Science Year 9 Remote Learning Map for Self Isolation of up to 14 days

Students can chose to start at the top of the learning map and work their way chronologically down the list which will help with memory retention or go to an area directed by their teacher.

Atomic structure and the periodic table SELF ISOLATING REMOTE LEARNING LINKS


1.1 Draw a diagram in order to show the structure of the atom, labelling the subatomic particles and  Use the information from the periodic table in order to calculate the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in an atom.
1.2 Illustrate and interpret the electronic structure of common elements.
1.3 Define an element giving examples.
1.4 Explain the arrangement of the periodic table in terms of atomic number.
1.5 Describe how the periodic table has changed from early designs to the present model.
1.6 Define a compound and give common examples of how compounds are formed from elements in the periodic table.
1.7 Write word and balanced symbol equations in order to describe chemical reactions that form compounds.
1.8 Define a mixture and suggest an appropriate separation technique in order to separate a mixture.
1.9 Carry out experiments in order to separate mixtures using filtration, crystallisation, distillation, fractional distillation and chromatography.
1.10 Describe how the model of the atom has evolved from early models to the current nuclear model.
1.11 Use the periodic table in order to label the positions and properties of metals and non-metals.
1.12  Describe the properties of the elements in group 0 and relate this to their atomic structure.
1.13 Describe the properties and reactivity of group 1 metals including explaining how the reactivity increases down the group.
1.14 Describe the properties of the elements in group 7 including explaining how the reactivity decreases down the group.
1.15 SEPS ONLY -Compare the properties of transition metals with group 1 metals including reactivity.

3.1 Draw diagrams and explain the arrangement of particles in solids, liquids and gases.
3.2 State the various changes of state that can occur and how this represents a physical change and a change in internal energy.
3.3 Calculate the specific heat capacity of a substance using the equation Energy change = Mass x specific heat capacity x temperature change.
3.4 Use the equation Energy = mass x latent heat in order to make calculations.
3.5 RP – Use the equation Density = mass/ volume. Use a variety of methods in order to calculate the density of regular and irregular shaped objects.
3.6 Describe how gases exert pressure on the walls of a container and how that pressure is related to the motion of the particles and the temperature.
3.7 SEPS ONLY -Use the equation pressure x volume = constant to calculate how changes in one variable affect the other.
3.8 SEPS ONLY- Explain how doing work on an enclosed gas leads to an increase in pressure.             (HT ONLY)
