AQA Chemistry - Ionic Bonding Questions and Answers (Bronze, Silver, Gold)

AQA Chemistry - Ionic Bonding Questions and Answers (Bronze, Silver, Gold)

Bronze, silver and gold questions covering the ionic bonding topic for AQA chemistry (suitable for combined and chemistry alone). Answers are attached so students could self-assess. I have gone against the specification criteria to ensure that all points are covered. I have included 10 literacy/grammar mistakes that students should strive to notice. Ideal for a revision lesson or for a homework prior to a task. I feel this is suited to a middle to high ability class. Useful for highlighting common areas of weakness and directing revision time.

GCSE Chemistry (9-1)-TOPIC 5 Transition Metals, Corrosion & Alloying

GCSE Chemistry (9-1)-TOPIC 5 Transition Metals, Corrosion & Alloying

A great knowledge organiser all boiled down to one sheet. My revision methods are quite simple in my lessons - SPEC IT, REVISE IT, TEST IT. If students know EXACTLY WHAT they need to revise (using the specification checklist) it makes for smarter revision. If they can TEST THEMSELVES to measure their understanding - even better! This resource is a comprehensive but concise knowledge organiser covering… transition metals and their properties tarnish and oxidation of metals corrosion rusting of iron and steel ways to reduce corrosion and oxidation pure metals vs alloyed metals (the good old stock answer “layers slide etc etc”) This knowledge organiser has been made against the Edexcel specification but would easily be applicable to others. Each revision point has been written in accordance with the specification section to help students translate the specification points. The Knowledge Organiser is applicable to students sitting standard or higher tier papers.
