Hello,
I’m a year 12 student who’s studying AQA chemistry and while I was revising mass spectrometry in unit 3: organic analysis using my CGP textbook I noticed that my teacher had taught fragmentation in mass spectrometry, which I can’t find any mention of in the specification or textbook. She’s done this before with High and Low Density Polymers during the addition polymers topic also in section 3. I’d rather not ask her about this as she told me the “textbook isn’t comprehensive” when I confronted her about the addition polymers, this was before I thought to check the specification (which does not mention it either). She’s also teaching NMR spectrometry, which is year 13, before we have finished year 12 content and have not done year 12 mocks yet.
Any advice on what I should do in this situation? Thank you in advance for any replies

maybe she has her reasons. Could you have a quite word with one of the other chemistry teachers, but make it more a polite enquiry.
