Thursday, 1/19/17- B Day

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- Turn to your table partners and practice explaining what happens to particles in the following changes of state: evaporation, condensation, freezing, melting
  2. Review of Changes of State for quiz- BBC, How Stuff Works, Mystery Mud
  3. Assessment- Changes of State Quiz

Wednesday, 1/18/17- A Day

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 open to page 49. Turn to your table partners and practice explaining what happens to particles in the following changes of state: evaporation, condensation, freezing,melting
  2. Application- Answer questions 4, 5, & 6 on the handout about melting and the comparison of state changes in other substances to state changes in water. Tape handout to page 48 as flip page.
  3. Review of Changes of State for quiz- BBC, How Stuff Works, Mystery Mud

Period 6

  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.

Homework: 

STUDY pages 38-49- Changes of State Quiz tomorrow 1/19

Wednesday, 1/4/17- B Day

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.

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 the States of Matter simulation papers. There are three of them- one on water, one on Neon, and one on phase changes. Compare your models of water and neon in each of the three states of matter- solid, liquid, and gas. How are they the same? How are they different?
  2. Modeling– Describe how matter changes when temperature increases and when it decreases. Be sure to explain what happens to the arrangement, attraction, and movement of particles.
