Summary

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

This particular unit has genuine impact as it discusses and presents some of the main issues regarding the Earth’s scarce resources. A study of the atmosphere in terms of its modern-day composition and also its evolution begins in Topic 1, with many fascinating and highly illustrative examples that will provide students with ample food for thought. Using the Earth’s resources is the next study in terms of how we can sustain resources for future generations. Essential resources for life, like potable water is discussed with attention given to the chemical principles involved in its purification. Reducing resource waste by recycling, and the lessening of environmental impact by reducing energy consumption are key aspects of this interesting area of study, as is the role of life cycle assessments in the determination of a product’s impact and life span. The everyday use of valuable and ‘energy-rich’ materials, for example, metals, glasses and polymers brings the unit to a highly interesting and thought-provoking conclusion.

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.
