A-Level Physics – Using models to help students develop their understanding of the magnetic fields

Students find the topic of magnetic fields conceptionally very challenging. The course shares ideas about how to get it right at GCSE and then covers the A Level content of magnetic flux density, magnetic flux, magnetic flux linkage and Faraday’s and Lenz’s laws. Purposeful practical work and the use of models is at the core of this training course!
