Week Of




Matter & Energy

1. Elements and their combinations account for all the varied types of matter in the world.
As a basis for understanding this concept, students know:
a. during chemical reactions, the atoms in the reactants rearrange to form products with different properties.
b. all matter is made of atoms, which may combine to form molecules.
c. metals have properties in common, such as electrical and thermal conductivity. Some metals, such as aluminum (Al), iron (Fe), nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), silver (Ag), gold (Au), are pure elements while others, such as steel and brass, are composed of a combination of elemental metals.
d. each element is made of one kind of atom. These elements are organized in the Periodic Table by their chemical properties.
e. scientists have developed instruments that can create images of atoms and molecules showing that they are discrete and often occur in well ordered arrays.
f. differences in chemical and physical properties of substances are used to separate mixtures and identify compounds.
g. properties of solid, liquid, and gaseous substances, such as sugar (C6H12O6), water (H2O) helium (He), oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2),and carbon dioxide (CO2).
h. living organisms and most materials are composed of just a few elements.
i. common properties of salts, such as sodium chloride (NaCl).
