Post 16 Acids and Bases Scheme of Work

Post 16 Acids and Bases Scheme of Work

This unit was delivered to cover unit 8 of the IB - Acids and Bases, however it would be suitable for most post-16 programs of study. It begins by recapping the subjects that students should be familiar with from GCSE, before building into more advanced topics. Each PowerPoint comes with a ´student version´ which has gaps for the students to complete, and contains several exercises for students to do. I have also included past paper questions and answer schemes. Topics covered are: - What are acids and bases? - Bronsted Lowry acids and bases (and conjugate acids and bases) - Amphiprotic and amphoteric substances - Lewis acids and bases - Reactions of acids with metals, metal oxides, metal hydroxides, metal carbonates and metal hydrogencarbonates, bases and alkalis - Making salts - What is pH and how to calculate the pH of both acids and bases - Using the dissociation constant of water to calculate pH - Acid deposition - how it occurs and how it can be treated - Calculations involving Ka, pKa, Kb, pKb, pH and pOH - Using the relationships Kw = Ka x Kb and pKa + pKb = pKw - Titration curves for titrations involving any combination of strong and weak acids and bases - Indicators - how to select a suitable indicator for a titration - How to calculate the pH of salt solutions - Buffers - what are they, how are they made and how do they work (including calculations)

Mobile phone charger - Science linked with Business and Enterprise skills

Mobile phone charger - Science linked with Business and Enterprise skills

This 2 week KS3 scheme of work was designed to take 4x100 minute lessons. The aim of the project is to guide students to research, test, ´market´ and evaluate their own method of charging a mobile phone The lessons are broken down as follows: Lesson 1 - Research and Planning Lesson 2 - Testing charger options Lesson 3 - Product Design Lesson 4 - Pitching the design to peers and evaluation Originally designed to link Science with Business and Enterprise, it could also be used to encourage the use of transferable skills in science, and would make an independent and interactive ´end of year´ activity.

iGCSE Chemistry Moles Unit of Work

iGCSE Chemistry Moles Unit of Work

This booklet and accompanying PowerPoints covers the Moles topic for iGCSE Chemistry. It would also be useful for other courses, as it covers all of the topics in the list below. The booklet is designed to be interactive and to be filled in by the students, accompanied by the PowerPoints. It includes spaces for worked calculations, exercises, past paper questions (taken from the Cambridge iGCSE papers) and two practicals. The answers to the exercises are also provided for the workbook and are shown on the PowerPoints. What exactly is a mole? How can we convert between masses and moles? How do we deal with diatomic molecules? Converting between mass and moles in compounds Calculating the % by mass of an element in a compound Balancing Equations Reacting Masses Limiting Reagents Percentage Yield Practical - How much copper sulphate can we get from malachite? Percentage Purity Empirical Formula Moles in Gases Moles in Solutions Titrations Practical – What is the concentration of sodium hydroxide? I also have another scheme of work where this booklet has been altered slightly for the Co-ordinated Science Chemistry moles unit.
