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- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Melting p.48” (Left Side) and “Melting p.49” (Right Side). Open to page 48 and head it properly with “Melting-Application-1/17/17 and open to page 49 and head it properly with “Melting-Demonstration-1/17/17.”
  2. Model– Observe the animations of Ice structure Ice at Different Angles. Create a model of water molecules in solid ice and liquid water on p.46. Freezing Point of Gas- Liquid Nitrogen Demonstration Let’s Freeze Liquid Nitrogen
  3. Demonstration– What happens to the speed of molecules in ice when it is heated? Where does the energy come from to melt the ice? Describe your observations of the ice melting on different surfaces on page 49. Define melting. Add key term to index at back of notebook.

Monday, 2/22/16- A Day

Learning Objectives:

  • To measure the volume and mass of water and calculate its density.
  • To explain that since any volume of water always has the same density, density is a characteristic property of water.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your Density of Water Lab and get out your science notebook and open to page 65; Trim & tape the Density of Water Activity procedure as a flip page to page 65.
  2. Observation Investigation– Do different amounts of water have the same density?Continue conducting the investigation & recording the data. Answer questions 2-7. Trim & tape data table & questions 2-7 as flip page to page 65.
  3. Application– Answer “Explain It With Atoms & Molecules” Question 8 & “Take It Further” Question 9

Homework:

  • Periods 2,4, & 7- Complete Lab Questions 2-7
  • Periods 3 & 6- Questions 8 & 9
