Spot the Bonding *suitable for home teaching*

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, provides a relatively quick way of assessing students’ awareness of different bond types. Topics covered in this material are chemical bonding including: ionic, covalent, metallic, polar, hydrogen, dipole-dipole, van der Waals, solvation, dative, double,...

Revising the Periodic Table *suitable for home teaching*

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is intended for students in the 14–16 year old age range, who have studied the Periodic Table. This exercise is based on concept mapping, an important method for exploring student’s ideas and a useful study technique. The exercise provides a concept map for the...

Word Equations *suitable for home teaching*

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, assesses students’ ability to complete word equations through a set of practice exercises. The word equations are for the following examples: • Reaction between acids and alkalis. • Reaction between acids and metals. • Reaction between acids and metal carbonates...

The Melting Temperature of Carbon *suitable for home teaching*

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is suitable for students who have studied bonding and structure and can calculate relative molecular mass. Students are provided with information on some elements which they use to calculate the formula mass of other elements. They are then provided with a table...

Ionic Bonding *suitable for home teaching*

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, is designed to elicit alternative conceptions about ionic bonding that have been found to be commonplace among students. Students are provided with a diagram showing part of a slice through a three dimensional crystal structure of sodium chloride, along with...

Flight Charges

Countries charge for planes to fly through their airspace even if the plane does not land. Different countries levy different charges, therefore plane companies consider a number of different routes and calculate the associated charges with each route. The formula used to fly over Europe is considered and an...

APU Science Report for Teachers 10: Metals at Age 15

This APU report for teachers focuses on the performance of students aged 15 in a range of test questions concerning metals. This subject was chosen since metals are the commonest examples of elements which students meet in their everyday lives. Questions reported were...

APU Science Report for Teachers 7: Electricity at Age 15

This APU report for teachers focuses on the performance of students aged 15 in a range of test questions concerning electricity. It presents the findings in a sequence in which it suggests that different activities are generally encountered by students. An...

APU Science Report for Teachers 2: Science Assessment Framework at Age 13 and 15

This APU Science report for teachers sets out the view of science that underpinned decisions about what to assess in the surveys of students at ages 13 and 15. The view led to attention being focused on activities associated with solving problems scientifically. These...
