This is a great resource to support the teaching of electricity at A level. Each topic has background information and key terms explained as straight forward as possible which will be a benefit to many students as electricity is a topic which can easily become overwhelming.
As a teacher, it will save me time by not having to go through each example on the board, I can offer more individualised support to students where necessary.

This is a highly comprehensive pack which covers every area in mechanics as well as further mechanics. This is a great resource to support students as they move through these topics. Each section is broken down nicely and follows a familiar pattern, of theory, examples and practice questions, with the answers being included at the back. It’s very easy to follow.
I like the worked examples which have comprehensive working out step by step, this saves time and is helpful for students.
Students can use this as a revision guide, alongside their usual notes and resources. This is particularly helpful for periods of independent learning or revision. Students can self-assess their performance and then take time to work through the section of this booklet that relates to this topic. The comprehensive examples will help to build confidence and there is a substantial amount of practice questions. The theory is broken down into simple steps making it easier to understand and easy to transfer over to flashcards.
