  • Physical Science
    • Structure and properties of matter
      • Bonds between atoms are created when electrons are paired up by being transferred or shared. (9-12)
      • Atoms may be bonded together into molecules or crystalline solids. (9-12)
      • A compound is formed when two or more kinds of atoms bind together chemically. (9-12)
      • The physical properties of compounds reflect the nature of the interactions among its molecules. (9-12)
      • The interactions among molecules are determined by the structure of the molecule, including the constituent atoms and the distances and angles between them. (9-12)
  • Science as Inquiry
    • Abilities necessary to do scientific inquiry
      • Develop descriptions, explanations, predictions, and models using evidence.
      • Think critically and logically to make the relationships between evidence and explanations.
      • Recognize and analyze alternative explanations and predictions.
      • Communicate scientific procedures and explanations.
      • Use mathematics in all aspects of scientific inquiry.
  • Teaching Standards
    • Teachers of science plan an inquiry-based science program for their students.
      • Select science content and adapt and design curricula to meet the interests, knowledge, understanding, abilities, and experiences of students.
    • Teachers of science guide and facilitate learning. In doing this, teachers
      • Encourage and model the skills of scientific inquiry, as well as the curiosity, openness to new ideas and data, and skepticism that characterize science.

User Reviews

A great set of labs
  Ruth Hutson (Westmoreland, KS) on October 28, 2013
  This is a great set of resources that explore polarity and the model that explains how substances dissolve. Simple labs are provided that use chemicals that are easy to obtain.
