Class Notes & Resources:
External Resources:Follow along below and use the interactive links to guide you through your learning targets.
Learning Target 1 : This learning target introduces you to the most common form of ENERGY.... waves. Check out the man himself : Bill Nye the Science Guy "Waves". Before you can move forward through the unit, it is essential that you fully understand the relationship between the ENERGY, Wavelength & Frequency of waves.
Learning Target 2: Throughout your study of these concepts you will be focusing your attention on the differences and similarities of Electromagnetic waves and Mechanical waves. First off Check out this next clip to get a basic understanding of the difference between Two Types of Waves. The previous link showed a clip that helps you visualize the different motions that carry ENERGY in two very different ways. Now that you got a basic understanding of the difference between the two go to this next link to see a presentation about their different motions, parts of the waves, medium of travel, speed of travel, sample questions etc.... Transverse vs Longitudinal. Take the time and learn to Think About All Light as Waves
Learning Target 3: Up next on your journey is a study of the Doppler effect, a phenomena that allows us to know whether a sound or light is approaching or moving away from the observer. Check out this video of the Doppler effect for pretty much everything you need to know about Doppler effect of sound. The Doppler Effect occurs as a result of moving light waves as well. Check out this video about REDshift & BLUEshift.
Learning Target 4: Brush up on your knowledge of Reflection, Refraction, Diffraction, and Interference by clicking HERE
Learning Target 5: If you are not Energy, then you must be matter. The basics of matter surrounds our understanding of the Atom. The smallest building block of an element that maintains the physical and chemical properties of the element. Check out this video here called What is an Atom? The Periodic table is organized based on the number of protons atoms have. We can use the Atomic # and Mass # to determine the amount of protons, neutrons, & electrons. Make sure that you understand why the mass number appears as a decimal on periodic tables. with this video Isotopes and Average Atomic Mass. Check out this videos on Isotopes to better understand.
Learning Target 6: Check out Hank leading us through the development of the Periodic Table in this episode of crash course chemistry's "The Periodic Table". We can use the periodic table to find all kinds of information about elements. Such as determining how many valence electrons atoms of various elements have, if an element is a metal, nonmetal, or metalloid, and we can also check what group/family each element belongs to.
