KS3 - Properties of solids, liquids and gases

Powerpoint fully resourced. Just add a mixture of solid, liquid and gas materials/ bottle for the pupils to sort out. Then demonstrate the properties. I use hydrogen peroxide and manganese dioxide to produce a cloud of oxygen to demonstrate that gases can be stirred and poured. Syringes filled with solids, liquids and gases with their ends sealed help with the properties too.

Catalysts and the rate of reaction

Catalysts and the rate of reaction

A lesson presentation (26 slides) that looks at the meaning of the term catalyst and then explores how these substances affect the rate of reaction. The lesson begins by ensuring that the students know an accurate definition for a catalyst. Moving forwards, time is taken to recap on the meaning of activation energy and how this is shown on a reaction profile. Students are challenged to predict how a reaction profile (and the activation energy) would look different if a reaction involved a catalyst. Links to the collision theory are made. There is a practical method written into the lesson and scientific skills are checked at all times. This lesson has been written for GCSE students

Practical Endorsement Tracker for AQA A-Level Required Practicals

Practical Endorsement Tracker for AQA A-Level Required Practicals

For Chemistry departments: this file can be used to track the Common Practical Assessment Criteria (CPAC) for A-Level AQA students studying Chemistry. Use g/o/r to colour code the squares and keep track when students complete their required practicals. The document has been formatted for ease of use so you can scroll up/down and across and still see the relevant student and skills.

Booklet for AQA Year 1 A-Level Chemistry Required Practicals

Booklet for AQA Year 1 A-Level Chemistry Required Practicals

This file contains method sheets, a write up scaffold and a marking sheets for AQA required practicals 1 to 6. Note that for required practical 5 (distillation of an organic product), only practical 5b is included. Details from the AQA specification on apparatus and techniques are included, along with a glossary from AQA on key practical terminology. A summary of the common practical assessment criteria (CPAC) is also included. For each practical it informs students which CPAC are being assessed and this is included on a marking sheet with space for teachers to give feedback.
