Ideas for simple practical work and problem solving in M1 Mechanics
  • Plymouth University

Save event

This course for teachers aims to provide simple practical and problem solving ideas that can be used with students taking M1 modules in mechanics, as well as a range of concept questions for promoting discussion and testing student understanding. 

All the ideas used will be ones that teachers can take away and replicate with a minimum of equipment and resources. All the delegates will be encouraged to carry out a range of activities. 


  • Session 1: Introducing mechanics 
  • Session 2: Friction, forces and statics, applying Newton’s Second Law and connected particles
  • Lunch 
  • Session 3: Moments 
  • Session 4: Projectiles

The cost per delegate will be £60 for delegates from schools registered with the Further Mathematics Support Programme, or £120 for delegates from schools not registered (registration is free and can be updated via the FMSP website.)

Refreshments and lunch are provided.
