Introduction l.jpg

This course will be following these guidelines:

Organized by related techniques, called a spiral curriculum

15 Unit exams

Each quarter you must choose, and complete, a project from one of the units studied within that quarter, all project ideas are posted next to grade sheet, these projects vary from research to presentation - participation is required!


What will you need l.jpg
What will you need?


Open mind and willingness to learn

2 inch 3 ring binder for notes and handouts

Pencil and Blue or Black pen ONLY for labs and exams


Grading l.jpg


  • This course will be graded using the following guidelines:

  • Exams and Quizzes– 50% of grade

    33% = Unit Exams 17% = Castle Learning and Quizzes

  • Homework and Classwork – 25% of grade

  • Labs – 25% of grade

Grading5 l.jpg


  • Exams – 33% of grade

    • 15 unit exams

    • 1 comprehensive final exam commonly called the REGENTS

Grading6 l.jpg


Quizzes and Project Participation – 17%

  • 4 projects, corresponding with each quarter

  • Be sure to check the project idea sheet regularly, don’t get caught at the quarter deadline without your projects!!

  • Expect Weekly quizzes that are cumulative and will be performed on Castle Learning Website…

Project Participation

  • First Quarter Possibilities

    Adopt an Element

    Celebrate Mole Day

    College Level Lab

Project Participation

  • Second Quarter Possibilities

    Build a Better Periodic Table

    Scientific Newspaper

    College Level Lab

Grading9 l.jpg


Project Participation

  • Third Quarter

    Science Fair

  • Fourth Quarter

    Journal Research Paper

Grading10 l.jpg


Labs – 25% of grade

  • Lab Reports always due TWO days after completion of lab

  • Graded using Rubric, out of 10

  • 1 point off every day late

    • After 5 days, the best you can hope for is a satisfactory, which goes in as a 5 in the grade book but earns lab minutes….

Grading11 l.jpg


Labs – 25% of grade

  • Typed Lab Reports Cover – to be stapled to front of hand-out or handed in separate in lieu of lab book

    • Includes – purpose/hypothesis/question, data tables, answers to questions, and conclusion

    • The conclusion will become more difficult each quarter!

Grading12 l.jpg


Labs – 25% of grade

  • All labs must be turned in within the quarter it was completed

  • No make-up labs will be performed outside of quarter the lab was originally set-up

  • Reports can always be turned in up until end of year for credit to take REGENTS

Chemistry Intro


What is Chemistry?

1) Why is chemistry often called the central science?

2) What is the scientific method?

3) What are the steps of the scientific method?

Chemistry intro14 l.jpg
Chemistry Intro


Chemistry- the study of composition, structure, and properties of matter, the changes which matter undergoes, and the energy accompanying these changes.

Chemistry has been called the central science because it overlaps so many sciences. Engineering, Policeman, Fireman, Hair stylist ect.

Chemistry intro15 l.jpg
Chemistry Intro


  • Scientific Method- an orderly and systematic approach to gather knowledge.

    • Observation- using your senses

    • Hypothesis- an educated guess

    • Experiment- a control and variable

    • Conclusion- may raise new

      questions and lead

      to new hypotheses

      and new experiments.

Chemistry Intro


Natural law- how nature behaves but does not explain why nature behaves in that particular way.

Ex: "The sun will come up tomorrow

Theory- explains why nature behaves in the way described by the natural law. It also predicts the results of further experiments.

Ex: Theory of evolution.

Scientific Method- real science does not have to follow steps IN ORDER.

Types of matter l.jpg
Types of Matter


  • What types of matter exist?

  • What is the difference between a solid, liquid and gas?

  • 2) How can attractive forces help determine the type of matter I’m looking at?

  • 3) What is the difference between a pure substance and a mixture?

Types of matter19 l.jpg
Types of Matter


What types of matter exist?

4) What is the difference between an element and a compound?

5) What is an atom actually made up of?

6) How do I identify the types of mixtures? How do I separate them?

Types of matter23 l.jpg
Types of Matter


Pure Substance

1. Element

2. Compound


1. Homogeneous

2. Heterogeneous

Types of matter25 l.jpg
Types of Matter


Pure Substance

1. Element – CANNOT be broken down, smallest particle is known as an ATOM

2. Compound – CAN be broken down into its elements by breaking apart bonds, always exists in perfect whole number ratios

Properties of matter l.jpg
Properties of Matter


  • What are the properties of matter?

  • What is the difference between a physical property and a chemical property?

  • 2) What descriptive words would you use for physical properties?

  • 3) What descriptive word would you use for chemical properties?

Energy and matter l.jpg
Energy and Matter


  • How are energy and matter connected?

  • What are the different types of energy?

  • 2) What descriptive word or measurement do we use to describe the energy of matter?

Changes in matter l.jpg
Changes in Matter


  • How can matter change from one form to another?

  • What descriptive words do we use to identify the ways that matter can change form?

  • 2) What are the definitions for the variety of changes we can see?

Changes in matter46 l.jpg
Changes in Matter

A change in the state of matter ALWAYS requires a change in energy…

- energy going into the system


- energy coming out of the system
