SC.8.P.8.4 Classify and compare substances on the basis of characteristic physical properties that can be demonstrated or measured; for example, density, thermal or electrical conductivity, solubility, magnetic properties, melting and boiling points, and know that these properties are independent of the amount of the sample.
SC.8.P.8.3 Explore and describe the densities of various materials through measurement of their masses and volumes.
SC.912.P.8.2 Differentiate between physical and chemical properties and physical and chemical changes of matter.
SC.8.P.8.1 Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by using models to explain the motion of particles in solids, liquids, and gases.
SC.8.P.9.2 Differentiate between physical changes and chemical changes.
SC.7.N.1.4 Identify test variables (independent variables) and outcome variables (dependent variables) in an experiment.
SC.8.P.9.1 Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass by demonstrating and concluding that mass is conserved when substances undergo physical and chemical changes.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
Students will review for the DIA 3 using class demonstrations, review games and review assignments.
The learning targets being reviewed are:
• classify substances based on their physical properties, including: o thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, solubility, magnetism, melting and boiling points, volume, and density
o NOS Focus – Design a controlled experiment
• calculate the density, mass or volume of solids, liquids and gases using the formula Density = mass ÷ volume o measure the mass and volume of solids, liquids and gases
