Mendelian Genetics Using Monohybrids
Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious, real-world scenario to determine the probability of each breeding pair of dogs producing offspring with the desired trait for a fictitious client.
What’s the Verdict? An Investigation of Herbicide Drift on Grapevines
Students will investigate the possible effects of herbicide drift on grape production by making inferences from an article about a local vineyard and using various experimental materials.
Students will model real-world formulas and chemical reactions to investigate the meaning of limiting reactants.
6 Chapter 6: Stoichiometry
In this chapter, students are introduced to the mole, mass relationships, and stoichiometric calculations with balanced equations.
2 Chapter 10: Light
In this chapter, we discuss visible light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.
8 Chapter 3: Measurements
In this chapter, we strengthen math skills necessary for chemistry problems and discuss the SI units of measurement. Additionally, we convert between units of measurement and discuss interpreting data from graphs and tables.
3 Chapter 14: Nuclear Chemistry
In this chapter, we discuss nuclear reactions that occur in unstable nuclides.
8 Chapter 11: Electron Configuration and Periodic Trends
In this chapter, we discuss determining electron configurations and periodic trends.
3 Chapter 4: Science and Me
In this chapter, we will discuss how chemistry affects our everyday lives and how you can find careers in chemistry.
6 Chapter 8: Gases
In this chapter, we discuss the properties of gas particles and the laws that govern their behavior.
6 Chapter 12: Lewis Structures
In this chapter, we discuss how to write electron dot symbols for different compounds and the VSEPR Theory.
4 Chapter 13: pH Calculation
In this chapter, we discuss how to identify an acid or base and to find the pH of an acid or base.
3 Chapter 2: Scientific Methods
In this chapter, we discuss the general scope of science and chemistry, as well as the limitations of science. Additionally, we cover the steps of scientific methods and discoveries, and conduct an experiment to demonstrate appropriate procedures.
7 Chapter 9: Thermodynamics and Energy
In this chapter, we discuss energy changes in a reaction, and how to determine the energy produced or required by a reaction.
3 Chapter 1: Safety Lab Practices
In this chapter, we will discuss lab safety, safety data sheets, GHS labels, and proper disposal and recycling when finished with lab work.
12 Chapter 5: Matter
In this chapter, we will explain matter and its properties. We will also discuss the periodic table and how to name various compounds.
9 Chapter 7: Reactions
In this chapter, we will discuss solutions and different types of reactions.
Energy Transfer in an Ecosystem
All matter contains energy. Energy can be transferred from one object to another. Energy transformation can occur through the conversion of energy from one form to another. Energy is never created nor destroyed; it is always transferred and/or transformed. Students will demonstrate how energy is transformed and transferred in an ecosystem. To do this, students will create energy pyramids by stacking cups that represent organisms and available amounts of energy. Students will graph and analyze the data.
Producing Plump Produce
In collaborative groups, the students investigate the transport of water within potato cells placed in various tonicity solutions.
Plant, Parts, and Function
Students use prior knowledge of body systems as they make connections to systems in plants. Students learn that some plant systems have similar functions as the respective animal systems. The lesson highlights the following systems in plants: root system, shoot system, vascular system, and reproductive system.
