The @pascoscientific thermometers are probably one of the most useful items of kit that we have. Used virtually every day in one experiment or another, they are more unbreakable than the glass analogue ones, and the students can read the values. What is there not to like.

Solving Quadratics using the formula on paper as a surd and then converting the answer to a decimal in the calculator, using the formula typed into the calculator, or using the polynomial solver. I teach all three and let the students decide the most appropriate to use when needed.

Using a Tellurium to demonstrate an eclipse. Why doesn't an eclipse happen every month, and how the moon's phases work. Being able to see the moon's orbit and then the size to scale dispels many of the students' preconceived ideas of space.

Translation of RNA to Proteins is one of the hardest concepts and mechanisms for students to understand. Using the @Molymod molecules, the students can visualise and play with the models to improve their understanding.

Dependent variable is the variable of which the value is measured for each and every change in the independent variable.
Independent variable is the variable for which values are changed or selected by the investigator

Computing understanding Boolean logic gates. We created an adder using some logic software and turning tumbles, as well as creating the circuit using a BBC Microbit controlling physical chips to light LEDs - at this scale, a computer chip would be miles across.

Which candle will go out first when we put the beaker on top? Is it the volume of the stacking candles making the flame go out, or is it the height? Height made a difference. The high candle always went out first with the same volume used up. Why might that be? All big problems for year 8 chemis...

Using the @Pascoscientific drop counter with the Chemistry sensor, the pH sensor, and the temperature sensor to determine the changes when an Acid reacts with an Alkali.

Getting in plenty of Maths Practice. The best way to improve at Maths is to do lots of practice. I have many papers that go back over 40 years, although some of my A-level students struggle with the oldest O-level papers.

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!
