This class is beneficial to any students taking their GCSE's, or for younger students who want to get some exam practise under their belts. Either way this session is fantastic at helping students to improve their answering skills.
In this class your tutor will be demonstrating how to rearrange equations seen in GCSE Physics and how to apply this by the substitution of numbers into the equation to solve problems. I will also introduce the rearranging of equations with more than three variables. This topic can be challenging, therefore this class is perfect as a refresher for all GCSE age students.
This class covers the different decay mechanisms that occur during radioactive decay of unstable radioactive nuclei. It describes how alpha, beta (-) and beta (+), neutron and gamma radiation affect the atomic structure and why.
Biology: Transportation of substances through a Plant
In this class we will look at how substances are transported through a plant, such as water through the xylem and sugars through the phloem. We will discuss how to answer longer questions on this subject to gain full marks in exams.
For a session on perfecting your answer to plant responses questions, join us today. First of all we will look at answering longer questions that concern the environmental factors that affect plant responses, such as the direction of root and shoot growth and the role of plant hormones in these tropisms.
Let's practise some exam style questions! In this class we will discuss and demonstrate how to answer longer questions on the digestive system, including enzymes and enzyme production, the products of digestion and the organs involved.
Biology: Adaptations of Plants and Animals for Survival
In this class we will look at the knowledge required to answer exam style questions on the topic of Adaptations for Survival. This will include reducing the risk of being eaten by predators and general adaptations to the environment. Learning how to answer exam questions is an essential skill needed to really excel at your Biology examinations. Laura will provide you with the tools to give a full rounded answer to reach all the marks you need.
Chemistry: Hydrocarbons and Fractional Distillation
In this class we will discuss what a hydrocarbon is and the structural and displayed formula, and understanding how to gain full marks in longer exam questions based on the manufacture of useful hydrocarbons by fractional distillation.
Chemistry: Life on Earth and the Atmosphere Exam Practice
In this class we will look at how to answer questions concerning the development of the Earth’s atmosphere, from its formation until today. We will discuss how life has affected the composition of the atmosphere. Key information and technique to gain full marks is included.
Practical work and demonstrations that have been undertaken in class are assessed in GCSE exams. In this class we will look at key knowledge that is needed to be successful in answering these type of questions and how to gain full marks.
In this class we will look at how the factors of particle size, concentration and temperature affect the rate of reaction in chemical reactions. A commonly addressed question in exams, this class will demonstrate how to gain full marks in longer response questions.
In this class we are going to be talking about exoplanets (planets that orbit stars other than our own Sun!). Upto this point there have now been over 4000 planets that have been discovered orbiting stars other than our own Sun. Most of the planetary systems found do not resemble our Solar System whatsoever and are full of unusual and exotic planets that are stranger than science fiction!
Do you know what the Greenhouse gases are? This class will focus on the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane and water vapour. We will look at how these gases absorb infrared radiation and then radiate energy back to the Earth. We will describe the natural greenhouse effect, which is essential to life on Earth and the ways that humans are enhancing the natural greenhouse effect.
We have all heard about the devastating impact humans have had on planet Earth. In this class we will look at the activities that humans are undertaking that add greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Burning fossil fuels, deforestation and agriculture are all contributing to the concentration of greenhouse gases. We will look at data and graphs to confirm that humans are responsible for this increase. Join Laura in this class to see the facts and interpret the data for yourselves.
One of Physics' most interesting topics is the Solar System. In this class we will look at all the bodies that make up our Solar System, including planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and dwarf planets. We will discuss why Pluto is no longer classified as a planet and the characteristics needed to be called a planet. We will also analyse, how our star, the Sun emits light through nuclear fusion. Join Laura in this fascinating class to discover our solar system.
Nuclear equations are used to show how a nucleus changes element. into a new In this class we will be looking at how nuclear equations are written that display the decay of an atom in a lighter atom via alpha and beta decay. We will look at how to tell which products will be produced using the Periodic table. We will also look at gamma radiation and why this does not lead to a change in mass or atomic number. Join Laura in this fascinating class to breakdown Nuclear Equations.
Climate change is a topic that affects everything and every being on our planet. In this class we will be looking at the how much the Earth has warmed overall to human activity and the climatic effects of this warming. We will discuss how different parts of the globe will be affected differently, such as more intense storms, floods and droughts. We will also see how these climatic changes will impact the lives of people around the planet.
What do you know about the astronomical phenomenon RedShift? In this class, we will look at this fascinating subject and how it has led us to understand that the universe is expanding. Spectroscopy and the explanation of redshift will be discussed. We will also investigate how the amount of redshift can tell us how fast an object is moving away from us and how far away it is.
To excel in Physics there are a lot of equations and formulas for students to learn. In this short session we will focus on understanding and solving the equation for Acceleration that you will need to learn for your Physics/Science GCSE examinations. These 5 minute, short burst classes allow students to practise solving the equations and allows them to excel in their in future learning.
To excel in Physics there is a lot of theory for students to learn. This short session looks at the differences between mass and weight and the fact that mass is the same everywhere in the Universe, whereas weight varies. These 5 minute short burst classes allow students to practise understanding theory and allows them to excel in their in future learning.
To excel in Physics there are a lot of equations and formulas for students to learn. In this class we will look at Newton's second Law and the application of the formula F =ma to forces, mass and acceleration in GCSE physics. These 5 minute, short burst classes gives students the chance to practise solving equations and allows them to excel in their in future learning.
