A set of powerpoint based activities designed as starters to cover a wide range of maths skills for GCSE Sciences, questions are varied in theme- some chemistry, some biology some physics. These were used over a course of months but could also be used for revision. Designed for the AQA trilogy syllabus as starter or plenary tasks but just as useful for AQA triple students needing to review the basics.
Covers: Area, bar charts, correlation, interpreting bar charts, linear graphs, mean,mode, median and range, probability and percentage change, rearranging formula, scatter diagrams, sig figs, std form and ratios, substituting value, tables and estimates, tables and pie charts, uncertainty, using tangents. For each a question or two and an answer slide.
Self guided workbooks/revision books chemistry. I have given these as revision tasks and also as on-going hwk to middle ability classes.
Atomic structure- Fundamentals of chemistry (10 pages)
Structure and bonding- covalent and ionic bonding (15 pages)
Structure and properties- bonding and giant structures (8 pages)
Hydrocarbons (20 pages)
Energy and the rate and extend of chemical change (16 pages)
Chemical changes ( 16 pages)
Chemical quantities and calculations ( 8 pages)
Each booklet has tasks to complete as well as exam questions or exam style questions, a keyword to fill page.
Information powerpoint for Module 5: Transition elements. Covers the d-block, properties of transition elements, ligands and complex ions, substitution reactions and reactions of ions. 81 slides long. Information for each section followed by a couple of question with answers. Designed for OCR A spec but could easily be tweaked for AQA.
Powerpoints with quiz slides. 90 questions:
What it is (20 questions). Pupils name the lab equipment from picture.
Name the element (20 questions). Pupils name the element from the clue/picture.
General knowledge science (10 questions). Pupils recall key terms/ideas from general KS3 science.
What am I? (20 questions). Pupils work out what the object/thing is from the clue.
Famous scientists (10 questions).
Lots of pictures and bit of fun for the end of term while keeping the science 'theme' if too much fun is not allowed!
Answers in a separate powerpoint. Answer sheet included made in word.
