A set of worksheets covering the 3 external standards Chem 2.4 Bonding, structure and energy, Chem 2.5 Organic compounds and Chem 2.6 Chemical reactivity. (produced 2012)
These 19 worksheets are perfect for unpacking the content and practising NCEA type questions and calculations. They are write-on and come with complete answers which can be projected on to screens. The following is an example of one of the worksheetsWk_3_Questions_Covalent bonding networks.doc
A resource for teaching the NCEA Level 3 Chemistry standard 3.2 (91388), Demonstrate understanding of spectroscopic data in chemistry. (produced 2012)
There are four main parts to the resource:
A possible lesson overview/plan. Each lesson is broken down into several activities, including notes, links to various useful websites, clips, and exercises.
Teacher notes. These provide extra detail and non-essential background information that may be used to enhance lessons or extend more able students.
PowerPoint presentations. These have the key points for each of the three spectra and outline what it is that the students need to know.
Worksheets. The set of six worksheets (and answers) give students the opportunity to consolidate and practise what they have been learning. The following is an example of one of the worksheets : _2_Infrared_spectroscopy.doc
This set of worksheets is based on the 6 standards below. Each worksheet has a range of questions focusing on a specific aspect of the standard. All worksheets come with a full set of answers. All 6 standards can be purchased as a set, or standards may be purchased individually. (Produced 2011).
