IB syllabus for first examinations 2016

Chemical equations

1.3.1: Balance chemical equations when all reactants and products are given. Distinguish between coefficients and subscripts.


1.3.2: Identify the mole ratios of any two species in a balanced chemical equation. Use balanced chemical equations to obtain information about the amounts of reactants and products.


1.3.3 Apply the state symbols (s), (l), (g) and (aq). Encourage the use of state symbols in chemical equations.

The best way to learn stoichiometry is by practising the questions and then practising them some more! The New Colourful Solutions ebooks do just that - they take the hard work out of learning.

You get all of the topic in easy bite-size chunks, which you can read and digest, using the many examples and animations as a guide.

Then you can try out the example questions. Don't know the answer? No problem! With one click of the mouse a complete explanation appears. You can open or close the answers to test yourself.. and, finally, you can trest yourself with the timed quizzes.

You set the number of questions, you set the time allowed. You become a crack at chemistry!
