Master The Fundamentals Of Chemistry (Part 3 of 4)
What you'll learn
- In this course students will learn exactly what they need to know for their chemistry exams so that they can learn as efficiently as possible.
- Understand that metals can be placed in a reactivity series based on their reactivity with water and/or dilute acids
- Understand how metals can be placed in order of reactivity based on the displacement reactions with metal oxides and aqueoues solutions of salts
- Know the order of reactivity for common metals
- Know the conditions under which iron rusts
- Understand how the rusting of iron can be prevented
- Describe the use of litmus, methyl orange and phenolphthalein to distinguish between acids, bases and neutral solutions
- Understand how the use of the pH scale identifies a substance as a strong/weak acid/base
- Describe the use of universal indicator to identify the pH of a solution
- Know that acids produce H+ ions in solution whereas bases produce OH- ions
- Know that bases can neutralise acids
- Know how to carry out an acid/base titration
- Know the solubility rules for common salts
- Understand acid base reactions in terms of proton transfer
- Understand that an acid is a proton donor and a base is a proton acceptor
- Describe the reactions of metals, metal oxides, and metal carbonantes with common dilute acids
- Know that metal oxides, ammonia and metal hydroxides act as bases in solution and that alkalis are soluble bases
- Describe an experiment to prepare a sample of a soluble salt, starting with a metal oxide or metal carbonate
- Describe how to produce a sample of a soluble salt using titration
- Describe how to produce a sample of an insoluble salt using a precipitation reaction
- Describe the chemical tests for the identification of common gases
- Describe how to carry out a flame test
- Recall the flame colours of common ions
- Describe the cation tests for ammonium, and metal ions using NaOH
- Describe the anion tests for halides, carbonate, and sulphate
- Know that chemical reaction that release heat are exothermic, and the opposite are endothermic
- Describe simple calorimetry experiments such as combustion, neutralisation, displacement, dissolving
- Calculate the heat evolved in a reaction using Q=mc(delta)T
- Calculate the molar heat evolved in a reaction
- Draw and explain enthalpy profiles for endothermic and exothermic reactions
- Know that bond breaking is endothermic and bond making is exothermic
- Use bond enthalpies to calculate the enthalpy change for a reaction
ATTENTION PARENTS: Does your student need help learning IGCSE and GCSE Chemistry (or similar courses) from home? This course will give them the skills they need to feel confident for their exams. Purchase this course to help your student prepare for their exams by helping them to understand chemistry, rather than focusing on trying to memorise seemingly unrelated facts!
Full syllabus coverage details are available in a downloadable file for iGCSE Cambridge/Edexcel/AQA, GCSE Edexcel/AQA, and O level Cambridge.
This course covers all of the material studied in iGCSE Chemistry and GCSE Chemistry courses in the topics of Acids, bases and Salts, Reactions of Metals, Identification of Substances, and Energetics. These are normally the topics covered in (i)GCSE courses by schools in years 10+11 (Grade 9/10, ages 14/15/16). The material is also relevant for most GCSE courses. It is designed for students who are currently in years 10/11 (Grade 9/10, ages 14-16) and revising the material covered in their school lessons. It would also be useful for those students entering A level, or IBDP courses in chemistry who require a firm grounding before embarking on these more advanced qualifications. The material covered in this topic is also covered in most American and Canadian syllabuses in grade 10 chemistry/science (ages 15/16).
As soon as students sign up for this IGCSE Chemistry and GCSE Chemistry masterclass they will receive access to:
NEW and updated IGCSE chem & GCSE chem video lessons for each section of the course.
FREE digital IGCSE chem & GCSE worksheets to support learning
FULL EXAM QUESTION WALKTHROUGHS of past exam papers to help you learn the best exam writing strategies.
FREE topic-specific IGCSE chemistry past exam paper questions and mark schemes.
This IGCSE chemistry (O Level) masterclass is offered by IGCSEprep on Udemy. This masterclass covers all the content needed to write the IGCSE chemistry exams offered by Pearson Edexcel (double or triple) or Cambridge CIE (core or extended) or other exam boards like Oxford AQA.
Who this course is for:
- iGCSE and GCSE students studying double (core) or triple (extended) award chemistry or courses for the similar age range
The number one objective of iGCSEprep is to give students the academic boost they need to succeed.

I am a chemistry teacher with over 15 years of experience in British and international schools. I have taught in the UK, Portugal and Canada covering GCSE, iGCSE and IB curricula. In my teaching I emphasise that the most common difficulty students have with chemistry is the lack of access to clear explanations which enable them to understand the subject. Students need a full grasp of the key concepts in chemistry in order to progress and make sense of the courses they study. My lessons are given with these points in mind and my aim is to have all students feel confident in their understanding, rather than rely on memorisation in order to pass an examination. I have a strong record of achieving top grades with my students in both (i)GCSE and IBDP. 95% of my most recent set of (i)GCSE students received one of the top two grades, of which 68% were the highest grade. I have a first class honours degree in Chemistry from the University of Hull (UK).
