SPS2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain how atoms bond to form stable compounds.

a. Analyze and interpret data to predict properties of ionic and covalent compounds. (Clarification statement: Properties are limited to types of bonds formed, elemental composition, melting point, boiling point, and conductivity.)

b. Develop and use models to predict formulas for stable, binary ionic compounds based on balance of charges.

c. Use the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) nomenclature for translating between chemical names and chemical formulas. (Clarification statement: Limited to binary covalent and binary ionic, containing main group elements, compounds but excludes polyatomic ions.)

Lesson 1: Thurs 10/5
1. introduce PBL:
assign each student one metal and one nonmetal

Lesson 2: Fri 10/6
2. read and notes pages 90-100

HOMEWORK: section reviews on pages 93 & 97

Lesson 3: Mon 10/9
1. warm up
2. Stations: Students will hypothesize as to whether examples represent compounds, mixtures or elements and how they relate to what "pure" means

. Follow up discussion whereby the students support their claims made at the stations

Lesson 4: Tues 10/10
1. warm up
2. Have the students experiment with trying to separate some of the example sin the stations visited in the previous lesson

All students will take the PSAT 8/9 on Wednesday, 10/18, starting promptly at 9:15. Due to the College Board return procedures, there will be no make-up testing for this test, so please ensure your student is present on testing day. Contact Joni Myler if you have any questions:

Lesson 6: Thurs 10/12
1. warm up
4. complete the ionic bonding side only (the covalent side will be used later)
