Extracting metals REVISION

Extracting metals REVISION

A fun and engaging lesson presentation (54 slides) and differentiated worksheet that uses exam questions, quick tasks and competitions to allow students to assess their understanding of the topic of extracting metals. Students will have fun competing in teams whilst recognising the areas of the specification which need further attention. Games involved in the lesson include "Extract the non-fact" where students are challenged to spot the error in the passages about extracting the different metals. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students

AQA AS level Unit 1 Section 1 Atomic structure (atom, electrons, mass spec, ionisation energies)

AQA AS level Unit 1 Section 1 Atomic structure (atom, electrons, mass spec, ionisation energies)

AQA AS level Unit 1 Section 1 Atomic structure Using the specification and books No exam questions are included due to copy right Including: Homework booklets Assessment sheets Interactive powerpoints (rarely seen in A-level) 1. The atom 2. Atomic models (developing ideas from GCSE) 3. Relative mass, relative atomic mass and atomic number 4 Mass spectrometer 5. Mass spectrum analysis - using mass spectra 6. Electron structure - shells and sub-level (s, p, d, f) 7. Ionisation energies - trends and equations LESSON 1: FUNDAMENTAL PARTICLES To appreciate that the knowledge and understanding of atomic structure has evolved over time To describe the properties of p, n and e in terms of relative charges and mass To know that early models of the atomic structure predicted that atoms and ions with noble gas electron arrangements should be stable LESSON 2: Isotopes To explain the existence of isotopes To determine the relative atomic mass of elements using isotope abundance data To understand the physical and chemical properties of different isotopes LESSON 3: MASS SPECTROMETER To recall how to calculate the Ar and Mr To understand the m/z ratio To know how a mass spectrometer operates LESSON 4: MASS SPECTRA ANALYSIS To understand how to interpret a mass spectrum and calculate relative atomic mass To understand how to work out the relative molecular/formula mass To consolidate with questions LESSON 5: ELECTRON CONFIGURATION OVER 2 LESSONS To understand the electron configuration of atoms and ions To be able to write the electron configuration of atoms up to Z=36 in terms of levels and sub-levels (orbitals) s, p and d To understand that there are exceptions to the rules for ions and certain elements LESSON 7: IONISATION ENERGIES To state the definition of ionisation energies To describe the trend in ionisation energies a) down a group and b) across a period in terms of electron configurations To explain how trends in ionisation energies provide evidence for the existence of electron energy levels and sub-levels ENJOY!!!

AQA Trilogy (chemistry) revision cards

AQA Trilogy (chemistry) revision cards

Revision cards for pupils to fill in. Each card contains a statement from the specification. These can be copied back to back and then hole punched to create a set of revision cards. Each card contains a small picture to denote the topic. Topics for paper 1 are in black and topics for paper 2 are in red. Cards cover ALL of the chemistry part of the Trilogy specification. Physics is to follow. (image shows example of biology cards which are also available)

Introduction to the Periodic Table, Atoms, Elements and Compounds!

Introduction to the Periodic Table, Atoms, Elements and Compounds!

This is a bundle of two engaging lessons containing various activities, to help teach students the concept of Atoms, Elements, Compounds and the Periodic Table. There is also a Periodic Table puzzle activity that students can complete as a lesson task or homework. It introduces real-world examples of when mixtures and the periodic table can go wrong, and has video links to keep your students interested and wanting to find out more! Also if there are any tweaks or support once you have purchased this resource, I am on-hand to help out :)
