STM.HS.EK9

Accurate record-keeping, openness, and replication are essential for maintaining credibility with other scientists and society.

STM.HS.SC13

Create and/or interpret graphs and equations to depict and analyze patterns of change.

STM.HS.SC15

Generate investigable questions and conduct experiments or non-experimental research to address them, using eidetic to defend conclusions.

MF.HS.EK2

The usefulness of a model can be tested by comparing its predictions to actual observations in the real world.  But a close match does not necessarily mean that the model is the only “true” model or the only one that would work.

MF.HS.SC4

Create and analyze graphs, ensuring that they do not misrepresent results by using inappropriate scales or by failing to specify the axes clearly.

ESS.HS.EK6

Mathematical models and computer simulations are used in studying evidence form many sources to form a scientific account of the universe.

ESS.HS.EK7

Scientists rely on increasingly sophisticated methods of measurements in order to investigate a variety of phenomena that were previously immeasurable.

 

I can:

  1. Explain how scientists explore the world.
  2. Explain how the many types of science are organized.
  3. Define scientific theories and explain how are they different from scientific laws.
  4. Think and act like a scientist.
  5. Describe how scientists use the metric system to measure things.
  6. Describe why organizing data is an important science skill.
  7. Place numbers in scientific notation.

Compare and contrast accuracy and precision.

Introduction to Science

(Chapter 1)

 

4 Weeks

1.1.1

Students will classify or make generalizations about elements from data of observed patterns in atomic structure and/or position on the periodic table.

The periodic table is a consequence of the repeating pattern of outermost electrons.

1.1.2

Students will understand that the atom’s nucleus is composed of protons and neutrons that are much more massive than electrons. When an element has atoms that differ in the number of neutrons, these atoms are called different isotopes of the element.

1.1.4

Students will understand that in conducting materials, electrons flow easily; whereas, in insulating materials, they can hardly flow at all. Semiconducting materials have intermediate behavior. At low temperatures, some materials become superconductors and offer no resistance to the flow of electrons.

1.2.3

Students will understand that the electric force is a universal force that exists between any two charged objects. Opposite charges attract while like charges repel.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SC-HS-1.1.4

Students will understand that in conducting materials, electrons flow easily; whereas, in insulating materials, they can hardly flow at all. Semiconducting materials have intermediate behavior. At low temperatures, some materials become superconductors and offer no resistance to the flow of electrons.

SC-HS-1.1.5

Students will explain the role of intermolecular or intramolecular interactions on the physical properties (solubility, density, polarity, conductivity, boiling/melting points) of compounds.

The physical properties of compounds reflect the nature of the interactions among molecules. These interactions are determined by the structure of the molecule including the constituent atoms.

SC-HS-1.1.7

·   construct diagrams to illustrate ionic or covalent bonding;

·   predict compound formation and bond type as either ionic or covalent (polar, nonpolar) and represent the products formed with simple chemical formulas.

Bonds between atoms are created when outer electrons are paired by being transferred (ionic) or shared (covalent). A compound is formed when two or more kinds of atoms bind together chemically.

I can:

  1. Explain what holds a compound together.
  2. Show the structures of chemical compounds.
  3. Describe what determines the properties of a compound.
  4. Explain why atoms form bonds.
  5. Describe ionic and covalent bonds.
  6. Explain metallic properties.
  7. Compare polyatomic ions to other ions.
  8. Explain how to name ionic compounds.
  9. Use prefixes to name covalent molecules.
  10. Explain what a compound’s empirical formula indicates.
  11. Define organic compound.
  12. Define polymer.
  13. Describe which organic compounds are essential to life.
