GCSE & A-Level Practical Skills Matches A-Level Practical Skills Matches

Data Logging

GCSE Required Practical Activities

The GCSE practical skills matches have been written to show how data logging can be used naturally in many of the GCSE required practical assessments. The matched worksheets have been specifically re-written to follow the format and spirit of the joint examination boards’ handbook of required practicals for the GCSE science qualifications, first teaching in September 2016.Each matched practical has: • An indication of the key practical skills covered • A student instruction sheet

• Teachers / technicians preparation and help, including apparatus list, practical guidance & sample captured data (where appropriate)

PHYSICS

All of the experiments included are matched to the new practical skills assessments that are specified in A-Level teaching from 2015.

Data loggers are an integral part of the Ofqual and government orders. Data logging is embedded in the new specifications created by the English examination boards. This free download document provides: • • • •

• Specific heat capacity • Thermal insulation

• Resistance: Variance in wire (Length & diameter)

• V–I Characteristics: Filament bulb, ohmic resistor, diode and light emitting diode • Acceleration with light gates (mass & force)

• Sound waves: Frequency, period, speed in a solid • Radiation: Leslies cube

Sinksafe is composed of 50mm square modular units which can be connected together to form a platform to cover the base of any sink. It provides a firm cushion to break the fall of glassware and thus prevent loss of equipment. The mesh design allows the unhindered passage of liquids, and the small contact area of the legs prevents retention by capillarity of chemical solutions. The polypropylene construction is suitably chemical-resistant. When used in school laboratories not only is there a cost saving on every occasion a breakage is prevented, but there are also the important safety benefits of avoiding broken glass in the sink or mercury spillage from thermometers.

CARE FOR YOUR JOINTED GLASSWARE

Receiver Adapters

You should avoid using ground-glass joints when dry. Although ground-glass surfaces seal well without the use of lubricants, it is advisable to lubricate them to prevent sticking and breakage. Ground surfaces should be cleaned prior to lubrication as dust, dirt and particulate matter may score the surface and cause leakage.

LABORATORY SAFETY A COMMON-SENSE APPROACH

£3.61 £5.38

£5.45

£5.98

• Don't drop or knock glassware - avoid the bruises that lead to breakage. • Don't use chipped, cracked or broken glassware, it's dangerous and may lead to injury. • Don't mouth pipette. You may inhale a toxic substance, burn your mouth or cut your lip. • Don't leave pipettes sticking out of beakers - an invitation for Chemical spillage or breakage. • Insert tubing carefully. Use a protective towel for your hand and lubricate the tubing. • Dispose of broken or damaged glassware in a designated container. Do not mix with general waste. • Carry large containers carefully, use a bottle carrier. • Clean and rinse glassware very well with deionised water. Leave to dry on a clean, lint-free towel.

Grade-A Porcelain Crucibles. Certificate of production quality management system ISO 9001:2000. Suitable for use both in the lab and also kitchen environments, Jipo laboratory porcelain is the result of many years’ research and specialised experience. It is globally renowned for its high chemical and thermal resisting properties. The bearers of these properties are well developed mullite crystals, not only increasing the softening point but also ensuring both high mechanical resistance and low co-efficient of thermal expansion, the result of which enables the porcelain to withstand high thermal shocks. To assure continued high quality, only the highest grade raw materials are used. The high softening point of laboratory porcelain makes it possible to use glazed articles under suitable conditions at temperatures up to 1100°C +

School Water Baths

A water bath specifically designed M A DE IN U K for School Science Departments. It is built around a Gratnells deep tray and so can be stored in a Gratnells trolley.

Protection against the dangers of bacteria and fungi is of paramount importance. That’s why we’ve created Gratnells Antimicrobial Trays which are treated with antimicrobial additive. This means surfaces need no longer rely solely on wash-downs to guard against bacteria and fungi growth. You get long-lasting protection because antimicrobial surfaces are places where microbes simply cannot survive. The Gratnells Antimicrobial System is the result of our strategic partnership with BioCote, globally recognised as a guarantee of superior antimicrobial performance. All of our antimicrobial products are independently certified for antimicrobial efficacy on a regular basis and can boast a rating of 99.9%. 2053 2054

Oil Objectives

INCLUDED


BioBlue Microscopes Rechargeable LED Optical equipment

The DIN WF 10x/18 eyepieces of the BioBlue mono- and binocular models provide the ideal field of view. The achromatic semiplan 45 mm DIN objectives are parafocally aligned on the 160 mm DIN tubes. When changing the magnification the image remains perfectly in focus and centered. The high precision mechanism of the coaxial course- and fine control combined with the spherical corrected optics enable the BioBlue to produce very sharp images. All models are equipped with a height adjustable Abbe condenser N.A. 1.25 with iris diaphragm and filter holder.

BioBlue stand

The aluminium BioBlue stand has been designed to be very stable. A builtin protection system prevents any damage to the specimen and objective. The BB.4200 has a plain stage with 2 object clamps. All other models have a large 130x130 mm stage with vernier and a integrated mechanical translation stage with 70x28 mm travel range.

LED illuminator Oil Objectives

INCLUDED

The BioBlue is equipped with a 1 Watt adjustable LED illuminator, which produces little if any heat. Besides the low power consumption the internal universal AC power supply makes use of an external vulnerable AC-DC power adapter completely redundant. The built-in rechargeable (3 x AA) type batteries allow a 60 hrs continuous operation of the microscope.

Ergonomic design

A lot of effort has been put into the ergonomical aspects of the BioBlue. A comfortable handgrip enables easy transportation. Ergonomically placed adjustment knobs minimize fatigue during long microscopy sessions. The general shape of the stand has been specifically designed to match today’s standard.

General technical information

The beautifully stylish design of the BioBlue series stands out amongst all other microscopes. The BioBlue has been specifically designed for Colleges and Universities. All BioBlue Microscopes are supplied with a rechargeable LED illuminator that allows up to 60 hours of continuous use. European Manufactured and CE Marked. Code

Morning, I feel the need to say a few glowing words about Christine. Over the past few weeks, and repeatedly, I have been a seriously demanding customer (AQA 6th Form EMPA Practicals are looming!). Many of my demands would be considered to be unreasonable by most suppliers (and quite rightly so!). In the case of Christine, however, she is cool, calm and collected. Nothing is too much trouble, she never gets flustered, she's always pleasant and her efficiency is staggeringly faultless. Best regards Michael Peddie Calday Grange Grammar School

Hi Alan. Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for the quick turn around of the petri dishes. It is very much appreciated!

Blood typing is a method of classifying blood based on the presence or absence of specific proteins, called erythrocytes, on the surface of red blood cells. Blood type, an inherited characteristic, is valuable to know in that it affects medical procedures, such as surgery and transfusions or paternity testing, as well as serving as evidence in criminal investigations. Determining blood type can help provide supporting evidence or eliminate a possible suspect’s involvement in a crime. This activity includes a Teacher’s Manual and Student Guide and Analysis copy-masters. There is enough material for 15 groups. Note: This activity uses Innovating Science Simulated Blood and is safe for classroom use. Kit includes: Blood Typing Trays, 4 Simulated Blood Samples: Victim; Suspect #1; Suspect #2; Crime Scene 1 set ABO/Rh Blood Typing Anti-sera, 1 pack Mixing Sticks 0444

Many thanks. Kayleigh Leavis Science Technician Isaac Newton Academy

Though the use of blood type in a forensic investigation is not enough to prove guilt, it may aid in exonerating a potential suspect. In this activity, students act as lab technicians and assist investigators by examining evidence collected at a crime scene. Students first use a presumptive blood test to determine if a substance on a stained piece of cloth may be blood, and then determine the blood type of a sample collected at the scene. Students then compare their results to those of samples provided from two suspects. Kit contains enough materials for 10 groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copy masters are included.

What Does DNA Look Like?

Cancer Gene Detection

Immortality through uncontrolled cell division is a characteristic of cancer cells. The p53 gene is a tumor suppressor gene which prevents this. Mutations in this gene are present in more than 50% of cancers. Testing people for mutations in their p53 gene can indicate an increased risk in developing cancer. These tests raise intriguing ethical questions for both the individual tested and the family of an individual who chooses to be tested. In this experiment, students determine a pedigree for a family suspected to be carriers of mutations in their p53 genes. A DNA test indicates their likelihood of developing cancer.

Transformation of E. coli with pGAL™ (Blue Colony)

An HIV test detects HIV infection indirectly using an ELISA test against HIV antibodies in the blood. The test works by taking antibodies from the patient's blood and adding them to a microtiter plate coated with HIV antigen. If HIV antibodies are present in the blood, they will bind to the antigens on the plate. This binding is detected with an enzyme-linked secondary antibody that causes a color change upon addition of substrate. In this experiment, your students will perform an ELISA test by coating micotiter plate wells with simulated HIV antigen and then test simulated donor serum for anti-HIV antibodies. For 10 Lab Groups (2-4 Students per Group).

In this experiment, your students can see a blue color change in transformed cells due to the switching on of a gene. The pGAL™ plasmid gives them a blue color due to the production of the ß-galactosidase protein by the lacZ gene. IPTG is not required in this experiment since pGAL™ contains the complete lacZ gene. For 10 Lab Groups (2-4 Students per Group).

Kit includes: instructions, simulated HIV antigens, serum samples, antibodies, buffers, microtiter plates, assorted pipettes and microtest tubes.

Yoy Need: 37ºC incubation oven, automatic micropipettes with tips (optional), pipette pumps, laboratory glassware, distilled or deionized water. 1831

I would just like to say how impressed I was at the speed and efficiency of your service. I rang up to order chemicals at about mid-day on Tues and they were delivered at about 9.00a m the following morning, so not only could the teacher who wanted to do practical work on Thursday do what she had planned, they could also be used first thing Wednesday morning which was an unexpected bonus.

The express delivery charge of £7.99 was also great value for money when some of your competitors are charging £7.50 for standard delivery! Thank you. Yours sincerely, Dave Marshall (Science Technician) Hill House School, Doncaster.

Light Box & Optical Set suitable for KS3+

Physics - Light

An economical metal Ray Box comprises of a die cast enclosure, delivers white light but runs much cooler than conventional incandescent lamp models. It uses the latest cool ultra bright LED technology giving superior white light. Supplied complete with slit plate and its own battery power source (2 x AA size batteries not supplied).

suitable for KS3+

The ray box can be used in a single-ray mode without using the plano-convex lens. However, with the lens inserted (plane face towards the light source), and using the two-slit, three-slit or broad-slit masks, the emergent light can be made to be divergent, convergent or parallel by adjusting the position of the light source in relation to the lens. These facilities enable the ray box to be used in a wide range of optical experiments with transparent flat based blocks, prisms and mirrors. The coloured filters can be used to produce beams of coloured light, but external light levels have to be reduced for maximum effectiveness. This kit is very useful for reflection, refraction, and color mixing experiments. The light box consists of a light source 12 V, 24 W lamp, producing convergent, divergent or parallel beam. On one end, an adjustable cylindrical convex lens (for parallel beam) and on the other end, a triple aperture system for color mixing experiments (lateral aperture are provided with adjustable hinged mirror). All apertures in the box are provided with vertical channels to hold slit plates and color filters. The optical set includes acrylic blocks, set of three mirrors, 2 slit black plates, one with three narrow slits at one end and one narrow slit at the other end. Another black plate with four narrow slits at one end, one wide slit at the other end and set of seven mounted color filters. Supplied with working instructions. Power supply required.

Base measurements: 180 x 65 x 75mm. The light source is mounted under an adjustable lid, designed so that minimum light emerges in unwanted directions.

Power requirement: 12V (AC or DC) connected to two 4mm sockets on the ray box. Light source: 12V, 21W lamp fitted in brass holder with one meter twin flex having banana plugs. Accessories: Plano-convex lens of focal length 75mm; 2 plastic masks with, respectively, one and two thin slits, three thin slits and one broad slit; 7 coloured filters and 1 tri-colour filter, mounted in 50 x 50mm plastic frames; 1 spare 12V 21W bulb. 0527 9527

Crookes Radiometer suitable for KS3+

Comprising partly evacuated glass bulb approx 70mm dia., with contained at its centre a fine pivot which supports four lightweight metal arms. One side of each vane is blackened, the reverse side is white. Infrared radiation heats the black faces of the vanes more than the white, causing a pressure difference on either side of the vanes which drives the vanes round, providing a pleasant visual demonstration of several physical effects. Discussion of the mechanism turning the vanes covers several areas of physics including: thermal radiation and absorption; thermal transfer; air pressure; and momentum of gas molecules. The unit is mounted on a round plastic base.

Radiant Heater- IRWIN

Tinplate box with 130mm sides. The top opening is of 75mm diameter and is fitted with a lid. The apparatus is filled with water maintained at boiling point by a low bunsen flame. Infra-red sensors may be used to compare the relative radiant heat output from each of the four faces which are, respectively, blackened, roughened, varnished and polished.

This is a model of a steam engine invented by Hero of Alexandria in about 60 AD. It represents an early example of a machine that will transform thermal energy into kinetic energy. Hero's engine illustrates transformations of energy & aspects of Newton's laws of motion. The engine operates similarly to a rocket engine. The thermal energy supplied by the bunsen burner (not supplied) is transformed into kinetic energy in the steam jets. These jets possess momentum, & by Newton's third law ('action & reaction are equal & opposite'), give backward momentum & hence backward force to the nozzles from which they emerge. These forces create a turning movement about the longitudinal axis of the glassware & hence the glass apparatus rotates.

The Irwin Radiant Heat source is a compact and safe heat source for NEW LOWER school heat radiation experiments. PRICE It comprises a base and cage containing a custom made infra-red heating lamp of the dull emitter type. This means that it is impossible for a pupil to get an electric shock by prodding it with a paper clip etc. In normal use, four thermometers, one with a blackened bulb, one with a silvered bulb, one with a white bulb and one with a “nude” bulb may be situated around the unit at equal distances and a heat absorption experiment performed. The lamp does not visibly glow as almost all the energy provided is converted into heat. For this reason, a cage has been placed around the lamp to prevent pupils touching it and burning themselves. Height: 215mm, width/depth: 150mm

The simplest way possible to measure 'g' by Free Fall! This innovative 'baseball' allows easy measurement of the acceleration due to gravity at a very cost effective price. The ball contains an integral digital timer, which can display times between 0.01 to 29.99 seconds. Simply hold down the button to zero the display then release the ball from your hand at a known height above the ground. Timing starts when the ball is released and stops when it hits the floor. Although the mechanism is well protected it is advisable to drop the ball onto a soft surface, such as a grassed area or carpeted floor. Maximum vertical drop is about 12 metres, depending on the landing surface.The 'g' ball timer is powered by 2 x SR54 button cells, which are replaceable. Comes complete with batteries. Dimensions (Dia.): 100mm.Examples of experiments using the 'g'-ball:1. Determine the acceleration due to gravity. 2. How high is this ceiling/stairway/ building 3. Release the ball from a certain height. Repeat the experiment from the same height but now throw the ball sideways and compare the results.

Smoke Cell suitable for KS4+

The Hyman Fire Piston demonstrates the rise in temperature when a fixed mass of gas is compressed. A portion of tinder supported inside a transparent cylinder is ignited when the contained air is compressed by a hand operated piston. Repeated compressions without removing the cylinder will show reduced effect as the oxygen is used up. Subsequent decompression of the air inside the cylinder will create a cloud: the reduction in pressure lowers the temperature and immediately condenses the water vapour inside the cylinder.

Hi - just received a delivery. The crocodile clips that have turned up are superb. They are big enough to connect to items bigger than bare resisters and can have 4mm leads plugged into them instead of having to solder. Brilliant! You have saved me a lot of work and they are big enough for the kids to be able to open them. Cheers. Tony

Our thermochromic pigments are made up as a liquid paste compatible with any acrylic media. At normal room temperature the pigment appears coloured, but at 27°C the colour disappears. For example, if black thermochromic pigment is applied to a white surface, the surface turns from black to white at the change–over temperature. Similarly, if the pigment is applied to something orange the surface colour changes from black to orange at 27°C. When the temperature falls, the pigment colouring re–appears. As a guide, mix one part pigment to four parts of acrylic base. 5ml provided in syringe. 2421

Polyox

50g suitable for KS3+ Polyox (polyethylene oxide) is a non-toxic, long-chain polymer with a high molar mass. Because of extensive hydrogen bonding, it is soluble in water. A solution of Polyox (approximately 1% w/v) behaves as an 'elastic liquid' i.e. it 'self-siphons'. If you quickly drag some of the solution from a beaker with a spatula or spoon, it will continue to move out of the beaker. You can even draw it up into a syringe even though the tip of the syringe is above the liquid level. 5g is sufficient to make about 500cm3 of the fluid. Please note: Propan–2–ol is required for use with this item but should be available at most schools. Use of a magnetic stirrer is recommended. 2413

Design and technology as well as science teachers are buying the amazing Ferro fluid – a truly magnetic liquid. This consists of micron size magnetic particles (magnetite) in a mineral oil. Particles are coated in a surfactant which prevents them clumping together. When a magnet is in close proximity the magnetic particles in the Ferro fluid take up the shape of the magnetic field – a 3-D version of the classic iron fillings on a piece of paper experiment that we used to do in schools. The apparent density of Ferro fluid can be changed by applying a magnetic field. E.g. place a one pence piece in a shallow dish (5mm) of Ferro fluid and it will sink. Bring a powerful magnet underneath and the coin will float! Supplied in a plastic jar containing 10ml of Ferro fluid. A rare earth magnet is also supplied. 2420

NiTi Spring

Memory Spring Two Way

suitable for KS3+

suitable for KS3+

These remarkable springs, based on a brass alloy, 'remember' to open up when heated and close again when cool. If immersed in hot water at or around 90°C they will open in a split second and close as quickly if dropped in cold water. Such springs have many industrial applications e.g. in sprinkler and fire damping systems where they replace expensive single-use only fusible links. The spring is 10mm long, extending to 25mm in hot water. 11.5mm external diameter. 9mm internal diameter. Spring weight 3g.

This nickel/titanium (NiTi) spring is made from shape memory alloy. At room temperature this spring is soft enough to pull out to approximately 50mm by applying a small force. When heated to 70°C by passing an electric current through it (or by other means such as hot water or a heat gun, etc), the spring contracts to its original length with a useful pulling force (equivalent to lifting a 0.5kg weight). Spring weight: 1.1g Dimensions:20mm (when closed), 5.5mm external diameter, 4mm internal diameter. 2423

250g suitable for KS3+

NiTi Memory Wire This nickel/titanium (NiTi) alloy initially 'remembers' that it should be straight. If it is bent into a different shape and then dropped in very hot water (90°C), it springs back to its original straight condition. It will repeat this behaviour any number of times. The wire can also be heat treated to remember different shapes. It simply has to be held in the desired shape and then heated to 500°C in a small oven for a few minutes. This means that pupils can now get involved in creating smart springs and other components that a few years ago would have challenged front line researchers. Memory wire has several important medical applications. It is used, for example, to make surgical stents – small woven frames that balloon outwards to open blocked arteries. It is also used for orthodontic braces. Some smart textiles use woven–in memory wire to change the shape (and support) of garments when they reach body temperature. Because it can be heat treated, the potential of memory wire in designing and making is virtually unlimited. 0.80mm Dia. x 1 Metre. 2424

Photochromic Pigment - Magenta 3g suitable for KS3+

These pigments normally have a pale, off-white appearance but in sunlight or UV light they instantly change to a bright, vivid colour. The pigments revert to their pale colour when away from sunlight or UV light. If the pigment is mixed with a binder such as our acrylic base, it can be permanently applied to almost any surface. The more dilute the pigment, the less dramatic the colour change; the mixing proportions are therefore a matter for trial and error but a 50:50 mix is a good starting point. Supplied in a plastic syringe containing 3g of pigment. 2417

Polymorph is one of the most useful materials for model making and prototyping. This polymer has all the characteristics of a tough engineering material yet it fuses and becomes easily mouldable at just 62°C. It can be heated with hot water or a hairdryer and moulded by hand to create prototypes and solve manufacturing problems. Polymorph can be reused simply by reheating it. The material can also be coloured when soft by adding a small amount of food dye. Uses for Polymorph include: • Moulding of handles and orthopaedic aids • Vacuum forming moulds • Moulds for batch producing other mouldings• Prototype mechanical parts • Armatures / frames for models • Inserts for compliant products • Specialised components – e.g. motor mountings • Moulding of complete products – e.g. torches • Joining components together The material is supplied in a self–seal bag. The polymorph is first fused and then the powder is added and worked in mechanically by hand. Although a labour–intensive process, this is about the only one available at present. 2g of colouring is supplied in a plastic pot. 2426

The SEP charge indicator allows for easy rapid investigation of electrostatic effects. When it is moved towards a charged object, one of the LEDs will light up - red indicates that the object is positively charged, and green indicates a negative charge. When a polythene rod is rubbed using a piece of cloth, for example, the green LED comes on when it is brought near the polythene, and red near the cloth. This demonstrates how negative charge has been transferred from the cloth to the rod. Needs a PP3 9V battery (not included). 2409

This premium Van De Graaff Generator, generates very high DC voltages, but is safe to use due to a low output current. The generator features a conducting sphere with a diameter of 220mm. The top of the sphere can be dismantled to reveal the design/workings of the device. Static electricity is produced by a rubber belt and 2 plastic rollers. The bottom roller is powered by a drive belt from a step-less variable-speed 230V motor or a hand crank. There is an earthing socket on the motor housing for a ground connection or for connecting to a separate conducting sphere. Detailed description:

This High Voltage Van de Graaff Generator makes teaching electrostatics exciting! The size of the sphere, the rounded edges of the sphere and the height of the sphere from the demonstration table contribute to the high voltages generated. Its large size, wide belt, long sparks and high voltages make it ideal for use in larger rooms or lecture halls. In addition, the transparent column allows students to see how the system operates. The accessories provide additional opportunities to demonstrate many aspects of electrostatics. This large machine generates up to 400,000 volts under favourable conditions. Spark lengths up to 80mm can be obtained. The machine features a transparent shock-resistant butyrate column that gives a clear view of the wide belt’s operation and a 220mm diameter Aluminium collector globe. 2347
