Reversible reactions, equilibrium and Le Chatelier's principle PP and activity

Reversible reactions, equilibrium and Le Chatelier's principle PP and activity

A PP covering the AQA specification for Chemistry module 5.6.2 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The activity is to support the powerpoint and can be a whole class, group task or independent task (answers are provided). I have included some application questions to help students to link prior learning and extend understanding as well as help them to think outside the box. The PP is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. Each sub-topic includes a few quick multiple choice questions (MCQ) to assess students learning (AFL) Topics covered: Reversible reactions Energy changes and reversible reactions Equilibrium Effect of changing conditions on equilibrium (HT) Effect of changing concentration (HT) Effect of temperature (HT) Effect of pressure (HT)

AQA GCSE Science exam dates 2019 posters/flyers for NEW Spec Combined and Separate sciences

2019 AQA Science exam dates in a clear fashion for students, parents and staff Ideas for use: Print out 2 per page and hand out at parents evenings Print out on A4 for each classroom Save a copy on your school website My students have always appreciated them as the exam timetables can be very confusing and often they want to know the dates before the school publishes them. NB: Please check the dates closer to the time as sometimes exam boards change the dates. These are correct as per the AQA website on 24/8/18 https://filestore.aqa.org.uk/admin/t_table_pdf/AQA-TT-GCSE-JUN19-CONFIRMED.PDF

Revision checklist for OCR A level chemistry

Revision checklist for OCR A level chemistry

A quick activity that could start revision or be used from the start of the year to allow students to quickly monitor their progress. I set students different topics as part of their independent work and have reference copies of the mark schemes in my lab for them to use once they have completed the questions It is a good way to monitor and motivate independent work as well as remind students of the volume of content they need to know for their final exams.
