Brief Summary of Unit

Enduring Understanding:
Students will understand that:
• The phases of matter are directly correlated to the motion of molecules.
• The behavior of gases is related to temperature, pressure and volume (kinetic theory).
• There are different methods of heat/energy transfer within a system.
• The temperature remains constant during any phase change (phase diagram).
• Whenever work is done energy is transformed or transferred.
• Potential Energy is “static” and Kinetic Energy is energy in motion.

Essential Question:
• How the phases of matter are directly related to molecular motion?
• What is the difference between conduction, convection and radiation?
• What is the relationship between energy and work?
• What does temperature have to do with energy?
Learning Goals

Students will know: (Knowledge)
• Mass, specific heat and temperature determine the heat capacity for a substance.
• Kinetic theory explains molecular motion in regards to heat transferred.
• Conduction, convection and radiation are ways thermal energy is transferred.
• The law of conservation of energy applies to heat transfer.

Students will be able to do(Skills)
• Energy is transformed or transferred when work is done.
• Energy is conserved when work is done.
• Mass, specific heat and temperature determine the heat capacity of a substance.
• Kinetic theory explains molecular motion in regard to heat transferred.
• Conduction, convection, and radiation are ways thermal energy is transferred.
• The Law of Conservation of Energy applies to heat transfer.
• Cite evidence to support their opinion.
• Assess an article to show the extent to which the reasoning and evidence in a text support an author’s claim.

Learning Activities

• Collaborative groups
• Distributed practice (Specific Heat and Temperature Conversion calculations)
• Experiment: Specific Heat Lab
• Compare and Contrast: Potential and Kinetic Energy
• Read/Critique/Summarize/Opinion with the Article: Turning Tires Into Gas for Energy and New
