So, next week I go on prac (aka. practical experience / placement) for 3 weeks!!! I have spent almost the entire school holidays prepping like a boss and not only have I written a butt-load of lesson plans I have also taken the time to make sure my Portfolio and Class Planners look 100% amazing.
This year (inspired by my wedding theme.. tropical cocktail (incase you were wondering)) I have decided to go with a baby pink, green leaf, flamingo scheme.
I bought 5 plastic display folders to use as my Class Planners (essentially a place to store my unit overview, lessons plans and student resources) and created an individual cover for each. As an example this is what the cover for my Year 12 Physics class looks like:
The covers for my remaining classes look identical, the only difference being the class details. ..
The Class Planner covers I designed using Canva (a free online program which is great for making covers, posters, website headers etc.). I made the design public so anybody can copy and edit the original to suit their own needs – you will need to have a Canva membership and be logged in.

After I had created my Class Planners, I designed the cover pages of my Portfolio binder to match…

So these are my summary notes on Magnetism. I didn’t include any examples but the concept is pretty simple and it kind of just ties in with all the other topics we studied this semester so it should be fine. However if you need any more clarification or you’d like an example sheet drop me a line in the comments and I’ll make one up 🙂
So despite the crazy cyclonic weather we are having in North Queensland at the moment I still managed to pump out this summary. It is the biggest one I’ve had to do to date and the topics covered are definitely icky .. so if you’re having any dramas or if you need clarification leave me a line in the comments and I’ll see what I can do 🙂
When my professor told me how electric charge was measured I was like Watt! It made me ex-static and shocked to find out how easy it is to calculate Coulomb’s Law. You can do it easily in the comfort of your own Ohm.
Ok that’s it for my thinly-vieled attempts at electrical themed humour..
Revision notes on Electric Charge and Electric Field – as always any questions just drop me a line in the comments section 🙂
Today’s focus is Sir Isaac Newton… the closest thing the physics world has to a rockstar ❤ I’ve included a summary of Newton’s Laws below and just for fun here are my top 3 fun facts about this telescope-inventing, apple-catching genius.
Sir Isaacs mum wanted him to be a farmer but he rejected this career path and even failed his ‘farming exams’
He owned more books on historical subjects than on science
He actually had a Law Degree and was even elected as a member for Parliament for the university in 1700 – but he only held this post for a year.
Bonus Fact: Newton was known for having a massive set of cranky pants that he was constantly causing drama. He had two nervous breakdowns and after his mum died in 1678 he went into a state of withdrawal – basically locking himself away – and only communicating with the briefest of notes.
Okey dokey so here you go… a brief summary of Newton’s Laws. I included some revisionary material in this summary (dot product, conservation of mechanical energy etc.) but hopefully I should have full summary sheets done up for these topics soon.
