Assessment

Nuclear Stability (C2.5a)

Mass Defect (C3.5a)

Solutions - Density (C4.7b)

Atomic Structure (C4.8 A-D)

Neutral Atoms, Ions, & Isotopes (C4.10A-B)

  • List the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons for any given ion or isotope.
  • Recognize that an element always contains the same number of protons.
      *  Atomic Structure Worksheet -  Determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons of various atoms 
      *  Element Math Game -  Welcome to It's Elemental - Element Math Game! The computer will randomly pick an element and present you with that element's data from the Periodic Table of Elements. Use that information to answer the question that the computer asks about the number of protons, neutrons, electrons or nucleons (particles in the nucleus) that an atom of that element contains. Press the 'Check my answer' button after you have entered your answer.* From Jefferson Lab

      *  Build Atoms Yourself - One way to find out about the structure of something is to take it apart. Another way is to construct
          the item from its parts. This interactive model will allow you to build atoms of different elements from a collection of
          subatomic particles.
