At the moment, the Search Engine will search all of my websites so expect most hits to be for the older version of my website until I have completely transferred all the resources over.
I'm presently writing Topic 5 - Calculations and Topic 6 - Acids and Bases (working titles, may change).
At that point I'll be rebranding the App as N5ChemTutor1 and will start charging a modest fee for the App. If I achieve sufficient sales, then I will be able to start on N5ChemTutor2.
N5ChemTutor App (1.4.1) is under review and should appear on App store in next few days.
This included Topic 4 - Structure & Bonding
Good luck to those sitting Chemistry Exams on 8th May!
N5ChemTutor App (1.3.1) was launched on App store.
This included Topic 3 - Formula & Equation Writing
N5ChemTutor App (1.2.1) was launched on App store.
This included Topic 2 - Atomic Structure and Nuclear Chemistry
N5ChemTutor App (1.1.3) was launched on App store.
This included Topic 1 - Reaction Rates and Investigation Skills

S3 Chemistry Update 9
Nearly finished Topic 2 - Reactivity, so have produced a Test for this Topic.
S3 Topic3 PetrochemicalsTest (pdf)
Next we will be tackling a Topic on Reactivity which will prepare the ground for the equivalent Topic in N5 Chemistry (Topic 7 - Metal Chemistry). We will also take on the second booklet of Formula & Equation writing.

S3 Chemistry Update 7
Completed what will be our Topic 2 in S3 - Petrochemicals. No time to make massive changes but will do for this year.
This was traditionally a more 'self-taught' Topic backed up by Videos & Animations. I've included a slightly streamlined version and created a web page to access them from.

S3 Chemistry Update 5
Split Formula Writing into 2 parts. Book 1 will be taught in S3 while Book 2 will be used with N5. Have also fallen into line and sulphur is now sulfur.

I'm posting a couple of Galleries of screen grabs to illustrate the on-line Homework I'm using to further consolidate the work going on in the class. We do 1 a week on average.

S3 Chemistry Update 3
I've produced a booklet of Practice Questions to help the S3 get ready for our Topic Test. I've provided A4 and A5 booklet versions.
Topic 1 'Changes' - Practice Questions
S3 Chemistry Update 2
Topic 1 is an introductory, largely practical topic building on Chemical Changes met in S1/2 and including a deeper look at Elements & Compounds and Reaction Rates with particular emphasis on Graph Drawing.

S3 Chemistry Update 1
This a 'retrospective' post as we started the new version of our S3 course last June. Having tried to cover the CFE E's & O's by end of S2, we are treating this years course as an opportunity to give pupils a truer taste of Chemistry to better inform their choices for S4. We will also attempt to identify those best suited to N4 or N5 next year.
Whilst confident that this will be a better S3 experience, we are still unsure how to strike a balance between 'preparation for N5' whilst leaving enough to offer progression to N4 for those likely to struggle too much with N5. In the future we may need to have two versions of our S3 course to manage this.
