Researching Chemistry (H)
"The Researching Chemistry unit allows learners to develop key skills of scientific investigation, and then to apply these skills when carrying out an open-ended investigation into a topical issue in chemistry."
As such it is ideal preparation for the Advanced Higher project.
At the moment there are two exemplar researching chemistry units:
On the pages linked to, you can find the original LTS/ES materials as well as suporting material SSERC has developed.
It was envisaged that there be a third, biodiesel, but that seemed to go missing in mysterious circumstances. It may yet resurface - watch this space.
SSERC was commissioned by SQA to produce some more exemplars for the Higher Assignment. We delegated the task and the three activities, along with an updated version of the fabled biodiesel exemplar, have been sent to SQA for inspection.
While there may be a few changes needed, we though it might be usefyul for you to see the sorts of things that have been produced so here are the links. Remember - these are not (as yet) approved activities.
