Chemistry: A Study of Matter is a series teaching high school chemistry. The series provides instructional content delivered through thirty-minute episodes and integrated classroom materials. Episodes provide content while giving cues for the classroom teacher to pause the program and interact with students, engaging them in discussions, problem-solving, and laboratory activities. Classroom materials, including note-taking guides to accompany the episodes, worksheets, classroom activities, quizzes, and tests are available in electronic format. For security reasons, only student materials are provided on this site. teachers resources are free for Georgia educators. If you are a Georgia educator, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request the Physics Fundamentals teacher resources. You may be asked to verify your Georgia educator status. If you are an out-of-state educator and would like to purchase the Physics Fundamentals teacher resources, please go to https://sellfy.com/p/SVTQ/.
Chemistry is the study of matter, its composition and the changes it undergoes. During this semester, you will be introduced to the scientific method used to study matter and will be given the mathematical tools you will need for the remainder of the course. You will learn how matter is classified according to its properties and composition. You will study the atom and trace the development of the atomic theory and the periodic table of elements. In the unit on bonding, you will learn how elements form compounds, and in the final unit, you will learn to name and write formulas for compounds and to write equations representing chemical reactions.
This semester begins with the introduction of the mole. This important concept will be used during the remainder of the year as the basis for many calculations involving chemical reactions, solutions, and gases. In the units on thermochemistry and chemical kinetics, you will learn how energy is absorbed and given off during chemical reactions and how energy, and factors affect the rates of reactions. The study of reaction rates will lead you into the study of chemical equilibrium. In this semester, you will also study electrochemistry, from batteries to electroplating. And you will learn about acids, bases and salts. Unit 15 is a brief study of the atomic nucleus, which your teacher may introduce at any time during the year.
Physics Fundamentals is a series teaching high school physics.
Everyone talks about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it. Well, Fast Forward does! We interview multiple on-air and off-air Weather Channel employees, showing a variety of opportunities: meteorologists, radio personalities, designers, and IT personnel. This episode also includes a string of weather-related Teachable Moments, such as explanations about dew point and different types of clouds, what actually causes weather, why the "feels like" temperature is different from the actual temperature, the basics of lightning, and more.
We pay a visit to the CSX REDI Center in midtown Atlanta, where we talk with the fine folks of CSX about their 3,000 employees scattered around the state. REDI is the acronym for Railroad Education and Development Institute. That’s where most CSX employees come to learn about what it takes to work on the railroad, which also makes it a great place for us to learn more about CSX jobs.
