Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “States of Matter Basics p.40” (Left Side) and “States of Matter Basics p.41” (Right Side). Open to pages 40 and 41 and head them BOTH properly with “States of Matter Basics-Simulation-1/4/17.” Get out the States of Matter simulation papers. There are three of them- one on water, one on Neon, and one on phase changes.
  2. SimulationStates of Matter Basics PhET simulation- Review water particles as liquid, solid, & gas. Compare/contrast to Neon particles as liquid, solid, & gas. Trim and tape “Modifying Your Model (Computer Simulation) handout to page 41 in notebook. Answer the following questions on p.40 (Write-Pair-Share): Describe what happens to the particles of a solid when temperature increases. What effect does an increase in temperature have on the state of the solid? Predict what happens to the particles and state of a gas when temperature decreases.
