Properties and Uses of Substances SCN 15 & 16 - Level 4

SCN 4-15a

Through gaining an understanding of the structure of atoms and how they join, I can begin to connect the properties of substances with their possible structures.

SCN 4-16a

I have carried out research into novel materials and can begin to explain the scientific basis of their properties and discuss the possible impacts they may have on society.

Smart Materials (workshop) – Some short activities looking at the properties of commercially available smart/novel chemical materials.

SCN 4-16b

Through evaluation of experimental results, I can demonstrate my understanding of conservation of mass.

Formula of magnesium oxide – microscale – a small scale version of the experiment to determine the mass of oxygen added to burning magnesium and hence work out its formula.
