Nuffield Science Calculations
This Nuffield Foundation publication was prepared to help students master the calculations involved in GCSE Science courses. The book is divided up into a series individual topics. Each topic is presented in three parts.
• A summary of the ideas students need to know, including any important formulas.
• Worked examples, to show students how to tackle problems in a step-by-step way.
• Questions to solve. The first questions in each topic are straightforward, but they become gradually more difficult.
• Physics Calculations
• Chemistry Calculations
How much matter?
How much gas?
How much electrolysis?
How much energy?
• Biology Calculations
Inheritance and selection
• Reference Section
Proton numbers and approximate relative atomic masses

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
