force or area when the pressure is known.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate pressure as a compound measure of force and area.
  • Most students should be able to calculate a pressure, force or area when given the other two measures.
  • Some students should be able to convert between metric units of pressure.

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
