Electrochemical Cells

(0)
This A-level powerpoint presentation outlines to students electrochemical cells. In particular, the formation of said cells and the rules associated with writing them.
Teaching guide for electricity
doctorharves

Teaching guide for electricity

(0)
This is a PowerPoint for teaching electricity especially circuit electricity by analogies. For example the volt as a person carrying buckets of water representing energy. The lesson incorporates both parallel and series circuits and covers current and voltage in both.
Ionic Jig saw

Ionic Jig saw

(1)
This activity develops students understanding of balancing charges in ionic salts. The students print out the activity, cut out the shapes and the recombine to determine the formulae of different ionic salts by balancing charge and making sure jigsaw is correct. Designed for KS3 and KS4 Science.
Ionisation Energy

Ionisation Energy

(0)
This powerpoint presentation provides A-level students the periodic trend of ionisation energies and provides an understanding for the reasons for the trend.
Amylase experiment
doctorharves

Amylase experiment

(0)
This is an experiment designed to test the effect of temperature on enzyme activity. The experiment is designed to link with the IGCSE Biology course. The activity also includes plotting of experimental results and questions designed to test understanding of enzyme activity.
Chemical bonding - shapes

Chemical bonding - shapes

(0)
This lesson in the form of a presentation outlines for students how you can use chemical bonding in molecules to predict shapes using VSEPR theory. The presentation also includes activities to test student understanding.
Chemical energetics - collision theory
doctorharves

Chemical energetics - collision theory

(0)
This lesson involves a presentation describing collision theory, what makes a successful collision and what are the factors that increase the rate of successful collisions. The lesson also includes activities to test student understanding.
Rates of Reaction
doctorharves

Rates of Reaction

(0)
This activity is divided into 4 parts each activity involved one of the components of rates of reactions - size, concentration, temperature and catalysts. The activity involves graphing data and then explaining the plot using rates of reaction theory. Students graph data and then apply this information to collision theory to explain observed data. The activity also includes hint sheets to assist students.
Static Electricity

Electromagnetism

8 Resources
This bundle is a series of lessons designed for a senior physics class (14 - 16 years old). The lessons link the phenomenon of magnetism to electricity and how both can be generated. The lessons all include worked examples of calculation involved in electromagnetic induction and how to determine the directions of both electric and magnetic fields. The lessons also include student activities to test their understandings of the topic.
Angry birds - projectile motion
doctorharves

Angry birds - projectile motion

(1)
This lesson involves using angry birds as a context to develop understanding of projectile motion and the affect of gravity on objects. The lesson is in 3 parts: Part one is notes and questions to test student understanding of projectile motion including breaking down the horizontal and vertical components of this motion. Part two then introduces the concept of gravity acting on an object and how mass and distance from objects changes the force of gravity. Part three is an activity where students apply their knowledge of projectile motion to design a new angry bird.
Dichotomous Keys and classification

How to use a bunsen burner

(0)
The presentation is to be done over two lessons. The first lesson goes over lab safety with an activity involving finding potential dangers in the lab. The next lesson involves the use of a bunsen burner to test for metals. The latter lesson involves students getting a bunsen burner drivers license by following safety steps. Once attained they test solid salt samples by the flame test. The other activity includes labelling the bunsen burner and using terms in sentences to reinforce learning. The learning objectives for both lessons are outlined in the presentation.
