Resources for Learning Module

Below you will find a complete list of resources and materials that you will use for this module on the Structure and Properties of Matter.

Georgia Standard of Excellence : S8P1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the structure and properties of matter.

Unit Objective: Students will analyze the structure and properties of matter and show mastery by scoring 80% on unit post test.

PS1A - Structure and Properties of Matter

In this 11 minute introductory video about Matter *the presenter explains what you should know about *Matter from elementary through high school. All resources that follow this introduction will help you develop a deeper knowledge of each concept about the Structure and Properties of Matter.

The Physical Properties and Chemical Properties of Matter

This video explains the differences between physical and chemical properties and how they relate to physical and chemical change.

After viewing all other resources use this slide show to as a form of written notes to help serve as a reminder of how all concepts involved in the Structure and Properties of Matter connect.

Matter: Definition & the Five States of Matter | Live Science

Although this article explains a fifth state of matter we will only focus on understanding four of the states: Solid, Liquid, Gas, and Plasma. The primary takeaway from this article is the particle arrangements and the way each of the four aforementioned states of matter move. It's important to note how the States of Matter change when energy is added or removed. There are videos embedded in this article about Plasma that may be helpful with understanding how the Plasma state differs from the Gas state.

Pure substances vs mixtures

Pure substances and mixtures are** compared and contrasted** in this reading. The reading provides excellent examples and underlines key words to help focus the readers attention to its important takeaways.

Orginial Doc address:

Pure Substances vs Mixtures

Additional resource: This video adds value to the pure substances and mixtures reading. In this video the presenter discusses the ways in which all matter is classified as either pure substances or mixtures (homogeneous and heterogeneous).

Atoms: StudyJams!

The cool kids of Study Jams will discuss what atoms are, how they effect the world around us, and what each atom consist of.

5.1: The Law of Conservation of Matter - Chemistry LibreTexts

This article explains the Law of Conservation of Matter as well as provides examples in the form of balanced equations. It also explains how the Law of Conservation of Matter and the Law of Conservation of Mass are used interchangeably to explain the same principle.

General Chemistry - PhET Simulations

This awesome site allows you to bring Matter alive through the use of web based simulations.Science is an action subject so you must be hands on even virtually to unlock the learning. The following simulations directly correspond with this unit: Build an Atom, Build a Molecule, States of Matter, and Balancing Equations

If you have a heard time pronouncing any of the vocabulary words in this unit utilize Google Translate to help you hear the way it should be said. If English isn't your first language you can customize the word into the language you are fluent in.

The Law of Conservation of Matter

Professor Dave explains The Law of Conservation of Matter and explains how it is applied to The Law of Conservation of Mass.

The Four States of Matter - Explained

In this video we will compare and contrast the 4 states of mater and then discuss changes in state of matter and how energy is either lost or absorbed during.

Physical and Chemical Properties of Matter | Introduction to Chemistry

All properties of matter are either extensive or intensive and either physical or chemical. Extensive properties, such as mass and volume, depend on the amount of matter that is being measured. Intensive properties, such as density and color, do not depend on the amount of matter. Both extensive and intensive properties are physical properties, which means they can be measured without changing the substance’s chemical identity. For example, the freezing point of a substance is a physical property: when water freezes, it’s still water (H2O)—it’s just in a different physical state.
