- Compare and contrast the atomic models of Democritus and Dalton.
- Describe the atom.
- Distinguish between the subatomic particles in terms of relative charge and mass.
- Describe the structure of the nuclear atom.
- Correlate the role of atomic number to the identity of the atom.
- Compare isotopes of atoms and calculate their atomic masses.
- Calculate the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom given its mass number and atomic number.
- Explain the relationship between unstable nuclei and radioactive decay.
- Characterize alpha, beta, and gamma radiation in terms of mass and charge.
- Read, define, and discuss key vocabulary terms: atom, isotope, Dalton’s Atomic Theory, cathode ray, electron, nucleus, proton, neutron, atomic number, mass number, atomic mass unit, atomic mass, nuclear equation, radiation, alpha particle, beta decay, gamma radiation
- Listen and write key points discussed in lecture.
- Calculate and graph the trajectory of an alpha particle as it passes near the nucleus of a gold atom.
- Analyze and discuss conclusions based on experimental data gathered from accurate measurement procedures.
