Half life, radioactivity and decay. half-life graphs, half-life maths. Complete lesson.
A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS4 / GCSE lesson from Barclayfox.
This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do not need to spend many hours carefully planning, creating, resourcing and improving this lesson after each use. I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years.
There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it.
\- Understand what “nuclei” and “radioactivity” and “decay”etc mean.
\- Explain and understand “half life”.
\- Use radioactive decay graphs to find half life.
\- Use maths / numbers to find half life.
