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 III in the "Nuclear Chemistry" Unit VIII - introductory chemistry. This lesson describes nuclear forces and their effects; compares & contrasts nuclear fission and fusion, and explains how nuclear energy is produced.
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.
A class activity is included at the end of each lesson and a 20-question interactive quiz/review at kahoot.it is also included as a link in the last slide.

*All PowerPoint lessons; review programs; student worksheets/activities and assessments for this unit can be found under the "Introductory Chemistry Complete Unit VIII "Nuclear Chemistry" zip file folder.
