Chemical and Nuclear Reactions
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%.
What are the uses of chemical reactions in the real world?
- Learn from mistakes
- Personal electronics only when appropriate
