Part of the series Achieve! Science.
Achieve! Science Understanding - Chemistry will assist teachers to develop lessons for the chemical sciences sub-strand in Science Understanding for Years 7-8 and Years 9-10. Students build their scientific vocabulary and understanding of key concepts. Work sheets involving practical activities also develop the ability to plan and safely conduct experiments and to record and analyse data. The CD-ROM contains all the pages that are featured in the book, as well as a file of selected illustrations that can be used for other work sheets. These files can be easily edited to suit the needs of students.

About the Achieve! Science SeriesThe Achieve! series of Science titles has been developed for teachers who require modified, curriculum-focused activities for secondary school students. It is aimed at students who, because of poor literacy skills, struggle to read and comprehend regular classroom materials. Students will experience success as they work alongside their classmates in the same subjects with material that is tailored for their literacy needs. Each book is divided into units that focus on a key topic and contain four to five photocopiable work sheets. The units could be taught as a lesson with students in groups of varying sizes. Alternatively, one or more activity sheets can be used as support material, or for individual homework, assessment or revision. Many books in the series include a CD-ROM that contain all the pages that are featured in the book, as well as a file of illustrations that can be used for other work sheets. These files can be easily edited to suit the needs of your students.
- Mature-look page layout and illustrations
