Physical Science A SGI Lesson # 18 (10-31-2018)


Chemical Formulas





Unit S.M.A.R.T. Goal:

In this unit students will develop and use models in addition to using mathematics and computational thinking. Specifically in the field of Patterns, Energy and Matter, and Types of Chemical Interactions. The goal is for a student average of 85%.



Students will be able to better explain the following by the end of the  lesson today:

  • Structure and Properties of Matter
  • Chemical Reactions
  • Types of Interaction


Behavioral Norms:

  • Learn from mistakes
  • Tolerance
  • Participate
  • Personal electronics only when appropriate
