Mass and Dissolving

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...

Word Equations

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...

Elements, Compounds and Mixtures

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, focuses on the distinction between pure substances and mixtures. Students are first asked to define the terms element, mixture and compound to show their understanding. They are then provided with a series of particle diagrams to classify as element, mixture or...

Revising Acids

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, uses concept mapping to assess students' understanding of the topic of acids and bases.

This technique encourages active processing of information and improving study skills by getting students to think about their own learning. This exercise is designed...

Changes in Chemistry

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, asks students to explain what is meant by chemical and physical change.

Students are presented with diagrams showing the molecules, or other particles, of three substances before and after a change. They are asked to classify these examples as either a...

Chemical Comparisons

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, asks students to suggest similarities and differences between various pairs of chemical systems presented as simple diagrams, such as iron and sulfur, water and sugar solution and a variety of particle models. There are thirty-six different sets of diagrams in...

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 drawn from the pool used in APU surveys,...

Nuffield Chemistry: Chemistry - Introduction and Guide

One of the first books to be produced by the Nuffield Science Teaching Project in the 1960s, this introduction outlines the Nuffield Chemistry scheme and how its new approach to teaching and assessment aimed to modernise the teaching of the subject for students aged 11-16.

The chapters are:
