The resources in this collection support the teaching of the following key concepts in the topic of forces:

  • What forces do

  • Describing forces

  • Balanced and unbalanced forces

  • Friction

  • Energy stores and transfers

These resources are part of the BEST collection , which provides diagnostic questions, response activities, suggested teaching sequences, information on misconceptions and progression maps for key concepts in physics, chemistry and biology.

Resources

Energy Stores and Transfers

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Understand that when a force makes things change it mechanically transfers energy between different energy stores.

  • Understand that friction transfers energy...

Describing speed

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Identify an object that has a higher speed because it travels further in a given time
  • Identify an object that has a higher speed than another when they travel different distances...

Motion graphs

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Read values of distance or time off the axes of a distance-time graph for a plotted point
  • Describe the changes to an object represented by a move from one point on a distance-time...

Changing motion

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Calculate the size and direction of the resultant force of two forces acting along the same straight line
  • Describe how quickly the speed of an object can be changed if acted on by...
