C3 Atoms, Elements and Compounds (Combined Science)

But just how small is an atom? – from TED-Ed.

Here are some key terms for this topic: Key Terms C3

C3.1 PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL CHANGES

C3.2 ELEMENTS, COMPOUNDS & MIXTURES

C3.3 ATOMIC STRUCTURE & THE PERIODIC TABLE

A decent power-point, although we do not need to know about isotopes:

Short videos on what is an atom and parts of an atom (from The Virtual School) in English; and here’s one in Australian. Science Bank 17 (Atomic Structure):Part 1 – structure of the atom, Part 2 – atomic number & mass number, Part 3 – electronic structure.

The Virtual School have made a number of other short videos. Here’s one on atomic & mass number; this covers energy levels & electronic configuration. Some practice exam questions on atoms go here and here. And here’s a poem.

GCSE s-cool – Atomic Structure – revision notes & animations, practise exam questions & a revision summary. Skoool Chemistry – click on ‘5. Atoms & the Periodic Table’ for excellent lessons that take you through atomic structure; also a glossary of key terms. For Doc Brown’s Chemistry quizzes, word-fills, crosswords and study notes go here and just scroll down to ‘17.Atomic structure, isotopes, electronic structure’.. Chemactive worksheets & answers just click on ‘Atomic Structure questions’.

C3.4 IONS & IONIC BONDS

In case you didn’t get that, here’s a lesson on ionic bonding. Some other Virtual School videos include the formulae of ionic compounds and their names part 1 and part 2.

C3.5 MOLECULES & COVALENT BONDS

A 15m lesson covering Ionic, Covalent & Metallic bonding from ChemistryKlipz (you don’t need metallic bonding in this topic):


A nice review of bonding and here’s a song:

And now we need another song. Oh, here’s Mr W singing his Octet Rule Song.

Revision sites covering Bonding:

GCSE s-cool – Chemical Bonding – revision notes & animations, practise exam questions & a revision summary. For Doc Brown’s Chemistry quizzes, word-fills, crosswords and study notes go here and just scroll down to ‘18.Structure, Properties and Bonding of Materials’.

Skoool Chemistry – click on ‘1. Structures & Bonding’ for excellent lessons that take you through the topic; also a glossary of key terms. Worksheets from Mr Guch that cover Properties of Ionic & Covalent Compounds.

2.2 Water

BioKnowledgy 2.2 Water from Chris Paine (at Dulwich College Shangai) – taken from his fabulous blog BioKnowledgy.

2.2 Water notes to complete (created by Mrs Green).

2.2 Water in 14m from Dan Rott:

Many assessment statements are also covered by Stephanie Castle (with more being added all the time).

Here is a short, simple animation to show hydrogen bonding between water molecules.

An excellent video from Mr Andersen at Bozeman Hugh School: Water, a polar molecule:

How polarity makes water behave strangely – a 4m TED-Ed video from Christina Kleinberg.

In Crash Course Biology #2: Water – Liquid Awesome, Hank teaches us why water is one of the most fascinating and important substances in the universe.
