Summary

Each topic is designed for teaching over roughly 1-2 lessons.

This unit covers the fundamental nature of chemical substance, in terms of studying elements, compounds and mixtures. Although these are familiar terms to many students, this unit develops this idea further given the particulate nature of matter in these three chemical forms. Chemical equations are introduced as a way of representing chemical reactions, whether this be in simple word form, or more usefully, as a balanced chemical equation. The necessary mathematics skills are then introduced within the context of atomic size and the electrical charge of the main sub-atomic particles – these central topics appreciating that the development of maths skills is key. Typically, the unit introduces new concepts using novel and innovative ideas, and also employs an appropriate delivery pace, so that students have the opportunity to maximise their learning. The model of the atom, together with its limitations, are then discussed with time devoted to how our understanding of atomic structure has evolved through time. The unit brings to life a highly fascinating aspect of chemistry using beautifully illustrated and engaging examples, together with many questions that students of all abilities should find both highly informative and rewarding.

The complete series covers the AQA GCSE (9-1) Chemistry 8462 and combined science (Trilogy) 8464 specifications for Chemistry. Content relating to the separate Chemistry specification or Higher level material is indicated throughout for easy identification.

What people say...

All the resources I have brought from you previously have been excellent and a great help in delivering my lessons for BTEC Level 2 and GCSE.
