Introduction (10  12 minutes)

Recall of Previous Knowledge: The teacher should start by reminding students of their previous lessons on basic physics. They should ask the students to recall what they know about forces and fields, such as gravitational and electric fields. The teacher should also remind them of the concept of poles, as this will be essential for understanding magnetic forces.

Problem Situations: The teacher will then propose two problem situations to the students:
 The first one could involve a scenario where a student is trying to push two magnets together, but they keep repelling each other. The teacher should ask, "Why does this happen? What forces are at work here?"
 The second situation could involve a compass needle that always points north. The teacher should ask, "How does the compass needle know where north is? What's causing it to move?"

RealWorld Context: The teacher will then contextualize the importance of understanding magnetic forces. They can explain how magnets and magnetic forces are used in various realworld applications, such as in compasses for navigation, in MRI machines for medical imaging, and even in credit cards and computer hard drives. The teacher can emphasize the fact that without understanding the principles of magnetic forces, these technologies would not exist.

Topic Introduction and Attention Grabbing: The teacher will then introduce the topic of magnetic forces and their role in physics. They will grab the students' attention by sharing a couple of intriguing facts or stories related to magnets and magnetic forces:
 They can share the story of how magnets were discovered by ancient civilizations, who noticed that certain types of rocks (later identified as magnets) could attract iron.
 They can also share a fun fact about how some animals, such as pigeons and sea turtles, use the Earth's magnetic field to navigate.
Through these steps, the teacher will not only set the stage for the lesson but also stimulate the students' curiosity and interest in the topic.
Development (20  25 minutes)

Fundamental Concepts of Magnetism (5  7 minutes):

The teacher starts the main part of the lesson by introducing the fundamental concepts of magnetism. They will explain that magnetism is a force that can attract or repel certain materials, such as iron or steel.

They should clarify that magnets have two distinct poles: the north pole and the south pole. The teacher will explain that like poles repel, while unlike poles attract, using visual aids such as a bar magnet or a magnetic compass if available.

The teacher should also emphasize that magnets can create an invisible field around them, known as a magnetic field, which is the region where the magnetic force is exerted. The strength of the field is usually depicted by the density of the field lines.

The teacher will then discuss how to identify the poles of a magnet, using the fact that the north pole of a magnet is attracted to the south pole of another magnet but repels the north pole of another magnet.


Generating Magnetic Fields (5  7 minutes):

The teacher should explain how magnets create these magnetic fields. They will clarify that magnets are made up of tiny magnetic domains, which are like tiny magnets within the material.

When these domains are aligned, the material becomes magnetized. The teacher can use an animated video or a simulation to illustrate this process to make it more engaging and interactive for the students.

They should highlight that the strength of a magnetic field depends on the number of aligned domains and the strength of their magnetic force.


Magnetic Forces on Moving Charges (5  7 minutes):

The teacher should then discuss the interaction between magnetic fields and moving electric charges. They will explain that when a charged particle moves through a magnetic field, it experiences a force perpendicular to both its direction of motion and the direction of the magnetic field.

The teacher can use the righthand rule or a visual aid to help students understand the direction of the force on a moving charge in a magnetic field.

They should clarify that the greater the charge of the particle, the greater its speed, or the stronger the magnetic field, the greater the force on the particle.


Magnetic Induction (5  7 minutes):

The teacher can conclude the theory part of the lesson by introducing the concept of magnetic induction. They should explain that when a magnetic field changes near a conductor, it induces an electric current in the conductor.

The teacher can use a demonstration with a coil and a bar magnet to show how a change in the magnetic field induces a current in the coil.

They should highlight the importance of this concept in many practical devices like transformers, generators, and even some household appliances like electric toothbrushes and induction cookers.

Through these development stages, the students will gain a clear understanding of the fundamental concepts of magnetic forces. The teacher should ensure to provide simple, reallife examples and interactive resources, where possible, to keep the students engaged and to facilitate comprehension.
Feedback (8  10 minutes)

Assessment of Learning (3  4 minutes): The teacher will assess what the students have learned by asking a series of questions and engaging in a class discussion. This will not only help the teacher gauge the students' understanding but also give the students an opportunity to clarify any doubts they may have.

The teacher can start by asking the students to explain, in their own words, what they understand about magnetic forces, the properties of magnets, and the generation of magnetic fields. The teacher should ensure that the students are able to articulate these concepts clearly and accurately.

The teacher can then propose a few problem situations for the students to solve, based on the concepts they have learned. For instance, they could ask the students to predict what would happen if they tried to push two magnets with the same poles together, or what would happen if they brought a compass near a power source.

The teacher can also ask the students to explain the concept of magnetic induction and its practical applications, such as in the functioning of a transformer or a generator.

The teacher should encourage the students to explain their reasoning and to justify their answers based on the concepts they have learned. They should also provide feedback, correct any misconceptions, and clarify any doubts.


Reflection (3  4 minutes): The teacher will then guide the students to reflect on what they have learned in the lesson. They can do this by posing a few reflection questions and giving the students a minute or two to think about their answers.

The teacher can ask the students to consider how the concepts of magnetic forces, fields, and induction are related to each other.

They can also ask the students to think about the realworld applications of these concepts and how understanding them can help us in our daily lives.

The teacher can then ask the students to reflect on what they found most interesting or challenging about the lesson. This will give the teacher valuable feedback on the students' learning preferences and needs, and it will also help the students consolidate their learning and identify areas they may need to review.


Summarizing the Lesson (1 minute): The teacher will then conclude the lesson by summarizing the main points and highlighting the key takeaways. They can use a slide or a whiteboard to write down the main concepts and properties of magnets, the process of generating magnetic fields, the interaction between magnetic fields and moving charges, and the concept of magnetic induction.
Through these feedback stages, the teacher will not only assess the students' understanding of the lesson but also facilitate their reflection on their learning. This will help to consolidate their understanding of the concepts and to identify areas that may need further clarification or reinforcement in future lessons.
