“I can” Statements

Science 10 Unit 1 “I can” Statements

Curriculum Outcome I know it I need to review I don’t know it
I can describe the basic particles that make up atoms
I can identify historical examples of how humans worked with chemical substances to meet their basic needs
I can outline the role of evidence in the development of the atomic model consisting of protons and neutrons (nucleons) and electrons; i.e., Dalton, Thomson, Rutherford, Bohr
I can explain, using the periodic table, how elements combine to form compounds, and follow IUPAC guidelines for naming ionic compounds and simple molecular compounds
I can illustrate an awareness of WHMIS guidelines, and demonstrate safe practices in the handling, storage and disposal of chemicals in the laboratory and at home
I can explain the importance of and need for the IUPAC system of naming compounds, in terms of the work that scientists do and the need to communicate clearly and precisely
I can explain, using the periodic table, how and why elements combine to form compounds in specific ratios
I can predict formulas and write names for ionic and molecular compounds and common acids, using a periodic table, a table of ions and IUPAC rules
I can classify ionic and molecular compounds, acids and bases on the basis of their properties; i.e., conductivity, pH, solubility, state
I can predict whether an ionic compound is relatively soluble in water, using a solubility chart
I can outline the issues related to personal and societal use of potentially toxic or hazardous compounds
I can identify and classify chemical changes, and write word and balanced chemical equations for significant chemical reactions, as applications of Lavoisier’s law of conservation of mass
I can provide examples of household, commercial and industrial processes that use chemical reactions to produce useful substances and energy
I can identify chemical reactions that are significant in societies
I can describe the evidence for chemical changes
I can differentiate between endothermic and exothermic chemical reactions
I can classify and identify categories of chemical reactions; i.e., formation, decomposition, hydrocarbon combustion, single replacement, double replacement
I can translate word equations to balanced chemical equations and vice versa for chemical reactions that occur in living and nonliving systems
I can predict the products of formation (synthesis) and decomposition, single and double replacement, and hydrocarbon combustion chemical reactions, when given the reactants
I can define the mole and apply the concept to calculate quantities of substances made of other chemical species
I can interpret balanced chemical equations in terms of moles of chemical species, and relate the mole concept to the law of conservation of mass
