Matter and Its Interactions

In this module, students who demonstrate understanding of the matter and its interactions can

  • Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
  • Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
  • Develop models to illustrate the changes in the composition of the nucleus of the atom and the energy released during the processes of fission, fusion, and radioactive decay.
  • Communicate scientific and technical information about why the particulate-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
  • Analyze data to support the claim that the combined gas law describes the relationships among volume, pressure, and temperature for an ideal gas.
  • Use evidence to support claims regarding the formation, properties and behaviors of solutions at bulk scales.

License Info

  • Each Learner license includes 1 student’s desk and 1 teacher’s desk
  • Each Classroom license includes 1 teacher’s desk and 10 student’s desks
  • The Student’s Desk contains all Learning Modules assigned to students by the teacher. STEM guides, Poly & Mer, step students through each module by offering clues and information to help students complete the hands-on activities, assessments, and experiments in the module. Each module comes with resources which include video, audio, MS Office documents, .pdf, links to websites, and more. Students can interact and collaborate on projects using the private chat and email system, as well as ask teachers questions at any time, all within a closed social network.
  • The Teacher’s Desk contains classroom management tools for mastery-based learning, the communication systems described in the student’s desk, real-time teacher commenting on work submitted for each module step and grading, real-time metrics-based monitoring of student progress, a grade book, and more.
