Product Description
This is a set of PowerPoint notes I created for my high school physical science classes. They are also appropriate for high school chemistry classes. When purchasing this file, you will receive an 18 slide PowerPoint document.

This note set includes types of nuclear radiation (alpha, gamma, beta, etc), radioactive decay, how to solve alpha and beta decay equations, calculating half-life, fission, fusion, and pros and cons of nuclear power. This set also includes 3 embedded videos: a clip from Spiderman 2 where Dr. Octavius demonstrates his nuclear fusion reactor, a photo collage of images from Chernobyl, and a video explaining how the nuclear power plant failed in Japan after the 2011 earthquake.

When I use these notes in class, I use them over the span of a week or two. I will only cover a section at a time. These are not meant to be taught in one class period, but as an entire unit.

These notes are tied to the Physical Science Georgia Performance Standards:

SPS3. Students will distinguish the characteristics and
components of radioactivity.
a. Differentiate among alpha and beta particles and gamma radiation.
b. Differentiate between fission and fusion.
c. Explain the process half-life as related to radioactive decay.
d. Describe nuclear energy, its practical application as an alternative energy source, and its potential problems.
