Chemistry

Year 10

Tute’s team of experienced teachers have planned our lessons to work alongside what students are studying in school; to enable catch-up, to consolidate something that was difficult to master in class or to help revise for exams. To make is easy to choose lessons for different subjects, year groups and levels, we have organised lessons into topics that are fully aligned with the National Curriculum ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the curriculum that makes sense!

All you need to do is select the topic and then the level you feel is appropriate and you will find a list of suitable lessons that you can book for just £10 ex VAT

Chemistry: AQA Trilogy - The periodic table revision


Topic 14 begins with clear definitions of elements, compounds and mixtures which are essential key words in chemistry. Different separation techniques will be investigated specifically when looking at miscible and immiscible mixtures. We will discuss the atom, including the history, structure and deducing the electronic structure. Following on we will use the structure of the atom to describe and explain physical and chemical properties of metals and non-metals. The topic finishes with a look at how the periodic table was first arranged and how, due to further understanding of chemistry, it has developed into the periodic table we know today.

Elements, mixtures and compounds

To define and identify elements, to define and identify compounds and to define and identify mixtures.

Mixtures & separation

To define a mixture, to explain the different techniques of separating immiscible mixtures and to explain the different techniques of separating miscible mixtures.

History of the atom

To summarise how our understanding of atomic structure has evolved.

Atomic structure

To describe the structure of an atom and to deduce electronic structure.

Electronic structure and the periodic table

To explain the arrangement of elements in the periodic table, to describe the physical properties of metals and non-metals and to describe the chemical properties of metals and non-metals.

History of the periodic table

To describe the early ideas of how the periodic table was arranged, to describe how John Newlands developed how the periodic table was arranged and to describe how Dmitri Mendeleev discovered the modern periodic table.

Chemistry: WJEC Double Award - The nature of substances and chemical reactions revision


This topic brings together the fundamental ideas of Chemistry. It investigates the ideas of elements as pure substances; compounds as substances in which different atoms are chemically joined together and mixtures as substances in which particles are not chemically joined. The topic introduces ideas of measuring elements and compounds in terms of atomic and molecular masses, percentage composition.

Structure of the atom

To describe the structure of an atom and to deduce electronic structure.

Atomic number, mass and isotopes

To recap the mass and number of sub-atomic particles in an atom, to explain what isotopes are and to define and calculate the relative atomic mass of an atom.

Elements, mixtures and compounds

To define and identify elements, to define and identify compounds and to define and identify mixtures.

Electronic structure and the periodic table

To describe how and why atomic structure is linked to the periodic table and to summarise the differences between metals and non-metals.

Ionic compounds

To describe how ions are formed, to draw diagrams to represent ionic bonds and to predict the ionic compounds formed from given elements.

Relative formula mass and percentages

To calculate the relative formula mass of a compound, to calculate the relative molecular mass of a molecule and to calculate the percentage composition of an element in a formula.

Safe & Secure

Safeguarded

Tute is used in hundreds of schools and is approved by local authorities. We conform to the highest safeguarding standards, and have the necessary tools to help support young people with SEND.

Recorded

Every Tute session is recorded. This means that we monitor every lesson and ensure the very best quality of teaching. Parents can review the lesson too, as can the student for revision.

Professional

Our teachers are qualified, and are DBS checked. As trained professionals they have a natural authority, and can manage effective and engaging classes.
