Physical Sciences - Bk 2 Cover
This book will be available late 2020. Karate is the compelling context that links life to learning in Book 2. Supported by a clear lesson plan, each activity is designed to be simple enough for teachers to master with minimal practice before delivering it to students. Teach each section as a stand-alone topic if that suits your classroom programme or take advantage of the natural progression between topics to use the resource as a complete unit of work.

About the Author

Picture of Emily Hall
Emily Hall works at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand, where she is science teaching coordinator for the Otago University Advanced School Sciences Academy (OUASSA), tutor/lab demonstrator in the Physics Department and teacher of a scholarship physics class for Dunedin school students. Although she started her university education in Canada, she put this on hold to work as a software developer for the North American sawmill industry before moving to Dunedin. She completed her BSc in computer science and physics from the University of Northern British Columbia, as well as gaining a BA in education and a Bachelor of Secondary Teaching at the University of Otago. Thereafter she taught senior physics in Balclutha and Dunedin, and completed a Master of Science Communication, with her thesis titled “Fight Like a Physicist: Teaching Classical Mechanics through Karate”. The martial art is much more than an academic interest for Emily: she teaches karate – of course, trying to throw in some physics concepts as well – and competes both nationally and internationally. Emily is mum to two boys who are keen karate competitors as well.
