Chemical Reactions Review

We see how students learned to recognize the signs of chemical change in this recap of Unit 5, "Chemical Reactions." The unit also covered the Law of the Conservation of Matter, and students balanced chemical equations and learned to draw models representing those equations.

Support Materials

Georgia Standards of Excellence

SC1Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the use of the modern atomic theory and periodic law to explain the characteristics of atoms and elements.

SC1.eConstruct an explanation of light emission and the movement of electrons to identify elements.

SC1.fUse the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms (including atomic radii, ionization energy, and electronegativity of various elements).

SPS3Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to support the Law of Conservation of Matter.

SPS3.aPlan and carry out investigations to generate evidence supporting the claim that mass is conserved during a chemical reaction. (Clarification statement: Limited to synthesis, decomposition, simple replacement, and double replacement reactions.)

SPS3.bDevelop and use a model of a chemical equation to illustrate how the total number of atoms is conserved during a chemical reaction. (Clarification statement: Limited to chemical equations that include binary ionic and covalent compounds and will not include equations containing polyatomic ions.)

S8P1Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the structure and properties of matter.

S8P1.fConstruct an explanation based on evidence to describe conservation of matter and mass in a chemical reaction including the resulting differences between products and reactants. (Clarification statement: Evidence could include models with balanced chemical equations.)
