ABOUT THIS WEBINAR

This one-hour webinar will give experienced teachers, HODs and teachers who are looking to improve student performances, a range of approaches to deal with some of the more difficult topics on the A-level specification. In particular we will look at:

  • Demanding mole calculations & titrations
  • pH & Buffers
  • Understanding organic mechanisms
  • Getting to grips with organic reactions

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING

    • Increase your confidence in delivering some of the more challenging A-level Chemistry topics
    • Gain strategies to challenge your more able students
    • Identify strategies which will allow more of your students to be successful
    • Enable students to make their own exam questions and so gain high levels of understanding

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Teachers of A level Chemistry
  • Heads of Chemistry
  • Heads of Science
