This download includes a detailed lesson plan and a PowerPoint to aid the delivery of a lesson on Vectors and Scalars.
There are 7 main slides and then 3 slides that give a worked example of questions from the AQA textbook if you use it. Consider the price to be for the 7 slides and the additional 3 slides to be free when purchasing.
Addition of vectors by calculation or scale drawing
Calculations will be limited to two vectors at right angles Scale drawings may involve vectors at angles other than 900
Resolution of vectors into two components at right angles to each other
Examples should include components of force along and perpendicular to an inclined plane
Problems may be solved either by the use of resolved forces or the use of a closed triangle
Conditions for equilibrium for two or three coplanar forces acting at a point. Appreciation of the meaning of equilibrium in the context of an object at rest or moving with constant velocity
