These are lessons 7 and 8 in the Amount of Substance topic in Module 2- Foundations in Chemistry.
The Stoichiometry powerpoint covers how to use the molar ratio to calculate an unknown and various examples using the equations taught in the topic so far with various degrees of difficulty and answers. I often mount these onto card with the answers underneath around the room to encourage discussion and group work.
The yield and atom economy powerpoint covers how to work out % yield and atom economy calculations as well as comparing the difference and which is more favourable.
This is the redox lesson for Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry.
I teach this lesson after completing PAG 2.1 with the students to consolidate their learning on Acids and Bases.
The powerpoint covers what redox means, how to calculate oxidation numbers, illustrating what is oxidised and reduced in a reaction and the exceptions.
I have also included the assessment I use called 10 for 10 (10 qs in 10 mins) which is multiple choice and I use to assess the students' learning of topics 2.1.1-2.1.5. There is a checklist on the front for students to colour code and re-read pages in the OCR textbook on the areas they need to improve.
This lesson follows the new AQA A Level Chemistry specification 18.104.22.168
The lesson covers:
Recap on predicting if a reaction is feasible based on emf values
Exam question on predicting if a reaction is feasible
Examples of reversible and non reversible reactions and writing overall equation and calculating overall emf values.
Comparing advantages and disadvantages of reversible and non reversible fuel cells
Hydrogen oxygen fuel cell, youtube clips, how it works and equations
Hydrogen oxygen fuel cell diagram can be printed to A3 and annotated.
Advantages and disadvantages of hydrogen oxygen fuel cell
This assessment booklet follows the new AQA A Level Chemistry specification 3.1.11
This can be used as either a homework booklet to accompany the topic or set as an end of topic assessment booklet. I used it as a homework booklet and it comes with a front cover sheet with room for www and ebi comments and mark scheme.
Extra exam questions have also been uploaded for this topic as well.
This lesson follows the new AQA A Level Specification Electrode Potentials and Cells 22.214.171.124
The lesson content covers:
Electrochemical cells and the role of the salt bridge
Daniell Cell Practical sheet (can be used as required practical 8)
Large cell diagram can be printed onto A3 and labels added
How to calculate electrode potentials
How to draw conventional representations of cells
This is a lesson covering Group 2 elements, 3.1.2 in the OCR specification.
The powerpoint includes physical and chemical trends of group 2 metals. There is also a practical sheet which covers reactions of group 2 oxides, hydroxides and thermal decomposition of group 2 carbonates.
This is end of Module 2 Assessment which has been typed up from inside the OCR textbook as there was no electronic version available. This covers all of the topics below:
Atoms, compounds, molecules and equations
Amount of Substance
Acid-base and redox reactions
Electrons, bonding and structure
This assessment includes a range of multiple choice and longer answer questions to get students ready for the summer exams. Spaces can be typed in for students to write under the questions or they can also answer on another piece of paper. The corresponding markscheme is available as well.
I use this at the end of Module 2 to inform progress before larger assessment week exams.
This is the second lesson in the Halogens topic 3.1.3 in the OCR Specification.
The powerpoint covers the displacement reaction trends, oxidising ability recap exam question and a practical sheet which covers halide ion test with silver nitrate, dilute and conc ammonia.
The lesson also includes a student practical worksheet as well as a teacher/technician worksheet.
This is the tenth lesson in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for KS3 Year 7.
This lesson includes a powerpoint reviewing solvent, solute and solution from the previous lesson, introducing the key words filtrate and residue, mini plenary assessment worksheet and a desert island practical problem using filter paper and labelling a filtration practical.
This scheme of work was made when KS3 Levels were used, so you may need to amend the levels according to your own assessment criteria used for KS3.
This is the third lesson in the Halogens topic 3.1.3 in the OCR Specification.
The powerpoint covers what disproportionation means, reactions of chlorine in water and the ethical uses of chlorine in water. There is an exam question and mark scheme to assess learning but there is also a literacy based task with articles from Greenpeace and WHO to compare the ethical uses of chlorine in water.
2.2 topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. All lessons fully resourced with powerpoints, worksheets and homework booklet with markscheme. I hand out the homework booklets at the start of every topic and collect in at the end to mark using www and ebi. The homework booklet questions have been sourced from the end of Chapter questions within the OCR textbook and typed up as no electronic copy was available. The mark scheme corresponds to the OCR pages in the textbook as well.
This is the whole topic for Electrons, Bonding and Structure fully resourced 2.2.1-2.2.2 according to the OCR Specification.
SOLO symbols are used to differentiate between tasks. Hope you find it useful and please let me know of any suggestions or improvements. More topics to follow!
Second Lesson I use as part of the topic Atomic Structure and Isotopes in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry.
The lesson reviews Isotopes and ions from the first lesson then goes onto relative isotopic mass and relative atomic mass. It also covers how to identify an element from its mass spectrum and calculating RAM.
OCR new spec does not need to know how a mass spectrometer works but I have some basic information in there to help understanding of what happens.
These are two lessons covering 3.1.1 from the OCR specification on Periodicity.
The first powerpoint covers Ionisation energies, equations, factors affecting ionisation energies and lots of graph and trend interpretation exam questions throughout.
The second lesson is an AfL task which I set to compare the properties of diamond, graphite, silicon dioxide and graphite. An information sheet is provided to help with diamond and graphite information. I set this task as a homework/in class task to include watching a TED clip on graphene.
This is the third lesson I teach in the Atomic Structure and Isotopes lesson as part of Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry.
The lesson powerpoint covers ionic charges, binary compounds, polyatomic ions, formulas of ions and balancing equations. There is also a longer and harder balancing equations worksheet and mark scheme. I have also uploaded the AfL task I set in this lesson for homework for students to research the development of atomic theory as well.
This is the sixth lesson in the Amount of Substance topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry.
The powerpoint covers molar gas volume, conversions of units for Ideal Gas Equation, calculating different factors and re-arranging the Ideal Gas Equation and practice questions and answers.
There are also two exam questions that can be used as starters and plenaries as well I've uploaded.
This is the end of topic assessment for the Chemistry Corner scheme of work.
There is also a front cover sheet using teacher and student assessment boxes for www and ebi. I have also included the progress planner to show the overall structure of the topic that students can stick into their books.
There is also a mark scheme and raw mark to level converter, however this scheme of work was made when KS3 Levels were used, so you may need to amend the levels according to your own assessment criteria used for KS3.
