Nuffield Chemistry: Sample Scheme Stage III
Stage III was the last part of the Nuffield Chemistry Sample Scheme for O-level Chemistry. It was designed to give students the opportunity to apply the skills and ideas they had met in Stages I and II to a number of selected fields of study. At O-level each student was examined on the work done in two Options.
The options in the first edition of the Sample Scheme were:
2. Crystals and their orderliness
4. Metals and Alloys
5. Chemical changes and the production of electrical energy
6. An investigation into the structure of a few compounds
7. Giant molecules
8. The Chemical Industry
9. Historical Topics
10. Acidity - alkalinity
11. Analysis with a purpose
12. 'Atoms into ions' or 'Electron transfer'
13. Periodicity and atomic structure

This resource was designed to help students aged 15-16 to build up their notes while working through selected options in Stage III of the Nuffield Chemistry Sample Scheme. The plan was that students would record their work on blank sheets inserted to face each printed page. In this way the authors hoped that...
The Nuffield Chemistry team produced guidance for teachers in a Sample Scheme covering ages 11-16 in three stages.
The developers were keen to emphasise that the scheme was only a sample, and that many other items of chemical subject-matter could be taught using the Nuffield approach; an approach which put...
