Always a class pleaser when I demonstrate the Rubens tube. Even more fun when we link it up to a student's phone, and they play their favourite soundtrack. Explaining how it works demonstrates how sound travels through the air much better than other ways of teaching.

Aphids in A-Level quiz stirring debate! Some students stumbled over their life cycle and feeding mechanisms under phloem pressure. Not familiar with these intriguing insects? Brush up on your biology! 📚🔬 #BiologyExam #Aphids #AlevelBiology

Variety is what a typical week looks like. For some, there are loads of revision and test papers, while others are investigating Rubens tube, or doing a required practical, making up solutions, or carrying out electrolysis, either online or in person.

When making up solutions - why is the temperature so important. Students made up a solution of NaOH to the correct molarity, then after cooling, they saw that their perfect solutions weren't so perfect after all. Lesson Learnt.

The last two LEDs on the Plancks constant apparatus are in the IR and invisible to the naked eye but easy to see with a phone or a digital camera. Should we use the camera to obtain readings for these values, as the camera might give different weights to the human eye?

Using the #CalculatorPaper as a clever mirror for reflecting calculations! #TechHack #Innovation

Off to the Podcast Show 2023. Last year it was very informative, so going again this year. It appears more extensive than last year, with lots of talks and people to meet.

Explaining to students why the ripples in a ripple tank look the way they do by using a convex lens to show the thicker parts of the wave are lighter because it is concentrating the light and the thinner parts are less white because they are more spread out.

I have been studying with Philip since Year 4 and have just accepted an offer to study Paramedicine at University. I had a difficult relationship with maths when I started with Philip as I had a bad experience with my school teachers and I can lose focus easily. Philip made the lessons so much fun and understood what kept my interest so that it didn't feel like a chore! He has seen me through my triple science and maths GCSEs and now my Applied Science BTEC. I also have interests now in science that I never would have had previously - and he has given me so much confidence! Never thought I would miss lessons - but I will miss his!
