Description

Move the Chemistry book and observe what happens.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Describe a model for friction a molecular level.
  • Describe matter in terms of molecular motion. The description should include: diagrams to support the description, how the temperature affects the image, what are the differences and similarities between solid, liquid and gas particle motion; how the size and speed of gas molecules relate to everyday objects.
