Independent Learning Project for Advanced Chemistry (ILPAC). Teachers' and Technicians' Notes for First Year Units.
Inner London Education Authority (England).
The Independent Learning Project for Advanced Chemistry (ILPAC) has produced units of study for students in A-level chemistry. Students completing ILPAC units assume a greater responsibility for their own learning and can work, to some extent, at their own pace. By providing guidance, and detailed solutions to exercises in the units, supported by the optional use of video-cassettes, the project allows students to study A-level chemistry with less teacher contact time than a conventional course demands. These teachers' and technicians' notes are for the 10 first year units. These units focus on: (1) the mole; (2) atomic structure; (3) chemical energetics; (4) chemical bonding and structure; (5) the gaseous state; (6) principles of equilibrium; (7) equilibrium (acids and bases); (8) hydrocarbons; (9) the s-block elements; and (10) the halogens. The notes include answers to pre- and post-tests, list of materials needed for experiments, procedures for preparing solutions, comments about experiments and computer programs used by students, safety considerations, and instructional strategies.
