Lock and key mechanism of enzyme action

I have made a deliberately clunky representation of this, using gel-pen type colours. Just the sort of thing to amuse some sixth formers. Relish its unprofessionalness. I do. Double click on the html file, and it will open in your browser. Please note: in order to provide a rich interactive experience, my resources are mini-web sites local to your computer. After unzipping, they comprise a folder containing the main .html file and another folder containing the graphic resources and my coding to make the resource work. Double click on the .html file and the resource will work. If, however , you move or delete any of the files from this hierarchy, the resource will not work.

A little bit of ‘learning without working’ activity for the end of term, in black and white for easy cheap photocopying. Suitable for all abilities, but earlier years may need to look some clues up. The answers are included.

Drag& Drop Functional Group with formulae

This is a variation of my ‘drag and drop functional group’ activity. In this case you drag the structural formula to the correct name of the functional group. If it is correct it will stick, otherwise it won’t. Could be used around the whiteboard as a quick AFL. This is a simple html5 document- simply double click on the html file and it will load in your web browser. (nb because the table is long, you may have to zoom out in your web browser to complete.) ** Please note:** in order to provide a rich interactive experience, my interactive resources are mini-web sites local to your computer.

Quick and short presentation on how to balance the manganate (vii) half equation, to save you time. I have now added the oxidation of ethanol by acidified potassium dichromate (VI) as another example.
