SPS2. Students will explore the nature of matter, its classifications, and its system for naming types of matter.
a. Calculate density when given a means to determine a substance’s mass and volume.
SPS5. Students will compare and contrast the phases of matter as they relate to atomic and molecular motion.
a. Compare and contrast the atomic/molecular motion of solids, liquids, gases and plasmas.
b. Relate temperature, pressure, and volume of gases to the behavior of gases.
SPS6. Students will investigate the properties of solutions.
a. Describe solutions in terms of …solute / solvent, conductivity, concentration
b. Observe factors affecting the rate a solute dissolves in a specific solvent.
c. Demonstrate that solubility is related to temperature by constructing a solubility curve.
