This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, asks students to predict the masses of solutions from given masses of solute and solvent.
Students also need to explain what happens to the solute in solution and to explain the emergent properties of the solution. It is primarily aimed at the 11–14 age range, although it may also be used to check the understanding of students aged 14-16 on the conservation of mass in dissolving.
