Units 1 - 4

A typical Chemistry lesson involves four elements: lesson instructional video, semi-notes document, questions and experiment instructions. Students need a copy of the semi-notes before they start to work through the lesson. They will fill in the semi-notes and complete exercises as required. This document provides students with a comprehensive set of notes and will be a very useful tool for revision. The video presentation can be paused or replayed at any time and at the end of each lesson students will be asked to apply their knowledge, progressively develop a list of vocabulary and apply their understanding by completing questions given on the instructional videos and semi-notes. Students may be directed completing experiments to enhance their learning and are encouraged to contact their teacher if they need support.

As a student works through the lesson they will have the semi-notes in front of them and will copy notes and complete exercises on this document as required. .

This is lesson 2 from Water Chemistry.

In this topic students will explore the special properties (chemical and physical) of water which make it so important to living things and relate the properties to chemical bonding characteristics. In this lesson students will learn water as Universal solvent, properties of water to its structure and bonding. They will also learn to deduce solubility of common ionic substances by using a table of solubility rules and saturations of solutions.

This lesson will cover:
