### Tips Fizik SPM

1. 1. Strategy to Answer & Physics Tips For SPM Candidates<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
2. 2. STRATEGY TO ANSWER PAPER 1 – Objective questions (1 hour 15 minutes)<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
3. 3. 50 objective questions. <br />Answer all.<br />The time is 1¼ hours. <br />The average time for one question is 1½ minutes.<br />Objective questions may have 3 or 4 options:<br /> A, B and C<br /> A, B, C, and D<br />Most of the questions come with 4 options. <br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
4. 4. To tackle difficult questions is to eliminate incorrect options one by one until you are left with the best possible option.<br />Many of the questions are related to experiments carried out in the laboratory. <br />Such as, MV, RV & FV.<br />Involve all the topics in the physics syllabus.<br />Know the usual meaning of symbol used in formulae in SPM Physics.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
5. 5. Read each questions diligently to make sure that you understand the requirement of that question. <br />If information such as diagrams, graphs, or data is provided, make use of them because they are provided with a purpose. <br /> Know how to interpret the various types of graphs as well as make conclusions from graphs or data provided.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
6. 6. SPM PAPER 1<br />Do not take >1½ minutes to answer each question. <br /> Unable to answer a particular question, leave it first. <br />Spending too much time on one difficult question may result in not having enough time to answer other simpler questions. <br />Come back later to that question after you have answered all the other questions.<br />
7. 7. STRATEGY TO ANSWER PAPER 2- Subjective questions ( 2 hours 30 minutes)<br />SPM PAPER 2<br />
8. 8. Section A<br />Consists of 8 structure questions. <br /> answer all. <br />The total marks in Section A is 60 marks. The marks allocated to each question vary 4 to 12 marks. <br />You are advised to spend 90 minutes on this section. <br />SPM PAPER 2<br />
9. 9. The structured questions in Section A are usually based on diagrams, tables, graphs, or data related to a certain situation or phenomenon. <br />Before attempting to answer a question at least twice and highlight the key words provided so that you will not go out of point. <br />Note the marks allocated to each section of a question. <br />A section that is allocated only 1 mark will require a short answer. <br />A section that is allocated 3 marks will require you to state 3 properties or characteristics associated with that particular section. <br />SPM PAPER 2<br />
10. 10. While answering questions that involve calculations, make sure that you write down all the steps, including the formula used. <br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
11. 11. Section A (Structure)<br />Be able to interpret diagrams, photographs, tables and graphs to relate to physics concepts and principles.<br />Give short and concise answer.<br />Underline keywords such as WHAT, HOW etc.<br />Underline the important information given in a question<br />Methods to solve calculation problems- State the related formula- Substitute the value for each formula- Answer with the correct unit<br />Pay attention to the marks allocated. The mark usually indicates the number of points required.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
12. 12. KEY WORDS IN EXAMINATION QUESTIONS<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
13. 13. Section B<br />Section B consists of two questions. You need to answer only one question from this section. <br />The marks allocated for this section is 20 marks.<br />You are advised to spend 30 minutes on this section. <br />The questions from Section B are normally preceded by a diagram that shows a certain state or situation that is related to a specific Physics concept. <br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
14. 14. You are normally asked to state the characteristics shown in the diagram and also to state the Physics principle involved.<br />Study the marks allocated to each section or sub-section in the question. <br />The marks allocated in each section may be as high as 10 marks. So you should have at least 10 points or properties. <br />Equations, diagrams, tables, graphs or other suitable methods may be used to explain your answer. However your answers should be clear and logical.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
15. 15. Section C<br />Section C consists of two questions but you must answer one question only from this section. <br />The marks for this section are 20 marks. You are advised to spend 30 minutes on this section. <br />Questions in this section normally require the interpretation of the data provided. <br />The questions from Section C are normally preceded by a table that is related to a specific Physics concept. <br />You may be required to plot a graph based on the data given. Make sure that you know the proper steps to plot a graph. <br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
16. 16. Study the marks allocated to each section or sub-section in the question. <br />The marks allocated in each section may be as high as 10 marks. You should have at least 10 points or properties. <br />The questions in this section normally require you to state a certain principle or to explain certain properties or characteristics.<br />Note that questions in Section B and C only involve the explanation of theories and do not contain questions that require you to do describe an experiment.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
17. 17. SPM PAPER 1<br />STRATEGY TO ANSWER PAPER 3- Subjective questions ( 1 hours 30 minutes)<br />
18. 18. Section A.<br />Consists of 2 structured questions. <br />Answer both.<br />The total marks is 28 marks. <br /> Spend 60 minutes on this section.<br />The questions in this section are based on experiments that you should have already done in the laboratory.<br />The questions in this section normally require you to collect and tabulate the data in a table and to plot a graph.<br />SPM PAPER 3<br />
19. 19. Required to state the MV, RV and FV based on the aim and the procedure of the experiment. <br />The questions from this section also involve the interpretation of graphs. <br /> Determine the quantity represented by the slope of the graph provided. <br />You will also need to know how to determine the slope of the graph.<br />The questions may also involve the calculation of certain quantities. <br />Make sure that you write down all the steps involved.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
20. 20. Section B<br />Section B consists of two questions.<br /> Answer one only.<br />The total marks for this section is 12 marks. <br />Advised to spend 30 minutes on this section.<br />The questions in this section are normally preceded by a diagram depicting a situation in our daily lives together with a brief write-up on the situation shown.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
21. 21. State onesuitable inference that can made from the situation.<br />State onesuitable hypothesis that can made from the situation.<br />Based on situation and the apparatus given, design an experiment.<br /> Remember you are not doing an experiment.<br />State aim of experiment, variables, material & apparatus used.<br />Provide a fully labeled diagram of the apparatus used. <br />Write out your procedure in passive form and use short sentences.<br />Tabulate & analyse data. <br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
22. 22. TIPS FOR SPM Paper 3<br />SPM PAPER 3<br />
23. 23. Section A (Structure Question)<br />Question No. 1:<br />Give the answer in a appropriate sensitivity such:<br />Using Meter Rule as the instrument:<br />the length of spring = 10.0 cm (inappropriate answer: 10 cm; <br />the accuracy of the meter rule is 0.1 cm)<br />Using Vernier Caliper as the instrument:<br />The length of the wooden block = 3.00 cm (inappropriate answer: 3.0 cm; <br />the accuracy of the meter rule is 0.01 cm)<br />Using Micrometer Screw Gauge (MSG) as the instrument:<br />The thickness of a steel plate = 4.30 mm (inappropriate answer: 4.3 mm; <br />the accuracy of the meter rule is 0.01 mm)<br />SPM PAPER 3<br />
24. 24. Variables (3 marks) <br />Manipulated variable and responding Variable<br />Students can copy directly from the question (from the sentence of aim of the<br />experiment)<br />Fixed variable <br />must be in measured quantity.<br />Example:<br />The diameter of spring (the measured quantity regarding to the spring should<br />be stated clearly)<br />Note:<br />Avoid to give more than 1 answer for this question. Any wrong answer will cancel the correct.<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
25. 25. Tabulation of Data (5 @ 6 marks)<br />The answer should contains:<br />Exact coulumns<br />Exact rows<br />Write all the quantities that has units<br />Decimal points for each coulumn must be consistent<br />Accurate measurement<br />Draw A Graph<br />A graph should have:<br />correct axis with units<br />uniform scales<br />points that were correctly plot<br />the best straight line<br />SPM PAPER 1<br />
26. 26. Relationship between responding and manipulated variable<br />Directly proportional - if a graph shows a straight line begin from (0,0)<br /><ul><li>Increases linearly - if a graph shows a straight line but intercept at Y-axis other than 0.
27. 27. Decreases linearly - if a graph shows a straight with a negative value of gradient of the graph</li></ul>SPM PAPER 1<br />
28. 28. PRECAUTIONARY STEPS FOR INVESTIGATIVE EXPERIMENTS:<br />SPM PAPER 3<br />
29. 29. SPM PAPER 3<br />SPM TIPS:<br /><ul><li>Student can give more then one answer for this question. No penalty for the answer which is unsuitable.
30. 30. Example of unacceptable answer: Avoid parallax error - No mark given for precautionary steps without explanation.</li>
