*2015-16 NTPS Chemistry Pacing Guide *

__Semester 1__

**Scientific
Practices, Problem-Solving & Measurement **

* Incorporate skills into a kick off/high
interest problem solving lab & integrate throughout the course*

1.
Quantitative Tools for Chemistry: complete calculations using **factor analysis**, **S.I. Units, Scientific Notation **and demonstrate use of **Significant Figure Rules**.

2.
When using
measurements and quantitative values demonstrate **uncertainty, accuracy and precision**.

3.
Solve problems using a **specified problem solving method** (elaborate factor analysis
conversion, rates, density, . .)

**Matter, Atomic Structure, Molar
Concepts**

4.
Understand the **structure of an atom** in terms of its **subatomic particles**; **isotopes** and **ions**; differentiate between the **classification and separation of matter** (mixtures, pure
substances…)

5.
Demonstrate **molar conversions** between **grams, moles, molecules, atoms** and **molarity **(concentration)

**Nomenclature,
Chemical Formulas, Basic Bonding**

6. Memorize commonly used ions

7. Write **chemical
formula and names** for ionic and covalent compounds and **balance chemical equations**.

8. Sketch representations of atoms, molecules and ions.

**Chemical
Reactions and Equations **

9.
Predict common
products for** synthesis, decomposition,
combustion, neutralization, single and double replacement chemical reactions
and write balanced equations **including demonstrating** states**.** **

**Stoichiometry **

10.
Solve **theoretical yield** problems including
percent yield,

11.
Solve **limiting reactant** problems.

Real Life Application Lab

__Semester 2__

**Gases **

12. Demonstrate a conceptual understanding of Ideal and Real Gases. (KMT, Effusion, Diffusion, Pressure and pressure conversions, Daltons Law of Partial Pressures, Absolute Zero, Molar Volume of a Gas, composition of the atmosphere )

13.
Apply **Gas **Laws to solve gas **relationship problems** (Boyle’s,
Charles’s, Gay-Lussac’s, Avogadro’s and Combined Gas laws)

14.
Solve **Gas Stoichiometry problems** using the
Ideal Gas Equation.

**Aspects of Chemical Systems
(Rate, Reversibility, and Energetics)**

**Kinetics**

15. Describe factors effecting the rates of reactions (concentration, temperature, and surface area)

**Equilibrium**

16. Application of Le Chatlier’s principle on stressors within reversible reactions (equilibrium)

**Thermodynamics **

17. Diagram the system and surroundings, determine the direction of the flow of heat and quantify the energy change.

18. Demonstrate Calorimetry by solving quantitative problems using q=mc∆T

19.
Apply the rules
for Enthalpy in quantitative problems *(will
include Stoichiometry calculations)*

**Bonding and Molecular
Interactions**

20. Explain the mechanics of an emission of electromagnetic radiation (photon) and calculate the energy, wavelength or frequency.

21. Determine an atom or ion’s electron configuration

22. Demonstrating your knowledge of periodic trends

23. Draw Lewis Structures for various compounds, predict the molecular geometry and determine if it is polar or nonpolar.

24. Predict the type of Intermolecular Force between two molecules to be Ion-dipole, dipole-dipole, H-bond or Dispersion

**Acids and Bases/Solutions **

25. Solution chemistry (acid/base, solubility rules, net ionic equations)

26. Identify the acid, base, conjugate acid and conjugate base in a chemical reaction and differentiate between a strong acid/base and a weak acid/base.

27. Calculate the pH of a strong acid or base and define a solution to be acidic or basic
