Chemistry

Algebra I

CH.2 i: Historical and quantum models. A2: Represent verbal quantitative situations algebraically and evaluate these expressions for given replacement values of the variables. Students will choose an appropriate computational technique, such as mental mathematics, calculator, or paper and pencil. Physics

A10: Apply the laws of exponents to perform operations on expressions with integral exponents, using scientific notation when appropriate.  PH.9 b: Fundamental wave processes (reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, polarization, Doppler effect) Algebra II

PH.9 c: Light and sound in terms of wave models. AII. 2: Add, subtract, multiply, divide, and simplify rational expressions, including complex fractions.   PH.10 a: Properties and behaviors of radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma rays. AII.19: Collect and analyze data to make predictions and solve practical problems. Graphing calculators will be used to investigate scatterplots and to determine the equation for a curve of best fit. Models will include linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions.   Physical Science

Geometry

PS.8 b: Resonance  G.7: Solve practical problems involving right triangles by using the Pythagorean Theorem, properties of special right triangles, and right triangle trigonometry. Solutions will be expressed in radical form or as decimal approximations.  PS.8 c: Nature of mechanical waves PS.9 a: Wave behavior of light (reflection, refraction, diffraction, and interference).    PS.9 b:images formed by lenses and mirrors. ## Student Response
