Part 2

4.30 – 6.30pm

Redox chemistry (pre 16)

Learning objectives

 Participants will learn about:

  • the sequence of key ideas that students need in order to understand redox chemistry
  • how microscale chemistry can be used to help students ‘get to grips with electrons’
  • the common misconceptions and challenges that students experience with redox chemistry

 Learning outcomes

 Participants will be able to:

  • design key experiments, demonstrations and activities that develop student understanding of redox chemistry
  • challenge students to think about electron flow in a chemical reaction
  • plan a sequence of microscale experiments to support student understanding of key ideas, including electrolysis
  • recognise common misconceptions that arise and adapt teaching methods to minimise them

Redox chemistry (post-16)

Learning objectives

Participants will learn about:

  • the sequence of key ideas that students need in order to understand redox chemistry
  • how microscale chemistry can be used to help students ‘get to grips with electrons’
  • the common misconceptions and challenges that students experience with redox chemistry

Learning outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • design key experiments, demonstrations and activities that develop student understanding of electrode potentials, oxidations and redox titrations
  • apply ideas of electron flow to predict whether a chemical reaction will take place
  • understand the benefits of using microscale experiments to support student understanding of key ideas in redox chemistry
  • recognise common misconceptions that arise, for example around electrode potentials, and adapt teaching methods to minimise them
