Differentiated Mole Calculations now with answers

(41)
Mole calculations spread across three levels. The sheets include the formulae and 9 or so questions. The easy one are gimmes for most GCSE groups, medium and hard are intended for higher abilities and A Level or IB. I usually let pupils choose their sheet. Hard Q7, someone asked for clarification 8 g of O = 0.5 moles 1:1 ratio n=m/Mr, 0.5=7/Mr, hence Mr is 14, Nitrogen, acidic 2:1 ratio n=m/Mr, 0.5 x 2=7/Mr, hence Mr is 7, Lithium (Li2O), a strongly basic oxide.

I run this a three lesson set up. Lesson 1 - choose groups with the hyperlink on the lesson plan slide. Groups have the worksheet to framework planning. The focus is on idea generation and job delegation. Orders for equipment to technicians. Lesson 2 - A chance to practise experiments and complete posters and examples Lesson 3 - 30 minutes to prepare the marketplace, then 7 minutes per changeover and the pupils get the second worksheet. The .pdf goes nicely full screen (cntl L) and as they tidy up they fill in ideas by way of plenary.

Powerpoints for mass/weight, Hooke's Law, density, pressure and falling objects (same speed). The pressure mice makes a nice starter or potentially a great investigation. The Nails idea makes for a lovely challenge or starter. The gravity bubbles are a steal from another TES user. Triangular questions are tarsia puzzles.

Some simple lessons, and two worksheets. The Madonna one is sadly true, but is very useful for getting pupils to recognise the value of having scientific evidence.

I use these for all lessons, they are empty powerpoints that you can put your starter, learning objectives, lesson plans, activities and instructions, plenary and learning outcomes into. Underneath each slide on the GCSE one is an explanation of what is available to you there and how I see it being used. Pupils and other tesonians seem to like them. GCSE is in comic sans and black outlined in text boxes to help weaker readers.

Pre-written worksheet for setting out equations, an upd8 activity useful for plotting graph skills as well as predicting patterns. P1.2 is hard going, and may be best supplemented by using simple equations for calculate velocity.

Single stand up fun lesson looking into AM and FM transmission, as well as other ideas on how information is sent. I have pupils then present the next lesson with a frieze to go along my ceiling with the EMS showing changing wavelength, frequency, notable features etc... Especially good if you have girders.

I nice lesson where pupils are challenged to use cross curricular maths links to find the volumes of objects, including fruits, and thus find their density. Simple plenary of does it float or not based on their calculations.\n\nThe worksheet is hard work, but as long as pupils stay focused on what they know.

Some resources to help. Discusses fractional distillation. I run the activity by making a column out of two lines of tables, then give the students a boiling point. They enter the column from base, then move up to their condensing point.
