Simplified Periodic Table

Simplified Periodic Table

I can never seem to find the right periodic table for my students so have made one ideal for KS3/4. Relative atomic mass is only measured to 1d.p. for elements such as Chlorine.Lanthinoids and Actinoides are ignored.Elements are not given capital letters.UK spelling.Relative atomic mass is shown above the chemical symbol.Includes livermorium and flerovium, moscovium etc.Colour coded groups.Groups 1-8 labelled.

Solubility rules game (Predicting products and generating chemical equations)

Solubility rules game (Predicting products and generating chemical equations)

Dice game designed to support students whilst learning the solubility rules. Ideal for GCSE science/chemistry classes and chemistry A-level students looking to recap. Dice are used to select different, soluble ionic compounds. The learner should then determine the products and decide whether they are soluble or insoluble, based on the solubility rules. The activity is differentiated for more able learners, asking them to generate balanced chemical equations.

OCR GCSE 9-1 Gateway Combined Science / Chemistry  Units 1 - 6

OCR GCSE 9-1 Gateway Combined Science / Chemistry Units 1 - 6

A complete Scheme of Work for the new specification OCR GCSE 9-1 Gateway Combined Science / Chemistry Units 1 - 6 This includes: • Detailed Lesson PowerPoint for every lesson – These cover each of the key concepts clearly and concisely. The outcomes are differentiated and linked directly to the specification • Associated worksheets • AFL sheets for every lesson - These are differentiated and linked directly to the specification, covering all of the content that students are required to understand • H/W Sheets for every other lesson – These focus around factual recall of the key information from the specification Academies have uploaded the PowerPoint resources onto their website. This allows students to access them for revision or in case of absence. Parents and carers can also have access to the lessons so they are able to support their child at home. The homework sheets are easily uploaded to platforms such as Show My Homework so they can easily be accessed by students, parents and carers. This scheme of work maps directly to the Oxford OCR Gateway Chemistry textbook.

INVESTIGATING THE COPPER CONTENT OF BRASS SCREWS [CHEMISTRY A2]

INVESTIGATING THE COPPER CONTENT OF BRASS SCREWS [CHEMISTRY A2]

Extract: "Iodine/thiosulfate titrations can be used to determine the concentration of Cu2+ ions in a solution. The brass solution will be able made up into a solution, placed in the conical flask and dissolved in concentrated nitric acid and neutralised to form a Cu2+ (aq) ions. This is where the copper in brass is converted in a neutral solution containing Cu ions. The copper ions then react with Iodine ions (I-) to form a white precipitate of copper (I) iodide and a solution of iodine. The iodine produced in the mixture is then titrated with a standard solution of sodium thiosulfate (listed in the equipment.) You then carry out the relevant calculations to find out the percentage composition of Copper in the original brass alloy. To detect the end-point of the titration, you add small amounts of starch to form a deep blue-black colour that helps you identify a clear end-point colour. End point: all the iodine reacted & blue-black colour disappears. The chemistry on which this analysis of brass is based on redox titration; the relevant equations:"

New 2018 AQA complete assessments for chemistry trilogy

New 2018 AQA complete assessments for chemistry trilogy

I have made assessments for the new GCSE AQA course. Students have 15 mins to attempt the diagnostic test and then you go through with them the answers and they annotate. They fill in the front of the sheet and write what they do know and what they need to learn. Then they attempt the final test and mark they should see an improvement. Print to A4 2 pages per sheet and back to back they can then fold into a booklet.

Complete GCSE Science Revision Game - ARTICULATE!

Complete GCSE Science Revision Game - ARTICULATE!

This board game is based on the hit title "articulate", with a similar playing style to Taboo!This game was adapted with a focus on Year 11 GCSE Science, with topics from all 3 science disciplines and is applicable to most exam boards. This activity acts as a great revision tool for whole classes or small intervention groups to ensure they are familiar with all the key words from across all 3 disciplines. This activity has also been used as both a starter/plenary for classes in Year 9 --> Year 11 and as a reward at the end of a term!How to use the resource? (It does work well if a class set has been printed and laminated in advance of play).1. Students play the game in pairs (this is good for accommodating larger class sizes). There should be a maximum of 4 pairs to each board game template.2. Each pair takes it in turns to describe as many key words (corresponding to the colour they are on, on the playing board) to their partner but...a. You cannot SPELL the word, or say how many letters it has.b. You cannot SAY any part of the word.c. You cannot use “rhymes with” or “sounds like".3. If their partner guesses correctly, these cards are kept to the side and another is picked QUICKLY and described until the time is up!4. Students count up their number of correct cards and move this number of spaces around the playing board.5. Students can pass if they are unsure on how to describe the word/can not guess it! This saves time!6. If students land on a star on the playing board - they need to describe and guess ONLY the words with a star next to them on the playing cards (this is a mixture of words from all 3 science disciplines). 7. The winner is the first pair to move their counter to the finish segment!ENJOY!!Please leave a review/feedback once you've used this resource so it can be adapted for others!(Note: I do not own any of the rights associated with the playing title/game)

OCR A Level Chemistry (H432)  Module 3.2 Physical Chemistry - Powerpoint

OCR A Level Chemistry (H432)  Module 3.2 Physical Chemistry - Powerpoint

This powerpoint contains the main knowledge required for the unit as described in the specification. The main purpose is to help students prepare for the examination by learning the key information required through continued repetition. This can be achieved alone or as part of a peer to peer activity in lessons. Once learnt, the application of the knowledge gained can be practiced through past paper questions
