Doc Brown's Chemistry KS3 SCIENCE
REVISION LINKS TO ALL QUIZZES
My Key Stage 3 Science Homepage for Biology, Chemistry & Chemistry Revision Quiz Index
(they roughly correspond to US high school science grades 6-8)
I appreciate SAT levels have gone, but I hope these KS3 science Quizzes will still be of some use. Although I've already produced some combined KS3 science quizzes, I welcome suggestions from teachers so I may produce useful compilation KS3 science quizzes suitable for any school doing KS3 science and any KS3 science scheme of work now that the KS3 science levels and KS3 science SAT exams have gone. Copying of the KS3 science quizzes is NOT permitted.
Links to individual Biology, Chemistry and Physics Quizzes!
and below are links to combined KS3 science quizzes
These KS3 Science QUIZ COMPILATIONS are based on the latest KS3 Science criteria on which schemes of work.
ORGANISMS, BEHAVIOUR and HEALTH
a) Life processes are supported by the organisation of cells into tissues, organs and body systems
b) The human reproductive cycle includes adolescence, fertilisation and foetal development.
c) Conception, growth, development, behaviour and health can be affected by diet, drugs and disease. The study of diet, drugs and disease to include the importance of healthy eating complemented by regular exercise, and the effect of drugs such as alcohol, tobacco and cannabis on mental and physical health. It also includes the effects of bacteria and viruses, such as those associated with sexually transmitted infections.
d) All living things show variation, can be classified and are interdependent, interacting with each other and their environment. The study of variation to include inherited and environmental variation and variation through genetic engineering and selective breeding.
e) Behaviour is influenced by internal and external factors and can be investigated and measured. Behaviour: This includes human and animal behaviour (psychology and ethnology).
CHEMICAL and MATERIAL BEHAVIOUR
a) The particle model provides explanations for the different physical properties and behaviour of matter.
b) Elements consist of atoms that combine together in chemical reactions to form compounds. The study of elements to include the development and organisation of elements in the Periodic Table. The study of compounds to include the different properties of compounds due to the number and type of atoms and their arrangement.
c) Elements and compounds show characteristic chemical properties and patterns in their behaviour. The study of characteristic chemical properties and patterns can be exemplified by the reactions of metals and non-metals, and acids and bases.
ENERGY, ELECTRICITY and FORCES
a) Energy can be transferred usefully, stored, or dissipated, but cannot be created or destroyed. Energy to include the properties and behaviour of light and sound, renewable energy resources and emerging technologies such as fuel cells.
b) Forces are interactions between objects and can affect their shape and motion. Shape and motion to include pressure effects, linear motion and turning moments.
c) Electric current in circuits can produce a variety of effects. The study of circuits to includes current and voltage in series and parallel circuits. The variety of effects to include electrical devices are designed to make use of a variety of effects caused by electric currents, including heating, chemical changes and magnetic effects.
THE ENVIRONMENT, EARTH and UNIVERSE
a) Geological activity is caused by chemical and physical processes. The study of geological activity to include the rock cycle processes, rock formation and weathering.
b) Astronomy and space science provide insight into the nature and observed motions of the sun, moon, stars, planets and other celestial bodies
c) Human activity and natural processes can lead to changes in the environment.
The first three KS3 Science sub-index links below relate to smaller more individual topic based quizzes based on the original QCA KS3 Science schemes of work - programmes of study. The 5th is a shorter version of this KS3 science page.
