The focus of this unit is chemical bonds, both intermolecular and intramolecular. Students also look at the bond spectrum and learn about electrostatic and electronegative forces.
This segment introduces the concept of chemical bonding and explores chemical changes using the ingredients found in taco sauce as a model.
In this segment, the students learn about chemical bonds, Lewis dot diagrams, and ionic bonds.
Intramolecular bonds are discussed in this segment, and the students create their own bonds using a software simulator.
The students discuss polar and nonpolar bonds in this segment, followed by an explanation of single, double, and triple bonds.
Intermolecular forces are the focus of this segment, and the students learn why hydrogen bonding makes ice float.
The students learn about melting point using sugar and salt. Special guest Dr. Ludovice discusses molecular modeling.
Students explore the chemical and physical properties of matter and discover how scientific ideas are connected to each other rather than existing in isolation.
The focus of this unit is to help students understand the condition in which all competing influences counteract each other, resulting in a stable, balanced, or unchanging system.
