Pre-AP Science ~ Mrs. Goulding and Ms. Mondon

What are physical and chemical properties? In what ways can we identify when a new substance has been formed? How are the properties of substances used to determine if a possible chemical change occurred? What evidence can be used to identify the formation of a new substance from a possible chemical change? We will be able to understand that a new substance is formed in a chemical change, and evidence that can be used to demonstrate a chemical change has taken place. We will use scientific investigations used to understand chemical changes forming new substances through creating those reactions. This week we will also learn how to distinguish between those physical and chemical changes in the digestive system. We will have our assessment on these learning targets Friday, February 19.
