Nuffield Advanced Chemistry (Third Edition): Teachers’ Guide

In the third edition of the teachers’ guide for Nuffield Advanced Chemistry, each topic started with a summary of content, estimates of the teaching time needed, and teaching objectives. Most sections of topics also included a suggested treatment which was a guide to teaching the material, and there were answers to questions and answers to the study tasks.

There was also a guide to each experiment. As well as lists of the resources needed for each experiment, there was information about the hazards associated with all the chemicals. The hazards were listed in a different style from that used in the students' book because they were intended to help technicians, particularly when making up solutions from pure solids or liquids.
