PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson aligns with the Common Core State Standards:
STANDARD 5 - Matter and Energy
"The teacher understands the nature and properties of energy in its various forms, and the processes by which energy is exchanged and/or transformed.
5A. understands the atomic and nuclear structure of matter and the relationship to chemical and physical properties
5E. analyzes the properties of materials in relation to their chemical or physical structures and evaluate uses of the materials based on their properties
5F. explains conservation of mass and energy and explains interactions of energy with matter, including changes in state"

PowerPoint lesson I in the "Nuclear Chemistry" unit VIII - introductory chemistry. This lesson identifies the process of nuclear decay and the three types of nuclear radiation; explains the sources of nuclear radiation and how it affects matter; and lists the methods used in detecting nuclear radiation.
A separate student PowerPoint worksheet for this lesson is also available.

PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and links to short videos to further student understanding.
PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject.
