EdExcel – AS Chemistry – SRQ Worksheet – Energetics

(0)
This Spaced Repetition Questions (SRQ) worksheet is designed to support the teaching of ‘Topic 8: Energetics I’ for EdExcel AS Chemistry. SRQ worksheets stagger and plan the answering of questions to automate the effect of spacing which improves recall and memorisation. They test and extend knowledge and maximise learning effects. Whilst some of the SRQs in the range test knowledge, many are long answer, synoptic questions designed to provide a deeper experience than traditional worksheets. They should ideally be issued to students at the end of a topic. This resource is composed of a worksheet of at least 5 questions with an answer sheet including worked solutions for more complex problems. It is arranged and referenced for the scheme of work from Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Advanced Subsidiary GCE in Chemistry (8CH0).
