The Task

This task was set as summer homework for students beginning the AS Chemistry course the following September (2011). Students had to write a 1,000 word essay on a Chemistry topic already encountered at GCSE. The aim was for students to stretch their understanding of the topic through independent research. A good essay examines the economic and social aspects of the chosen topic as well as the environmental issues.
