Electrolysis of aqueous solutions

Electrolysis of aqueous solutions

(0)
A3 resource to help students visualise what is happening during the electrolysis of four different aqueous solutions (*AQA REQUIRED PRACTICAL). Splits the solutions into the anode and cathode. I tend to work through the first example on the visualiser in this order: 1 - Identify the four ions present in the solution 2 - Draw the two ions that would be attracted to the cathode in the cathode half, repeat for the anode. 3 - Use the rules printed at the top to then identify the product at each electrode. 4 - State the reason for each product (again using the rules at the top) Students can then try the other three examples on their own.

GCSE Physics flipped learning/revision booklet

(1)
This booklet fits the new AQA Combined and Separate Science Physics courses. This booklet is intended to be used as a flipped learning activity before the start of each topic, but can also be used as a independent revision booklet. See instructions on the front: Before the topic • Use your revision guide to answer the 10 comprehension questions covering the basics relating to that topic. • The aim is that you cover these beforehand so that we can spend lesson time on application of knowledge. • All information can be found on the revision guide pages that are referenced for each topic. After the topic • Look back over your original answers and add to them using purple pen. Extension Each topic will have an extension question that requires you to apply your knowledge of the basics. You can attempt this before or after the topic. The revision guide page references are for the Collins AQA guides.
