This resource is a lesson aimed at teaching the New AQA GCSE Physics course. This lesson is based on Concave lenses, how they work, how images are formed using them and how to calculate magnification.
This lesson has 4 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:
*Describe the main differences between a convex and a concave lens.
*Explain, using ray diagrams, how images are formed using concave lenses.
*Apply calculation to find the magnification of an image using a lens.
*Link your understanding of lenses to draw ray diagrams to explain how Galileo's telescope worked.
This lesson is designed with challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, aimed at getting the most out of the more able students learning the New 9-1 Science course.
Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations will work in your lesson.
