MaChemGuy Video Index for A level Chemistry

MaChemGuy Video Index for A level Chemistry

Takes you to a Google Doc which has contains the links to all of my YouTube videos (450 and counting). I teach the OCR A specification so the videos are geared to that course. I’ve had countless messages from students and teachers who follow other specs who have told me how helpful the videos have been. One teacher contacted me recently to tell me that they teach AQA, used the videos and scored ALPS 2. I’m in the process of creating some GCSE videos and so will add these to the index once done. As it’s a Google Dox, the link will always take you to the latest version. I also use Twitter and Instagram to post top tips based on what I see/mark in my day to day work. Hope you find it useful.

Allotropes of Carbon

Allotropes of Carbon

This resource allows the students to be introduced to the concepts of allotropes. It guides them through researching 4 different allotropes (diamond, nano-tubes, fullerene and graphite) to compare structure and properties. Each is followed by a guided explanation of each allotrope. For alternative method their is a guided worksheet provided that works excellently with lower ability students. The next material introduced is silicon dioxide and this is explained and compared to diamond to enable the students to develop their ability to compare and explain. Finishes with a past paper question and model answer. QR codes are provided leading to BBC bitesize.

Recycling

Recycling

Here's a resource for ks3 and ks4 on the topic of Recycling. The 23 slides cover the theory and contain tasks, prompts for class discussions, and activities for pupils. There are 2 case studies at the end where pupils have to do some calculations related to recycling. I've also included my own lesson plan / notes that I wrote in preparation for teaching this lesson. Enjoy!
