This full lesson resource helps students to balance full and half equations and apply state symbols with 9-1 graded exam style plenary questions (F and H). It lasts about 1.5 hours. This resource is linked to the AQA specification and has 9-1 graded learning objectives linked to the content.
33 page ppt which explains using a balancing full equations using the circle the formula method, to avoid the misconception to change the formula (see https://twitter.com/MrTSci409/status/1116405433684713472)
3 Helpsheets (Full/Half/State symbols) for students to refer to when completing the questions
46 Equations to balance (30 full and 16 half) with ANSWERS for students to self/peer assess
All equations are taken from the AQA Specification (let me know if I’ve missed any out!)
Plenary questions (F and H) graded with answers
A gratuitous use of colour to help understand how and why equations are balanced.
