Assignment brief Unit number and title Unit 1 ChemistryandOur Earth Qualification Level 2 BTEC FirstCertificate inAppliedScience Start date Deadline date Assessor Assignment title Assignment 1 Elements, Mixtures and Compounds The purpose of this assignment is to: Enable you to identify different types of chemical substances from school, home and your surroundings: elements and their symbols; compounds; mixtures Scenario You are the education officer for a large chemical company which has just opened, you have been asked to prepare posters, explaining the difference between elements mixtures and compounds for a ‘meet the neighbours’ open day display. Task 1 Fill in the sheet, your assessor will give you, to identify which substances are elements, which are mixtures and which are compounds. This provides evidence for P1 Task 2 Prepare a poster using drawings to describe the differences between elements, mixtures and compounds. This provides evidence for M1 Task 3 Add examples to your poster in order to explain the differences between elements, mixtures and compounds. For example, How could you show whether air is a mixture or a compound, and how could you show that iron sulphide is a compound and not just a mixture of iron and sulphur This provides evidence for D1 Sources of information Textbooks Beech J, Milward CandSochacki F – BTECLevel 2 First Applied Science ActiveTeach CD ROM (Pearson, 2010) ISBN 9781846906114 Brain C, Goodfellow D, Hocking S, LlewellynR, Kitchin C, Mathews J, Musa 1 andRhodes P – BTECLevel 2 First Applied Science Student Book (Pearson, 2010) ISBN 9781846906091 Cogill A, Gale P, Hocking S, LlewellynR, Musa I, Rhodes P, Saunders N andWinterbottomM – BTECLevel 2 First Applied Science Teaching Planning Pack (Pearson, 2010) ISBN 9781846906107 Arnold B (editor) – GCSE Science for Edexcel:Science Student Book (Collins Educational, 2006) ISBN 9780007214488 Bell C, Brodie D, Dawson B andTiernanA – GCSE Applied Science for Edexcel: Teacher Pack (Folens, 2006) ISBN 9781843039747 ConoleyC– Edexcel GCSE Chemistry (Hodder Arnold, 2009) ISBN9780340914793 Hubbard L – The Essential Chemical Industry (Chemical IndustryEducationCentre, 1999) ISBN 9781853425776 Hutchings K – Classic ChemistryExperiments (The Royal Societyof Chemistry, 2000) ISBN 9780854049196 NuffieldCurriculum Centre – TwentyFirst Century Science:GCSE ChemistryTextbook (OUP, 2006) ISBN 9780199150502 Ryan L – New Chemistryfor You (NelsonThornes, 2006) ISBN 9780748783236 Safeguards Committee – Safeguards in the School Laboratory (Associationfor Science Education, 2006) ISBN 9780863574085
