How to teach cambridge igcse students

  1. 1. CAMBRIDGE International Examination IGCSE Physics (0625) IGCSE Chemistry (0620) Teacher :Noman Malik
  2. 2. Online Resources        
  3. 3. Text Books    Physics Matters (Marshal Cavendish) Introduction to IGCSE Physics A course of O Level chemistry (Christopher N. Prescott)
  4. 4. Why choose Cambridge IGCSE?  Learners develop not only knowledge and understanding, but also skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving, helping them to perform well and prepare for the next stage of their education.
  5. 5. Assessment at a glance    Paper 1 (45 minutes) Multiple choice question paper Weighted at 30% of total available marks
  6. 6. Paper 3 (1 hour 15 minutes) Extended theory paper Weighted at 50% of total available marks  Paper 6 (1 hour) Alternative to Practical Weighted at 20% of total available marks
  7. 7. Assessment objectives     The three assessment objectives in Cambridge IGCSE Physics or Chemistry are: A: Knowledge with understanding 50% (not more than 25% recall) B: Handling information and problem solving(30%) C: Experimental skills and investigations(20%)
  8. 8. Key words  • • Here is a list of keywords . Examiner can assess a student by using the following terms Define, state, relate, locate, explain, select, suggest, interpret, observe, manipulate, recall, draw, plot, evaluate, predict, deduce…………. Emphasis on the true meaning of the above mentioned words and more of the same type.
  9. 9. How to teach IGCSE Physics • • • Being a teacher my believe is that every student has its own style of learning. We have to understand the student's psychology before teaching a certain lesson. In 21st century u can't teach just using white board only
  10. 10. Different style of learning       Group discussion Project based learning Kinesthetic Auditory learning Visual learning Work sheets
  11. 11. Different style of learning        Flash cards Practical work Simulations Animation Videos Past paper practice Tricky problems
  12. 12. Lesson planning   Learning outcomes Methodologies        Starter Activities/warmer questions Timeline Mind Mapping Multimedia Active board support Wrap up Quick quiz
  13. 13. What a Teacher must have to do     Always give/show Cambridge syllabus to your students in class in your introductory lessons Strictly follow the Cambridge syllabus in your classes consult more than two book to prepare your lesson Reinforce the previous one before starting the new one
  14. 14. What a Teacher must have to do     Emphasize on the past paper practice, telling them how to handle tricky questions Give ample time to make an assessment paper and not just copy and paste questions from past papers Tell the students that which facts are to be learned and which ones to be understood Make some arrangements for the weak students of the class
  15. 15. What a Teacher must have to do     Always add some new challenging questions in your questions paper Make corrections on marked papers not just mark paper Follow the marking scheme strictly and don’t be biased while marking the paper Make your class interesting by using new methodologies
  16. 16. What I think A teacher who makes physics boring is criminal (Prof : Walter MIT) And I don’t want to become a criminal!!!!  A true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination (Albert Einstein) 
