Oxidation states of vanadium

Oxidation states of vanadium

A presentation which teaches students how to calculate the oxidation number of a transition metal ion in a compound, going on to use vanadium as an example. The presentation shows how different oxidation states lead to different colours of compounds, and uses photographs to illustrate this. Ideal for A Level, Advanced Higher or equivalent.

Chemical Bonding and Structure - "Beat The Teacher"

Chemical Bonding and Structure - "Beat The Teacher"

Covers: covalent bonding, metallic bond, and intra- and inter-molecular forces. Statements are displayed to students which include factually accurate information, mixed with common misconceptions. Students have to identify the sections which are incorrect (and state why they are inaccurate). If, as a class or group, they identify all of them correctly, they "beat the teacher". The student-teacher completion is very motivating! Answers are included. Ideal for Scottish National 5 / Higher, English GCSE / A-Level, and equivalents.

Global Warming: fact, theory or lie?

Global Warming: fact, theory or lie?

A presentation looking at climate change, focusing on what the terms "global warming" and "the greenhouse effect" really mean, and addressing misconceptions around them. Students are encouraged to think critically about what they're being told in the media about two alternative theories of climate change: that it's being caused by humans, or that it's natural. The presentation begins with a concept cartoon., which encourages students to think about their pre-conceptions of key ideas, before moving on to a sections designed to ensure they understand the difference between facts and theories. It then moves on to look at facts, theories and myths around global warming and the greenhouse effect, before moving onto the alternate theories of climate change.
