2 Virtual Learning Hubs 3 Success for all students requires purposeful planning

3 Personal Learning Plans - individualised homework schedules 4 Success for all is

dependent on measuring the effect of teaching on student learning. 4 ALU analysis of level of understanding

Analysis of Level of Understanding (ALU): Revision of Unit 1 & 2 Chemistry Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Analysis of Level of Understanding (ALU): Revision of Unit 1 & 2 Chemistry

Chemical Equations Level 1 Write the electrovalence for the ions listed below: Lithium ion

Carbonate Phosphate Aluminium ion

Level 2 Balance the following chemical equations: a) Zn(s) + HCl(aq) ZnCl2(aq) + H2(g) b) Mg(OH)2(aq) + H2SO4(aq) MgSO4(aq) + H2O(l) Level 3 Write the ionic equation for

the precipitation reaction between Barium chloride and Sulphate ions to form the precipitate Barium sulphate. * Dont forget to include states. Number of moles

List two formulae that can be used to calculate the number of moles. Define the variables and state the units. Redox Circle the correct answer:

Acids and Bases Circle the correct answer: Calculate the number of moles of 42.9 L of CH4 at 2 atm and 27oC. Permanganate (MnO4-) reacts State the difference between a weak acid and a dilute

with iodide (I-) to produce 2+ manganese(II) ions (Mn ) and acid. Iodine (I2). Write the half equations and the fully balanced redox equation for this reaction. Stoichiometry

List the mole ratio for the reactants in the following chemical equations: a) Redox reactions involve the a) Acid base reactions transfer of electrons/protons. involve the transfer of electrons/protons. a) CH3COOH(aq) + NaOH(aq) b) If a substance acts as an

oxidant it is reduced/oxidised. b) An acid is a substance that CH3COONa(aq) + H2O(l) will donate/accept a proton. c) If a substance acts as a reductant it is c) A base is a substance that reduced/oxidised. will donate/accept a proton. b) CH4(g) + 2O2(g) CO2(g) + 2H2O(g) d) When a substance is

oxidised the oxidation number increases/decreases. c) Na2CO3(aq) + CaCl2(aq) 2NaCl(aq) + CaCO3(s) State the formula that Calculate the oxidation Classify the following Copper(I) oxide can be would be used to calculate number for the bolded

reactions as a particular type formed from the oxidation of the number of moles when element in each of the of reaction pattern. For copper metal as shown in you are given the volume of following: example: NaOH(aq) + the chemical equation a gas at STP. HCl(aq) NaCl(aq) + H2O(l) is below:

Au 4Cu(s) + O2(g) 2Cu2O(s) acid + base salt + water. If 2.30 g of copper was MnO4 a) Mg(s) + 2HCl(aq) heated in a crucible with

MgCl2(aq) + H2(g) plenty of oxygen, calculate 2Cr2O7 b) CaCO3(aq) + 2HNO3(aq) the amount of copper oxide Ca(NO3)2(aq) + CO2(g) + that would form. H2O(l) Determine the pH of a

solution in which 20.0 mL of 0.25M NaOH is added to 13.0 mL of 0.42M HCl. Level 2 Level 1 Level 2
