My Masterclass breaks down school syllabus for students to better understand new concepts through our Holiday Programme – Modular Classes.

# Modular Classes

## Atomic Structure

There are organelles inside cells and there are subatomic particles inside the atoms. Learn how the subatomic particles affect the properties of the elements and how we use them as materials in our daily lives.

**Suitable for S1 or S2 students**

## Acid & Bases

Ever wondered why fruits taste sour or washing agents are soapy? Acids and alkalis are present in our daily lives. Learn their properties, where are they found and their chemical reactions.

**Suitable for S2 students**

## Chemical Bonding

Pre-requisite: Atomic Structure

Subatomic particles affect the types of bonding elements formed. Learn how elements form compounds, what type of bonds formed and how to draw their structures. Gain a deeper insight into how these structures affect their chemical properties.

**Suitable for S2 students**

## Qualitative Analysis

Qualitative Analysis is needed in all components of the O Level Examinations – Practical, MCQ & written paper. Most students find that there is a lot of memory work in qualitative analysis, while others find it difficult to comprehend.

We will break down the concepts and questions into bite-size information. This not only ensures better understanding, but students will also be able to absorb the knowledge easier.

**Suitable for S3 students**

## Chemical Reactions & Equations (Class 1)

Pre-requisite: Atomic Structure

Learn the different common chemical reactions in our lives and how equations are written to represent the various reactions. Learning how to identify and formulate equations is important as students will be expected to do so throughout the secondary school syllabus.

Chemical Reactions & Equations overlaps with many topics in upper secondary, such as Mole Concept, Metals, Acid Bases Salts, Qualitative Analysis, Redox, Electrolysis and Organic Chemistry.

In *Chemical Reactions & Equations (1)*, we will be learning the following reactions:

- Combustion, Oxidation
- Decomposition, Electrolysis
- Photosynthesis
- Single & Double displacement

**Suitable for S2 students**

## Chemical Reactions & Equations (Class 2)

Pre-requisite: *Chemical Reactions & Equations (1)*

Learn the different common chemical reactions in our lives and how equations are written to represent the various reactions. Learning how to identify and formulate equations is important as students will be expected to do so throughout the secondary school syllabus.

Chemical Reactions & Equations overlaps with many topics in upper secondary, such as Mole Concept, Metals, Acid Bases Salts, Qualitative Analysis, Redox, Electrolysis and Organic Chemistry.

In *Chemical Reactions & Equations (2)*, we will be learning the following techniques:

- Balance equations with poly-atomic ions
- Acid alkali reactions
- Testing for gases produced for positive reactions

**Suitable for S2 Students**

## Mole Concept

Pre-requisite: Chemical Reactions & Equations

Chemical calculations and Mole Concept is an evergreen topic, it takes up 10 to 15% of the O level exams. Most students have problem understanding mole concept questions and tend to memorize formulas instead of understanding how are the formulas derived.

At My Masterclass we will focus on explaining how the formulas are derived and students can easily check and ensure that their work is correct, instead of jumbling up between formulas, weather is it to multiply or to divide.

During Mole Concept (1), we will go through the basics of Mole Concept & Calculations. In Mole Concept (2) we will be going through challenging calculation problems, breaking down and analysing the questions so that students can tackle the wide range of Mole Concept questions.

**Suitable for S3 students**

## Salts Solubility & Preparation

This is one of the hardest topics in Chemistry. Students often cannot understand how to prepare the various salts, thus unable to work with it. The MCQ components to this topic are often very tricky with similar options but only 1 is the accurate answer. Join the modular class to get a head start on the topic.
