application task for conservation of mass

application task for conservation of mass

This task is made for my year 7 group but would suit year 8 or 9 too. THe questions are relatively open to allow for increasing demand. It is an application of their knowledge of conservation of mass. Also would be useful for looking at elements and compounds

Averages: Mean, Median, Mode and Range Crossword (with answers)

Averages: Mean, Median, Mode and Range Crossword (with answers)

Suitable for KS3 in maths or science when covering averages and rage. Students engage well with this and shows their understanding for the different averages. Suitable as a starter or revision activity. I have used with mid ability year 7 and 8, and it was a popular activity with both classes and created a competitive atmosphere to show who could be the first to finish.

Imaging in Science

Imaging in Science

We are surrounded by images. Scientific imaging helps prepare the way for discoveries and breakthroughs in medicine, biology, chemistry and astronomy as well as many other disciplines. Many developments in imaging methods, such as microscopy, telescopy, x-ray technology, MRI, and CT, have been awarded with Nobel Prizes. This film introduces its viewer into major scientific imaging methods with lecture snippets by Nobel Laureates John Mather, Eric Betzig, Stefan Hell and Allan Cormack.

Marie Curie

Marie Curie

Ambitious and tireless, Marie Curie was an exceptional scientist. She inspired many researchers who followed her, most notably those in her own family. With the discovery of radioactivity she turned our understanding of the physical world upside down. To this day, she remains the only person to have been awarded a Nobel Prize in two scientific disciplines.

Neutrinos

Neutrinos

Neutrinos are electrically neutral and the mass of the neutrino is tiny. As they travel through the universe they interact extremely rarely with other particles. What are the methods for detecting neutrinos and what meaning has its detection for the Standard Model of particle physics? This video gives detailed insight into the basics of neutrino research with lecture snippets of Nobel Laureates Rudolf Mössbauer, Masatoshi Koshiba und David Gross.

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.

KS3 Acids and Alkalis

KS3 Acids and Alkalis

Interactive lesson starting with a fun activity at the beginning testing how well students can remember the hazard symbols using the mini whiteboards. The lesson is for KS3 classes (I used it with bottom set Year 7 and it worked well). It is based on properties of acids and alkalis, where they can be found and an interactive activity where they can put some universal indicator into a selection of different liquids and identify if they are acidic, alkaline or neutral. Challenge activity provided for higher ability students.
