Essential Learnings

 

Semester 1 

  • Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction. (Energy and Matter) 
  • Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms. 
  • Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties. (Patterns) 
  • Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy. (Energy and Matter) 

 

 

Semester 2 

  • Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction. (Energy and Matter) 
  • Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles. (Patterns) 
  • Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy. (Energy and Matter)
