The Halogens. Independent Learning Project for Advanced Chemistry (ILPAC). Unit I2.
Inner London Education Authority (England).
This unit is one of 10 first year units produced by the Independent Learning Project for Advanced Chemistry (ILPAC). The unit, which consists of two levels, focuses on the elements and compounds of Group IV (halogens) of the periodic table. Level one deals with the physical and chemical properties of the individual elements. Level two considers the halogen compounds. Similarities and trends in selected properties are stressed and industrial applications are detailed. In addition, care is taken to ensure that students become proficient in the techniques of balancing redox equations. Nine experiments, exercises (with answers), and pre- and post-tests are included. Students completing this ILPAC unit 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.
