Using different indicators to identify acids and alkalis

Using different indicators to identify acids and alkalis

This lesson gives pupils a chance to explore different indicators and dismiss the misconception that acids are red and alkali is blue. The work sheet should be laminated for multiple use and used to record their results visually, using micro-scale chemistry. One drop of the test chemical should be placed using a pipette, directly onto the laminated worksheet and then on drop of the indicator added afterwards. This lesson allows pupils to see that different indicators, have different effects and also saves on the amount of chemicals that yous use in class

AQA A-Level Chemistry Essential Resources for Students

AQA A-Level Chemistry Essential Resources for Students

A tonne of admin-related resources for students to give at the start of the chemistry course, for both AS and A2 (AQA 7404 7405). Including equation sheets, personal course information booklets, and assessment overviews. Below is a detailed overview of what’s in this pack: Equation lists: students need to learn these equations off by-heart. Assessment in y13 poster: a quick overview of how Y13 students are assessed. Binder sheets: a start of course overview sheet for students’ ring binders to look organised. Required Practical Cover Sheets: front sheets for students’ practical lab folder, for each practical. Overview word documents: A detailed booklet plan you can add to directly as a tracker of when topics should be completed by, includes sections for students’ own tracking too. Every resource made by me, except the 12 practicals overview which is directly from the AQA specification.

AQA Trilogy Whole course checklists

AQA Trilogy Whole course checklists

PDF and Word Checklists for pupils to use that cover all Y10 and Y11 AQA Trilogy Biology, Chemistry and Physics specification points. Can be printed A5 and glued into books and used for reflective practice. Grids at the bottom allow pupils to identify strengths and weaknesses. Review box allows pupils to let you know what they have done about their weak areas. Please note these differ from other alternatives as they are intended to be used throughout the unit to identify weak areas and intervene rather than doing this at the end and it being less effective.
