This has been an unforgetable year for many reasons, but even through a world wide pandemic forced most of the world to be shutdown the education of our future leaders had to continue. Scholars from our entire nation had to adapt quickly and transition into distance learning in order to continue growing intellectually.  

Thank you Scholars for rising to the challenge and working with all of us to continue providing educational instruction eventhough you were not in a typical classroom. Learning and academic growth happens everywhere not just in a classroom. 

Thank you all once again for your hard work and dedication……..

elements

Week 8: Atoms & Elements Review ( May 11th – 15th) 

Powerpoint: Atoms & Elements 

Atoms & Elements Unit Outline:

Essential question: How are atoms and elements related?

  1. What are atoms?
    1. Atoms are the basic building blocks of matter.
  2. What are the parts of the atom?
    1. Atoms are made up of 3 subatomic particles:
      1. Electrons: Negatively charged subatomic particles that orbit around the nucleus of the atom in the electron cloud.
      2. Protons: Positively charge subatomic particle found in the nucleus of the atom.
      3. Neutrons: Neutral (no charge) subatomic particle found in the nucleus of the atom.
    2. Neutrons and Protons both make up the atomic mass of an atom .
      1. Example Li3 – Lithium would have 3 protons and 3 neutrons so its atomic mass would be 6.
  3. What is an element?
    1. An element is a pure substance made up of only 1 type of atom. Example: O- Which is 3 oxygen atoms combined to make a molecule of oxygen.
  4. How are elements described? There are over 110 known elements that are organized in the periodic table of the elements.
    1. Elements are described by their atomic number which represents the number of protons of the element. Number above the chemical symbol in the periodic table.
      1. Example: He2 – 2 protons, Li3 – 3 protons, O8 – 8 protons, Si14 - 14 protons.
    2. Elements are described by their chemical symbol. Abbreviation of their name on the periodic table.
      1. Example: He – Helium, Fe – Iron, Ne – Neon, Fl – Fluorine, Na – Sodium, O – Oxygen, C – Carbon, & H – Hydogen.
      2. (Chemical symbols always begin with capital letter and usually contain 1 or 2 letters)
  5. Elements are divided into 3 main classes based on their properties.
    1. Metals: Most elements are metals; many are malleable, have luster, ductile, and good conductors of electricity and thermlal energy.
    2. Nonmetals: Many nonmetals are gases at room temperature. Solid nonmetals are typically dull, brittle, not malleable, and poor conductors of energy.
    3. Metalloids: Metalloids exhibit properties of both metals and nonmetals. Most metalloids are solid and have a semi metallic luster. Metalloids are less malleable than metals but not as brittle as nonmetals; metalloids are also referred to as semi conductors.

 

 
 
 
 


 


Changes

Week 7: Changes of Matter Review ( May 4th – 8th) 

Powerpoint: Physical and Chemical Changes of Matter

Physical & Chemical Changes of Matter Unit Outline:

Essential question: What are physical and chemical changes of matter?

  1. What are physical changes of matter? (Changes in appearance)
    1. ​Changes that can be seen 
    2. Changes that do not change the chemical identity of the substance
      1. ​Examples:
      • ​Change is state of matter (solid,liquid,gas)
      • Change in texture
      • Change in appearance
  2.  What are chemical changes of matter? (Changes from the inside/ different identity)
    1. One or more substances changing into an entirely new substance
    2. Changes to the chemical makeup of the substance and its properties
      • ​Signs to identify a chemical change:
      1. ​Production of a gas
      2. Production of light or sound
      3. Formation of a precipitate
      4. Production of odor
      5. Change in color
      6. Change in temperature/energy
  3. What happens to energy and mass during physical and chemical changes?​
    • ​​Law of Conservation of Mass and Energy.
    • States that mass and energy cannot be created or destroyed in ordinary ohysical and chemical changes of matter.
    • Mass and energy are conserved when substances undergo physical and chemical changes; mass and energy simply change into other forms but is never created or destroyed.

Hope all you Scholars are doing well and staying safe. Remember wash your hands with soap and water as often as you can and when you can’t then you can use germ-x. Also be aware of how many times you touch your face, remeber the movie Contagion. Eventhough we won’t be attanding school for a while it doesn’t mean that you will stop feeding your intellect. Try your best to read, read anything as long as you are reading as well as completing the assingment from your teachers and myself. Here on this page I will be adding resources that will help all of you feed your intellect and exercise your brain.

Remember proper hygeine will help everyone; stay healthy and be safe. Here is a video on the current viral pandemic, knowledge is power.
