PART 2. Introduction to Matter.
Big Ideas:
Elements and Compounds have specific physical and chemical properties that determine their practical uses
The use of elements and compounds have both positive and negative effects on society and the environment.

  Student Activities
Success Criteria:  Students should be able to

The Properties of Matter


Oct 15-17






Note: Physical and Chemical Properties.pdf
