Doc Brown's Chemistry KS3 SCIENCE REVISION
My Key Stage 3 Science Homepage - Biology, Chemistry & Chemistry Revision Quiz Index
NEW QUIZ COMPILATIONS based on the latest KS3 Science criteria on which schemes of work and programmes of study are to be based - still under review I gather?
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.

Notes about the Quiz database of Questions
When doing the KS3 science multiple choice quizzes, if you get the answer correct, a YES comes up in the box by the choices A-D. If you get it wrong, a NO appears. However, if your first three answers are incorrect, on the 4th click, which is the answer, nothing appears! This I'm afraid is peculiar quirk, in the otherwise excellent free to use Hot Potato download software I use.
Covering UK Key Stage 3 Science Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 final KS3 Science , QCA criteria i.e. based on the QCA schemes of work - programmes of study for Y7, Y8 and Y9 (also popular with US students ~US K12 Science grades 6-8) * KS3 Science multiple Choice Quizzes, worksheets practice questions for pupils revising Key Stage 3 science quizzes revision help for secondary students * KS3 Science-BIOLOGY Quizzes only - covering Y7, Y8 & Y9 for Science revision KS3 Science-CHEMISTRY & Earth Science Quizzes, extra word-fill work sheets & crosswords + answers - covering Y7, Y8 & Y9 for Science revision KS3 Science-PHYSICS Quizzes only - covering Y7, Y8 & Y9 for Science Revision KS3 SCIENCE 'mixed' or integrated Science Quizzes - covering Y7,Y8,Y9 Science revision 10 Questions are selected at random from a large database. I do not do differentiated level quizzes. Out of the 10 Q's per quiz, on average three are easy, three a bit harder and three quite hard, pot luck on the 10th question! From a teachers point of view, each database is based on the QCA work schemes for KS3 Science from 7A to 9H to cover all the KS3 key stage three programmes of study. There are various combinations of these question databases, all of which are accessed via the four sub-index links above. Individual schools will not always follow this scheme exactly but its the best way I can organise the quizzes to cover most KS3 science courses.
