Chemistry Paper 2 Revision (AQA 9-1 New Specification)

Chemistry Paper 2 Revision (AQA 9-1 New Specification)

A revision power point designed to be used for the final lesson before the paper 2 exam. Briefly covers the main points of collision theory and rates of reaction, fractional distillation, alkanes, alkenes, chromatography, gas tests, the Earth’s atmosphere, pollutants, drinking water and life cycle assessments. I have put this together with foundation students in mind but could easily be added to to cover the higher tier parts of the specification. I intent to print the slides out so that the students can annotate around them as I talk.

Group 1: The alkali metals

Group 1: The alkali metals

This is a detailed and engaging lesson presentation which focuses on the properties of the elements found in group 1 of the Periodic Table, the alkali metals. Students are challenged throughout the lesson to be able to link their observations of the reactions to the properties.
