Zinc and You.
This unit is one of a group of units written to fit the Certificate of Sixth Year Studies (CSYS) chemistry course, but it could also be used in most Sixth Form courses. It includes: (1) background notes for teachers including answers and a discussion guide; (2) a student copy of objectives and discussion suggestions; (3) background information for students, a set of problems, and data sheets (reference diagram and charts); and (4) summary sheets describing uses of zinc and processes of zinc extraction. The unit was developed for use in an interactive way to give students experience in making decisions based on knowledge of chemistry and other disciplines so that they may understand that chemical industry decisions are often of necessity multi-disciplinary.
