This teacher resource pack follows on from the earlier Philip Allan Updates publication Organic Chemistry 2 (ISBN: 978-0-86003-223-6). It contains new material that gives teachers alternative activities to help in their teaching of A2 chemistry. The pack has been developed for the new specifications for teaching from autumn 2008 and the suggested teaching order is tailored to the new specifications.
Maurice Carmody is head of chemistry at Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys, Canterbury.
