Elementary Chemistry – Ensuring the Basics Are Taught Well RM356 / B02
- Probability linked to random motion explains a lot of sub-microscopic behaviour
- How theories have developed – atoms, molecules, elements and compounds
- Common misconceptions and how to avoid them.
- How to successfully present practical demonstrations
Session 2: Chemical Patterns
- Hook your chemistry to the Periodic Table – it’s all about electrons!
- Groups and Periods – what do they tell us?
- Metals and the reactivity series
- Base chemistry – and acids!
Session 3: Energy Matters
- Why do chemical reactions occur? -Remember, atoms don’t care!
- Misconceptions around exothermic and endothermic reactions
- Types of reactions and writing equations
- What makes practical work in chemistry effective?
- Develop a wider understanding of the behaviour of sub-microscopic particles
- Appreciate that energy considerations are as important in chemistry as the chemicals themselves.
- Make more sense of chemistry by using all the patterns and principles available
- Consider the value of practical demonstrations and how to make them successful
- Consider different – more effective – ways of teaching basic chemistry and take away resources to help with the next day’s lessons!
