Learning Grids for A Level OCR A Chemistry

A brilliant idea designed to support weaker students. Students have to read their textbook/notes to complete a grid of questions in specification order. Progressive structure encourages students to work through a topic logically, helping them grasp the basics before tackling the applied questions.

A godsend for students who find it difficult to absorb information in class and for the less willing. Leads to active learning, identification of key points and the structuring of information.

Extremely valuable and clearly set out...

...I would not hesitate to recommend this resource to both teachers and learners

  • Particularly supports 'hands-on' learners who need to write information down to absorb it
  • An easy-to-set, yet valuable homework
  • Requires minimal preparation and interaction from the teacher - great for cover lessons!
  • Result! Revision notes - with full spec coverage!

Cross-referenced to approved textbooks for new spec:

  • OCR A Level Chemistry A, A Level Year 1 and AS (Pearson, 2015. ISBN 978-1447990789)
  • OCR A Level Chemistry A, A Level Year 2 (Pearson, 2015. ISBN 978-1447990819)

Fantastic! Very detailed and structures the questions in a clear way which follows the spec well...It provides a fantastic resource for homework, boosters or an ongoing workbook.

L.Morgan, Head of Chemistry & Customer

This is a really helpful resource that students are appreciating.
It uses good questions to check student understanding of the content being taught.
It keeps the students on track with what they are consolidating between each lesson.
It is closely matched to the course specification.
It takes the effort out of checking that students are keeping up with the course.

Clear layout used throughout, plenty of space for the students to complete their responses. Thorough coverage of the new specification. this is a progressive resource, enabling students to build on prior knowledge and understanding and develop it further.

J Morgan, Assistant Headteacher & Customer

The most beautiful part of the resource is that the questions in each topic are systematic and in line with the curriculum content.

An excellent resource, updated for the new OCR Chemistry specification. Enables students to supplement information from class notes – which they often do not complete well in a problem based approach as we use this interactively for students.

J Morgan, Assistant Headteacher & Customer

Extremely valuable and clearly set out. I would not hesitate to recommend this resource to both teachers and learners. The resource is excellent in both introducing the AS level pupil to the subject and areas covered, and as a revision in thermodynamics and periodic table trends in the basics for those students at higher levels. I found the resource to be invaluable in enabling the learner to learn, and the teacher to teach this subject more effectively and rapidly.

Quick questions, so good to use within lessons as a plenary or starter, or to be used as a comprehensive revision tool to identify areas for improvement.

Students can self-assess with the confidence that they are marking themselves objectively.

Presentation is outstanding. The diagrams and mechanisms are drawn clearly and precisely.

D Ojjeh, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

I like this resource, it is clear and covers the main points of the specification well. This resource is comprehensive in its answers which will support students with their learning.

I feel this is a very good revision resource as it covers the entire of module 6 in order of the specification and so students could use this to check their knowledge.
