Honors Chemistry

Unit 2: Formula Writing

Enduring Understandings

  1. There are logical rules for naming compounds

  2. Chemical formulas provide the type and ratio of atoms in a compound

  3. Names and formulas can be used to represent chemical compounds

Unit 5: Atomic Theory

Enduring Understandings

  1. The basic structure of all atoms is consistent

  2. Atoms of the same element may differ in the number of electrons, neutrons, or both

  3. Scientific ideas are modified based on accumulated evidence

  4. Atoms of different elements have distinct properties related to their composition

Unit 6: Periodicity

Enduring Understandings

  1. The periodic table is organized to provide information about the elements

  2. Properties of elements appear in predictable patterns on the periodic table

Unit 1: Classification of Matter

Enduring Understandings

  1. Scientific measurement and data collection are the basis of scientific knowledge

  2. The type and availability of measurement instruments affects the type and quality of data collected

  3. Matter can be classified by states, properties, and composition

  4. Physical changes do not involve change in identity, whereas chemical changes do involve changes of identity

Unit 3: Reactions

Enduring Understandings

  1. The effects of chemical reactions are predictable

  2. Symbols represent both microscopic and macroscopic interactions

  3. Matter is conserved during a chemical reaction

Unit 4: Stoichiometry

Enduring Understandings

  1. The mole is the basic unit in chemistry for measuring numbers of particles

  2. The mole concept uses Avogadro’s number to relate particles to mass

  3. Quantities can be predicted in chemical reactions by using mole ratios

  4. Products are limited by the amount of reactants and the limitation can be predicted
