The course content provided on the Remote Learning for Students page contains part of our programme of study for year 12 students over the next few weeks. Feel free to share this content with your students. We will also be setting additional tasks using copyrighted textbooks and worksheets, but we are unable to share these.
I am providing two 90-minute lectures per week to my students. These will be finishing off the year 1 content and making a start on the year two content. These lectures will be used in combination with videos set for flipped learing, which will be used as a 'first look' at each topic. The lectures do not need to be watched live.
During the lectures, students are welcome to email me with questions (firstname.lastname@example.org), but questions from my own students will obviously take priority. If you direct the students to watch the lectures, you might find it more effective to get them to ask you questions instead.
The first lecture is already available if you want to check the suitability (see link on student page).
Each lecture will go through key ideas/definitions, example-problems pairs and contain opportunities for students to complete practice questions and ask questions. On occasions, the starting point will assume students have completed some flipped learning work beforehand, although this work will be linked to. By using the flipped learning content we will be able to get deeper into each topic.
Here is an outline of the order in which we will be approaching topics:
1. Connected Particles
2. Exponential Modelling
-- No lessons over the Easter Holidays --
3. Kinematics 2
4. Correlation and Cleanning Data
5. Year 2 content - This will include Functions (domain, range, inverse, composite etc.), Graph Transformations, Modulus Function, Reciprocal Trigonometric Functions, Radians and 2D Forces (with friction).
We are using Adobe Scan to check students work and for occasions where they need feedback. Adobe Scan allows you to use your phone as a document scanner. It takes camera images, tidies up the edges and creates a single multi-page PDF which can be shared by email.
I have created two videos which you can use to better understanding how it works. You can also send them to students to help them get set up. I personally feel that checking student work throughout this difficult period is essential. If we don't check, many students won't 'do'.
The first video covers setting up Microsoft Outlook. This is helpful if students have a college email address so that they don't have to share scans using a personal account.
The second video coveres setting up Adobe Scan.
