Energy, motion, inertia and momentum - Learning Outcomes

QCA Unit 71 Energy resources

Identify some common fuels

Identify fuels as sources of light, heat and movement, all of which can be called energy

Use a Bunsen burner safely and recognise the need for eye protection and other safety precautions

Use a thermometer accurately

Make a fair comparison of the output of different flames

Produce a chart which shows Temperature rise from a range Of fuels

Describe how to improve accuracy by repeating readings or by controlling variables more carefully

QCA Unit Unit 7K Energy forces

Identify forces

Use a force meter

Explain the observations they make

Distinguish between mass and weight

Record measurements of mass and weight in appropriate units

QCA Unit 91 Energy & electricity

Recognise that energy is Routinely converted from one form to another in order to be useful

Describe energy transfers in everyday changes

Describe the energy transfers and/or transformations in several toys or devices

Give examples of ways in which energy can be stored

QCA Unit 9K Speeding up

Recognise that in some contexts, comparisons of speed can be made from measurements of time alone

Compare speeds from data of distance and time

Make measurements of distance and time and use these to calculated speeds

Use the quantitative relationship between distance, time and speed in a variety of contexts

Contribute to a group plan

Identify the difference between average speed and speed at a point

Collect readings of speed at a point using data logging equipment

Give examples of situations, in which forces increase or decrease speed

Make simple generalisations

Give examples of air and water resistance opposing motion

QCQ Unit 9M Investigating scientific questions

Suggest questions for investigation

Identify and explain which questions can be answered through scientific enquiry

Describe the different methods used to answer questions and recognise some similarities and differences in the methods used

Justify or challenge conclusion, take in into account the limitations of the evidence produced and the quality of the data or product
