  • Learning Target/Question
  • Activities/Strategies
  • Assessments
  • Assignment

Use a chart to track scientists, their experiments, their results, and the significance of the results for the model of the atom, and the limitations of each model. You will add more scientists and their work later.

  • JJ Thomson - cathode rays 1897; Robert Millkan - oil drop 1909; plum pudding model
  • Ernest Rutherford(geiger, Marsden) - gold foil and alpha particles 1911; beginning of solar system model
  • James Chadwick (not in text - what did he do?)

Atomic Structure, Part 1 and Counting Atoms

  • Discuss Counting by Weighing activity, and Calculations
  • Review atomic structure so far: Complete questions on Model 2-4 handout
  • Build on our understanding of this work to examine parts of an atom.
  • State the atomic number and mass number, and the number of protons and neutrons and electrons in an atom of any element using the periodic table
  • Explain the differences between isotopes of the same element.

Assignment:

  • Structure of the Periodic Table

 

  • Learning Target/Question
  • Activities/Strategies
  • Assessments
  • Assignment

  • The atom, as a model
    • Use the model as we know it so far to make meaning of the periodic table
    • Use the model of the atom to detect patterns on the periodic table.
  • How ions form, and why this is important: See notes (also in What We Did in Class Today)
  • Your knowledge of the ions formed and the pattern made by ions on the periodic table will be very useful as you make meaning of the periodic table.
  • Development of a model for determining the number of valence electrons in an atom by its position on the periodic table. You now know 44 of the 66 ions we use frequently (the mobatomic ions), just by understanding the periodic table.
