Finer grained standards that are part of this one
Develop and use models to describe and predict mechanisms of the quantum mechanical model of the atom.
Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the macro scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
Evaluate a solution to a complex, real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and tradeoffs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
Develop models to illustrate the changes in the composition of the nucleus of the atom and the energy released during the processes of fission, fusion, and radioactive decay.
Develop and use models to predict and explain forces that are in and between molecules.
Evaluate the evidence supporting claims about how atoms absorb and emit energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation.
Use mathematical representations to quantify matter through the analysis of patterns in chemical compounds at different scales.
