AQA A-Level Chemistry DNA & Anticancer Drugs

3 Resources
I have found this part of the new specification to be lacking good resources, so I am slowly building mine up for this area of the course. So far this bundle comprises a PowerPoint on the structure of DNA and the action of the anticancer drug cisplatin; a set of 15 MCQs with answers; and a learning grid which makes a great revision resource on the topic.

Hess' Law Calculations Worksheet

(0)
I have collated a range of different question types in this activity sheet based on Hess' Law thermochemical cycles. The focus is on using standard enthalpy of combustion and standard enthalpy of formation data to perform the required calculations. Suitable for all major exam boards, solutions provided.
AQA AS/Year 1 Chemistry Revision: Bonding Learning Grid
prhiltonprhilton

AQA AS/Year 1 Chemistry Revision: Bonding Learning Grid

(0)
Designed as an AS/Year 1 A-Level Chemistry revision task. The learning grid allows groups of 2 or 3 students to work together to review the topic. Each student rolls 2 dice to get a 'grid reference' and they then have to explain what is contained in that square. This can be made more challenging by rolling the dice twice and making links between the 2 squares identified. There is a second version attached which allows students to land on a ? square, where they answer an exam-style question. Includes a learning checklist for the topic.
AQA A-Level Chemistry Organic Synthesis/NMR/Chromatography Learning Grids
prhiltonprhilton

AQA A-Level Chemistry Organic Synthesis/NMR/Chromatography Learning Grids

(0)
This resource is intended as a collaborative revision activity. It is suitable for the Organic synthesis (3.3.14), Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (3.3.15) and Chromatography (3.3.16) topics of the new AQA A-Level Chemistry course. Students work in small groups and take turns to roll 2 dice in order to determine a square on the grid. The student must then describe/explain the contents of the square to the rest of the group. This can be made more challenging by determining two separate squares and making links between them both. There is a second grid containing ? squares, where students could be required to answer an exam-style question, or some other activity - this is entirely up to you! Includes a separate learning checklist for each topic.
AQA A-Level Chemistry Learning Grids (Full Course)

AQA A-Level Chemistry Learning Grids (Full Course)

(4)
Every single learning grid to cover all the AQA A-Level (Years 1 and 2) topics (inorganic, physical and organic) for the new AQA A-Level Chemistry specification, that's 30 topic areas - a total of 60 grids. There are no grids for Optical isomerism and Kp and the topics are rather short. The learning grids are ideal for end of topic revision. Students work in small groups and roll 2 dice to determine a square on the grid. They then have to explain to the rest of the group what is contained in the square. An alternative to make this more challenging is to roll both dice 2 times and determine 2 squares. The student then has to make a link between the contents of both squares. Each grid has a second grid containing 6 ? If students land on one of these squares they must answer an exam-style question on the topic. Each learning grid has a revision checklist with it
