Really hate it, as well as all the course work I may be getting this year. Really hate being in Year 9, one of my new years resolutions is to do with my grades at school because I think some Year 9's after Easter are doing they GCSE's, so for my futures sake I need to start revising and hope for at least 5 A*s by Year 11

I manage to scrape my luck nearly all of the time by missing h/w deadlines, or not even completing it at all. My teachers have had stern words with me a lot, but ultimately it is never completed. It is probably why I spend most of my lunchtimes and breaktimes at school doing past papers, so that I am actually able to complete the end-of-topic assessments successfully. Razz

In younger years it is a pain, but in older years it is a blessing. Our school rarely gives it in younger years so when we had to revise etc. We weren't used to putting in the time for it.

Same situation as you, GeekChic - we hardly got any homework in our first two years, but 3 and 4, we've had piles. Razz

I still have to finish A FULL RE BOOKLET, but luckily I can cope. If you need help with English, I'll make a topic for it! Very Happy

That's quite interesting. My school took the opposite approach and gave us piles and piles of the stuff in year 7 & 8, probably to get us used to doing lots of work towards our GSCE subjects and preparing for CAs well. I can thankfully say it's paid off well, so now all of the GCSE stuff isn't that overwhelming.

It's completely pointless IMO, really do not see why we need it when it's just an extension of classwork. We do six and a half hours of school a day, we should be able to forget about it for the evening IMO.

I get a telling off for not doing it nearly 99.9% of the time, yet they never follow it up.

My school would argue (from what you say, MJF) that it helps the teacher identify where we need help, as a potential guideline to getting the best results in exams and EOT assessments, and all that malark. Razz

If I'm honest I agree with you, but I've started noticing, espiecially in the run up to some pretty major exams, I've found it very helpful, especially now we're being set some actually relevant stuff.

Teachers at my school have given me homework not only over the Christmas holidays but also right before I have to revise for a GCSE which I am taking in less than a week! Mad

Our Maths teacher is the only one that normally gives us homework to do over the holidays, with the rare exclusion of our Biology teacher - but this Christmas, they've both been a bit generous and not given us any to do. Razz

Post  ExplosiveCookie on Sat 06 Jul 2013, 19:20

I need to get this done for Monday, here are the questions;

How much energy is needed for each of the following?
a.To raise the temperature of 2.0kg of aluminium by 30 degrees Celsius
b.To raise the temperature of 0.05kg of water from 20 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius
c.To heat a 20kg concrete block in a storage heater from 10 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius
d.To heat 1.5kg of water from 20 degrees Celsius to boiling point

Help would be very much appriciated

Ahh, this is about the specific heat capacity of elements. There's a nifty little equation you can use to do this, and these are pretty bog standard questions related to this. I did my whole chemistry coursework on this topic, so I'm used to things like this. The equation is E=MC∆T.
E means the energy needed/given off; M is the mass of the object; C is the specific heat capacity of the substance (look this up for each one, and check you're in the right unit (g or kg)!), which means the energy required to raise one gram/kilogram (depending on the question) of the substance by one degree Celsius; ∆T is the change in temperature, or rather the amount of °C the substance has been raised by.

If this doesn't make sense, then the good old BBC can help out: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/science/aqa/heatingandcooling/buildingsrev3.shtml

Hope this helps Smile
