Worksheets and lesson ideas to challenge students to think about mole calculations, titrations and equations (GCSE and Key Stage 3)

What does a mole look like?

Students must master the mole and other quantitative aspects if they are to excel in chemistry and fall in love with this fascinating subject. The quantitative nature of chemistry can be scary for many students and teachers, but initial challenges can be overcome if concepts are introduced in a concrete way. Don’t just start with balancing equations, determining empirical formulas and working out moles – do it in the context of an exciting demonstration and make the abstract a little more meaningful! 

Students will also need lots of practice to consolidate and extend their understanding of quantitative chemistry.
