Unit 5 High School Atoms & The Periodic Table of Elements
STANDARDS
SPS1. Students will investigate our current understanding of the atom.
a. Examine the structure of the atom in terms of proton, electron, and neutron locations.atomic mass and atomic number.
atoms with different numbers of neutrons (isotopes).
explain the relationship of the proton number to the element’s identity.

SPS4. Students will investigate the arrangement of the Periodic Table.
a. Determine the trends of the following:
Number of valence electrons
Types of ions formed by representative elements
Location of metals, nonmetals, and metalloids
Phases at room temperature
b. Use the Periodic Table to predict the above properties for representative elements

SPS3. Students will distinguish the characteristics and components of radioactivity.
a. Differentiate among alpha and beta particles and gamma radiation.
b. Differentiate between fission and fusion.
c. Explain the process half-life as related to radioactive decay.
d. Describe nuclear energy, its practical application as an alternative energy source, and
its potential problems
