Summary

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

This unit delves deeper into the understanding of chemical elements introduced at Key Stage 3, looking at how elements are grouped into families based on their similar chemical behaviour. The unit also takes students on a fascinating journey through time to study how the periodic table has evolved, what were the key thoughts and who were the key ‘thinkers’ in forging its present-day form. A focus on the highly reactive elements in groups 1 and 7 of the periodic table is presented with well thought-through examples that bring this fascinating aspect of chemistry to life.  The elements in group 0 are compared and contrasted with those in the other main groups, answering some of the fundamental questions regarding their remarkable chemical inactivity.  The unit then moves on to have a brief look at the transition metals, both in terms of their unique properties and their differences when compared to main group elements, particularly those in group 1. The final topic brings together many of the key skills in this essential unit, particularly the ability to interpret information from the periodic table in terms of electronic structure and structure and bonding.

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...

The lessons are designed to develop deep understanding so students master the mathematical concepts and techniques involved.

Heather Davis. Professional Development Lead, NCETM

The fact that the resources are so thorough and there is a WS and HWK for every lesson, has saved me a huge amount of planning time as there is already plenty for students to do.

Helen Webb. Science teacher, Lutterworth College
