# Forces CPD videos

CPD for 11-14 14-16 16-19

Forces enable us to explain why things happen. On this page, you will find videos to support the teaching of forces across the age groups.

- Everyday forces
- Force arrows
- Balanced forces
- Newton 3
- Newton 2 (and vectors)
- Newton 1
- Advanced force diagrams and vectors
- Book onto a CPD session
- Links to teaching resources

#### Meet the presenters

*(Left to right) Daisy Fox, Kath Myers, Mark Whalley & Sue Woolhouse. *

#### 11-14

Sue explores the types of forces on objects you may find at home.

##### Force arrows

Daisy looks at how to construct force diagrams and use arrows to represent forces.

##### Balanced forces

Kath explores balanced forces and common misconceptions about moving objects.

#### 14-16

##### Newton 3

Daisy unpicks a typical exam question about the forces on a rocket and explores how students often confuse interaction force pairs.

##### Newton 2 (and vectors)

Kath examines how unbalanced forces affect motion and how vector addition allow us to find the resultant force and acceleration.

##### Newton 1

Sue explores what a resultant force of zero means and uses curly cardboard arrows to model a sky diver reaching terminal velocity.

#### 16-19

##### Advanced force diagrams and vectors

Mark and Daisy explore 3 forces in equilibrium and compare practical and theory for a mass on an inclined plane.
