Resources here for IBDP and A-Level Chemistry, as well as Edexcel IGCSE and AQA GCSE Chemistry. I have a huge range of resources for 11-14 so ask if you need something specific. After teaching for 13 years in the UK and in international schools I have built up quite a selection of teaching resources. You can also visit my site www.toptenteacher.co.uk.

Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Chemistry. Core Practical Summary.

(0)
All the chemistry core practical activities summarised onto 6 sides. As 15% of the assessed work for Edexcel/Pearson is based on practical experiments this is a useful revision aid that summarises all the required core practicals. It would be useful for revision with students or planning your GCSE (9-1) chemistry course to ensure all the required practical work is completed. Practical assessments included: Investigating inks Preparation of copper sulfate Investigating neutralisation Electrolysis of copper sulfate Acid-alkali titration Investigating reaction rates Combustion of alcohols Identifying ions Information includes: Dependent independent and controlled variables (where applicable) Required equipment Method and expected outcome of experiment Possible evaluation issues and improvements to method Safety aspects Also included template to design your own summary for Biology or Physics

IGCSE Section 1. States of Matter. Complete Lesson.

(1)
Introduction to IGCSE Chemistry and the first lesson in the topic 'States of Matter'. Dealing with changes of state between solids, liquids and gases and demonstrating diffusion with a choice of experiments depending on the level of student understanding and equipment available to you. Objectives: Can you describe the interconversions of solids, liquids & gases? (C) Can you explain the idea of diffusion with a practical example? (B) Can you apply the idea of diffusion to fully explain an example within both liquids and gases? (A/A*) Students expected to formulate their own ideas about diffusion and draw on knowledge from KS3.

Science Tasks for IBDP Theory of Knowledge

(0)
Involves some lab work and investigations to answer the following TOK related questions: How is Knowledge Created in Science? To what extent is it important for scientists “see” things the same way? To what extent do scientists follow a set problem solving process or method for creating knowledge? What is the relationship between accuracy and precision in scientific measurement?

(0)
Extra worksheets if students are struggling to access knowledge of Fundamental Ideas in Chemistry. 1. History of the Atom- Research task where students are expected find out about different scientists and how they used to understand what the atom looked like. 2. Research an element and find out the many different ways you can draw it. 3. Use blank periodic table and fill it in with as much information as you can find out. 4. Slightly more challenging worksheet, will involve some reading and processing information to answer questions on atomic structure. 5. Teacher lead practical on the alkali metals and water, students recording observations. 6. Filling in a table with numbers of protons, neutrons, electrons, mass number and proton number.

Uses of Limestone, Limestone and Building Materials, Lesson 1 (AQA 1.2.1) Complete lesson.

(0)
The 4th lesson in the 'Limestone and Building Materials' topic looking at uses of limestone and reactions of the carbonates. Lesson objectives: Most students should be able to: Recognise that limestone is a building material and state that it can also be used to make glass, cement and concrete. Complete a word equation for the thermal decomposition of limestone. Write the formula of calcium carbonate. Some students should also be able to: Explain the process of thermal decomposition of limestone. Resources included: 1. Questions on uses of limestone. 2. More questions on uses of limestone and quarrying limestone, could be used as homework. 3.
