AQA (new) Physics Triple and Combined knowledge organisers (Paper 1)

(2)
Knowledge organisers for the new AQA GCSE 2016 Physics syllabus. Included are knowledge organisers which cover the whole content of the GCSE Physics paper 1 exam for** both trilogy (combined) and triple (separate science) syllabuses**. Each knowledge organiser has been split into sections following closely the AQA specification. Topics covered are: P1 Conservation and dissipation of energy, P2 Energy transfer by heating, P3 Energy resources, P4 Electric circuits, P5 electricity in the home, P6 Molecules and matter and P7 Radioactivity. The triple content within these chapters (like Gas pressure, temperature, infra red radiation, nuclear radiation, medicine, fission and fusion are also covered and colour coded so students know which content is relevant. Key tier 3 vocabulary has also been clearly defined as a separate section in each knowledge organiser. Any graphs and equations that they need to know included.

A set of 128 printable flash cards suitable for the AQA A-Level Chemistry topic of Organic chemistry. Questions cover theory on the naming, sketching of displayed, structural and skeletal formulae, fractional distillation, cracking, reforming, oxidation, combustion, hydrogenation, electrophilic addition, inductive effect, polymerisation etc. Covers all the informtion they need to know about introductory chemistry on the alkanes and alkenes including the mechanisms of free radical substitution and electrophilic additon (markovnikov). In PowerPoint format, the cue cards print out in the correct format. Once printed, all it takes 1 minute to slice the cards and prepare a set, is formatted so the answers will show on the reverse of the question card.
