Summary

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

Chemical change is a fundamental aspect to the understanding of chemistry, and this unit focuses on many of the key reaction types that underpin a sound understanding of this fascinating science.  Reaction types are studied as individual and beautifully illustrated ‘themes’ throughout the unit, with each type being introduced within an interesting context. Topics begin by looking at displacement reactions and using the reactivity series – both ideas met at Key Stage 3 – with these ideas being extended and applied to both the familiar, and more importantly, the unfamiliar in terms of their chemical context. The idea of redox reactions involving a transfer of electrons provides a step up from simple oxygen transfer that would have been met previously. Reactions of acids with metals, metal oxides and metal hydroxides may also be familiar to students, but the interpretation of these reactions in terms of proton or hydrogen ion transfer will be new and inspiring. The unit concludes with a study of how salts can be made in the laboratory, with particular focus on experimental technique and method.

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's included in the toolkit?

Chemistry teaching toolkit

The GCSE units have been written to satisfy the specification for the separate Chemistry 8462 and Trilogy 8464 specification for the new AQA 9-1 GCSEs. Each unit contains:

  • PowerPoint slides for each topic
  • Detailed lesson plans
  • Learning objectives and outcomes
  • Worksheets and homework activities with answers
  • End-of-unit, exam-style assessment test with answers
  • Other material and links to online resources

What people say...

The PowerPoints were thorough and detailed and helped my knowledge of the subject as a non specialist.

Thomas Fincham. Science teacher, Lutterworth College

Professional looking resources that would enable consistency within the department and the use of worksheet and homework task that comprehensively covered the spec points.
