Inchem5youcantreallylearnthecalculations,it'smoreaboutdeductingwhattodowiththeinformationyouhaveandyoucan'tlearnthat. It was written to cover the calculations in UK AS and A level chemistry syllabuses (roughly for ages 16 - 18 years), but chemistry calculations are just the same wherever in the world you are working. I was born, brought up and went to school in Falmouth, went to Cambridge followed by teacher training, and then taught chemistry at several schools before ending up in Truro in 1974.

is joint author (with Steve Owen and Rachel Yu) of Edexcel International GCSE (9-1) Chemistry published in 2017. I'm simply not interested in the "learn this parrot-fashion and you will pass" approach - it is much more of a slog than taking a bit of time to understand what is going on. Calculations in AS and A Level Chemistry guides your students through the various types of mathematical calculations they will encounter during their AS and A Level course, using clear and simple language. Chapters are clearly laid out, with plenty of worked examples, and there are helpful notes throughout. There is nothing remotely interesting in any of this, and it feels a little like writing my own obituary.Each type of calculation is introduced in a very gentle way, making no great assumptions about your chemistry knowledge or maths ability. Transferable skills, needed for progression into higher education and employment, are signposted allowing students to understand, and engage with, the skills they’re gaining. The last year of 11+ (which uniquely included some 10+ students as well that year – my son, Paul was one) generated one of the best years ever. When that cohort reached their A-Level year, I remember sitting around a bench in the lab with (I think) 13 of them doing S-Level – that was completely unprecedented.

Suitable for use with all AS and A Level specifications, it helps students to understand mathematical concepts specific to AS and A Level Chemistry. Obviously, that helped them, but it also had an enormous influence on my future, because it gave me real insight as to where their difficulties lay, and to sense immediately when students were finding my approach unclear. Thank you Jim: and if you ever fancy popping in for a coffee with Pete and myself, you would be most warmly welcomed, and our students of course would be completely star struck! Beware that this book is no longer appropriate for Edexcel International GCSE examinations from 2011 onwards, and has been out of print for some time. Calculations in AS and A Level Chemistry fills a gap in the market and provides excellent coverage of the calculations needed at A Level.

Occasionally a senior member of staff would show parents and potential students around the school, and they would be ushered into the lab with me in my pink lab coat, music playing, and everyone absorbed in the music and what they were doing. During my time at the school, Wednesday afternoon was established as a time for games and activities.
