Third topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. All lessons fully resourced with powerpoints, worksheets progress sheet of the whole topic, PAG worksheets, multiple choice assessment 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 Acids and Redox fully resourced 2.1.4-2.1.5 according to the OCR Specification. I have included the 10 for 10 (10 qs in 10 mins) which is a multiple choice summative assessment I used after I taught 2.1.1-2.1.5 to get the students used to multiple choice questions and assess their progress. The answers are at the back of the test. 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!
This powerpoint would cover easily 2 lessons worth of content which covers: IUPAC rules for naming carboxylic acids and esters. Reactions of carboxylic acids Forming esters from carboxylic acids and alcohols Acid & Base Hydrolysis of esters Mini practical instructions to make test tube esters. This powerpoint is following the new A Level AQA Specification.
This is the eleventh lesson in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for KS3 Year 7. This lesson includes a powerpoint on identifying dissolving, filtering and evaporation techniques from diagrams, what happens in evaporation and then a final group practical. This is a rock salt challenge so students are assessed on their group practical skills as well as their answers to the evaporation questions. 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 powerpoint and practical sheet covers two lessons worth of content. The powerpoint covers: How an ester bond forms a fat and oil. Melting point of fats and oils and how they can be used to make soap. How Biodiesel is formed and why it isn’t 100% carbon neutral. Practical instructions to make soap using caster oil and sodium hydroxide (as well as an extra practical making detergent) This powerpoint has been made following the new AQA A Level Chemistry specification.
This is lesson 4 in the Electrons, bonding and structure topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint covers bonding pairs vs lone pairs repulsion, drawing simple shapes and a rule list for helping determine how many LP and BP and therefore what shape is produced. It also goes onto multiple bonds. I encourage the use of molymod kits for this lesson too, which helps with the 3D aspect of bonding.
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.
This is the second lesson in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for KS3 Year 7. This lesson includes a powerpoint on changes of state (I always purchase some dry ice to demonstrate sublimation in class), properties of solids liquids and gases as well as melting and boiling points. There are also differentiated activity sheets and an extension task on icebergs. 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 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 first lesson in the Halogens topic 3.1.3 in the OCR Specification. The powerpoint covers the physical properties of the Halogens, trends in boiling points, oxidising ability and displacement reactions. The lesson also includes a student practical worksheet as well as a teacher/technician worksheet.
This lesson follows the new A Level AQA Specification 126.96.36.199 on Standard Hydrogen Electrode and Electrochemical Series The lesson covers: The role of the SHE How changing conditions can affect electrode potentials Electrochemical series and trends Predicting if a reaction is feasible based on electrode potentials
This is the fifth lesson in the Amount of Substance topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint covers calculating concentration review and mass concentrations and then goes onto how to read from a burette and my titration top tips! The students then have to perform a titration and try and get concordant results in order to calculate the concentration of hydrochloric acid using a standard solution of sodium hydrogen carbonate. There are questions on the practical sheet which structures the calculations with model answers on the teacher sheet.
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 second lesson in the Amount of Substance topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint covers empirical and molecular formula, relative molecular mass, hydrated salts and water of crystallisation. The worksheets will help with empirical formulae calculations (there is a help sheet if needed for weaker students) however there is also a stretch and challenge task on Ions for higher ability students to complete to differentiate. The practical activity helps bring together empirical formula and water of crystallisation but also helps prepare students for PAG 1.3 prior to them completing their first PAG.
This is the fourth lesson in the Amount of Substance topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. After PAG 1.3 has been performed I teach this lesson. The powerpoint covers moles, volume and concentration calculations and re-arranging the equations. converting between units and making up a standard solution using equations. The worksheets help practice equation and calculation practice and there is a practical sheet for making up a standard solution for students and teachers.
This is the first lesson in the second topic The Amount of Substance in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint covers Avogadro's constant, the mole, molar mass and re-arranging the molar mass equation. The activity is a good task to get students to understand what a mole is in terms of the number of atoms in your signature. The worksheets help introduce standard form and sig fig if needed to practice Maths skills as well as practicing re-arranging the molar mass equation.
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.
This is the fourth and fifth lesson in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for KS3 Year 7. This lesson includes a powerpoint on identifying factors that suggest a reaction has happened, differences between physical and chemical reactions, a practical activity circus investigating x6 reactions and a literacy task explaining one of the practicals in the circus. 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 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.
