Topic 1 Stoichiometric relationships
1.1 States of matter, changes of state and state symbols

This video covers states of matter, changes of state and state symbols.
Applications and skills: Application of the state symbols (s), (l), (g) and (aq) in equations. 
1.1 Elements, compounds, mixtures

Understandings:
Atoms of different elements combine in fixed ratios to form compounds, which have different properties from their component elements. Mixtures contain more than one element and/or compound that are not chemically bonded together and so retain their individual properties. Mixtures are either homogeneous or heterogeneous. Applications and skills: Explanation of observable changes in physical properties and temperature during changes of state. 
1.1 Physical and chemical changes

This video covers the differences between physical and chemical changes.

1.1 Balancing chemical equations

Applications and skills:
Deduction of chemical equations when reactants and products are specified. Application of the state symbols (s), (l), (g) and (aq) in equations. Guidance: Balancing of equations should include a variety of types of reactions. 
1.2 Relative atomic mass and molecular mass

Understandings:
Masses of atoms are compared on a scale relative to 12C and are expressed as relative atomic mass (Ar) and relative formula/molecular mass (Mr). 
1.1 Atom economy

Utilization:
Atom economy  the atom economy of chemical reaction is a measure of the amount of starting materials that become useful products. Please note that atom economy is only required for students who are studying option A. 
1.2 The mole concept
