Curriculum topics

The quantitative chemistry worksheets cover the following topics:

  • atoms and molecules
  • elements and compounds
  • reactants and products in a chemical equation
  • simple chemical formula
  • law of conservation of mass
  • writing simple word equations
  • writing simple balanced symbol equations
  • calculating the mass of a reactant or product in a chemical reaction given all other reacting masses. 

If learners successfully answer questions on these topics, they can attempt the extension questions. These cover:

  • using the periodic table to find the relative atomic masses of named elements
  • calculating relative formula mass.

Independent learning and metacognition

The ‘What do I understand?’ page is common to all worksheets. Learners are encouraged to develop independent learning skills and can use their reflection as a guide for revision. The feedback will also help you to identify areas where a whole class needs attention.


The teacher guidance provides model answers for each worksheet, plus guidance on learners’ common misconceptions. Learners can use the model answers to self- or peer assess.
