I currently teach IGCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Also A level Biology. The resources I produce for my lessons are carefully planned and I try to involve a lot of self-learning to allow students to develop these important skills needed for further education.

A level Chemistry Transition/Taster Lessons

(0)
A series of lessons that students can complete in class or at home. It is an introduction to the first units studied and builds on previous knowledge learned at GCSE. Lessons include: Describe the structure of the atom and atomic particles Calculate mass number and atomic number Define the term isotope Explain what is relativity and why do we compare to carbon 12 Define relative isotopic mass, relative atomic mass, relative molecular mass and relative formula mass

IGCSE Properties of Covalent bonding

(0)
A whole lesson in a power point presentation which looks at the properties of covalent bonds to include, why substances with a simple molecular structures have low melting and boiling points and how these increase with increasing relative molecular mass; why substances with giant covalent structures have high melting and boiling points and how the structures of diamond, graphite and C60 fullerene influence their physical properties, including electrical conductivity and hardness. There is plenty of opportunity for students to research and analyse data on certain covalent substances to build up a picture of covalent properties. There is also an exam question with mark scheme.

IGCSE/GCSE Isotopes, Relative Atomic Mass and Electronic configuration

(0)
PPT 1 was created for the second part of a lesson following on from atomic structure. The objectives are to: * recall the structure of an atom in terms of the positions, relative masses and relative charges of subatomic particles * recall what is meant by the terms atomic number and mass number * Define the terms isotopes and relative atomic mass (Ar) * Calculate the relative atomic mass of an element (Ar) from isotopic abundances. It includes practice for calculating Ar and an edexcel exam question. I have included the video from fuseschool which I have used in this lesson. PPT focuses on electronic configuration with teacher led presentation. Students can then complete the electronic configuration for first 20 elements.

Introducing Enthalpy Change and Enthalpy level diagrams

(0)
2 complete lessons introducing enthalpy changes. By the end of the lesson students should: Know that enthalpy is the heat change measured at a constant pressure and state the standard conditions Be able to define what we mean by standard enthalpy of a reaction Be able to construct and interpret enthalpy level diagrams showing an energy change Lesson includes discussion points and questions to check understanding.

IGCSE Covalent Bonding

(0)
A lesson to introduce the concept of covalent bonds through PPT and animation. Students learn the rules of how to draw dot cross diagrams to represent covalent bonds and apply their knowledge to draw hydrogen chloride, chlorine, oxygen, ammonia, methane, ethane, ethene, water and carbon dioxide.
