Can you describe what an alkene is? After this class, students will be able to describe alkenes as unsaturated hydrocarbons and be able to name the first 5 alkenes with their molecular and structural formulae. Students will also have a chance to apply their knowledge in a set of past paper GCSE questions. This class is a great revision tool for those in Years 9 - 11 who are preparing for exams!
