Structures and Properties of Matter
OVERVIEW Show All | Hide All | Top

Students build understandings of what occurs at the atomic and molecular scale. Students apply their understanding that pure substances have characteristic properties and are made from a single type of atom or molecule. They also provide a molecular level accounts to explain states of matter and changes between states. The crosscutting concepts of cause and effect, scale, proportion and quantity, structure and function, interdependence of science, engineering, and technology, and the influence of science, engineering and technology on society and the natural world provide a framework for understanding the disciplinary core ideas.  Students demonstrate grade appropriate proficiency in developing and using models, and obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information. Students are also expected to use the scientific and engineering practices to demonstrate understanding of the core ideas.
