TEXAS Chemistry Review: Atomic Structure and Nuclear Chemistry

kit #STAAR-02

The TEXAS Chemistry Review: Atomic Structure and Nuclear Chemistry kit uses engaging lab investigations and student readings to review key content for the EOC test for high school chemistry. All essential TEKS content for level II (satisfactory) student performance is covered. Students will be asked to: • Relate an element’s properties to its atomic structure • Identify alpha, beta, and gamma radiation • Interpret radioactive decay processes, nuclear reactions, and more... The kit contains all needed teacher and student print materials, lab equipment and supplies, PowerPoint files, teacher prep videos, student skill sheets and sample test materials. The kits will support up to 24 students, working in groups of 4. Extra materials may be ordered through our EXPAND-A-KIT option. Kits are designed for whole class use and require 2-3 class periods for completion.

  • TEK 6:  The student knows and understands the historical development of atomic theory. The student is expected to: (A)  understand the experimental design and conclusions used in the development of modern atomic theory, including Dalton's Postulates, Thomson's discovery of electron properties, Rutherford's nuclear atom, and Bohr's nuclear atom, (B)  understand the electromagnetic spectrum and the mathematical relationships between energy, frequency, and wavelength of light, (C)  calculate the wavelength, frequency, and energy of light using Planck's constant and the speed of light, (D)  use isotopic composition to calculate average atomic mass of an element; and (E)  express the arrangement of electrons in atoms through electron configurations and Lewis valence electron dot structures.
  • TEK 12: The student understands the basic processes of nuclear chemistry. The student is expected to: (A) describe the characteristics of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation, (B) describe radioactive decay process in terms of balanced nuclear equations; and (C) compare fission and fusion reactions.
