Summary

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

This unit develops further ideas introduced at Key Stage 3 on the particulate nature of matter. An essential unit for students to master, the journey begins with the development of ideas relating to states of matter, then moves rapidly onto a study of the various key structural types. The ability for students to compartmentalise different substances into one of the main structural types is a key skill, and also highly useful, as it offers the ability to predict physical properties of materials. This is a beautifully illustrated unit consisting of highly interesting and engaging examples, including mention of useful and innovative modern-day materials. The unit concludes by delving into the fascinating world of metals and finishes with an exciting and highly contemporary focus on nanoparticles.

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...

A fantastic set of resources to support both teachers and students in the delivery of the new computing curriculum. We would be lost without it.
