There are 5 worksheets, 5 homework tasks, and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
* These topics contain content suitable for separate Chemistry students only.
Each topic is designed for teaching over roughly 1-2 lessons.
A more in-depth study of some important reactions of the alkenes begins this unit, for those studying GCSE chemistry. The unit then focuses on some of the important chemistry of alcohols, carboxylic acids and polymers, and continues to exemplify how the molecules from crude oil continue to play essential roles in our lives using highly engaging and thoughtful examples. The collaboration between this unit and Units 1 and 3 is significant as this unit brings together, reinforces and further enhances an understanding of several areas of study, particularly those involving structure and bonding. The ability for students to use and apply understanding introduced in one area of chemistry to another, is a key skill that lies at the heart of chemistry and is encouraged in this unit.
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?
The GCSE units have been written to satisfy the specification for the separate Chemistry 8462 and Trilogy 8464 specification for the new AQA 9-1GCSEs. 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

What people say...
A generation ahead of everything else. Perfect resources to give to non-specialists to deliver lessons with authority.

The units we have ordered are proving really useful and helpful with development of materials for new specs. The Maths for D&T have been particularly helpful.
