History and Science Behind Alchemy Modern Chemical Engineering
Grade Level: 8-9
Time: 40 Minutes
Subjects: History, Design, Science & Technology
Standards:
912.P.8 – Explore the scientific theory of atoms (also known as atomic theory) by describing the structure of atoms in terms of protons, neutrons, and electrons, and differentiate among these particles in terms of their mass, electrical charges and locations within the atom.
912.N.1 – Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.
912.N.3 – Explain that scientific laws are descriptions of specific relationships under given conditions in nature, but do not offer explanations for those relationships.
912.N.4 – Explain how scientific knowledge and reasoning provide an empirically-based perspective to inform society’s decision making.
CTE-TECED.68.ENGTEC.02 – Define scientific quantities that are used in engineering designs (e.g. mass, weight, force, voltage, current, resistance).
8.G.2.6– Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
912.GR.1.3– Prove relationships and theorems about triangles. (Angles=180)
910.SL.1.1– Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 9–10 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
CTE-TECED.68.ELCTEC.04.01 – Use a digital or analog volt-ohm meter (VOM) to obtain accurate measurements.
CTE-TECED.68.ELCTEC.02.05 – Mathematically calculate voltage, current, and resistance using Ohm’s law.
912.A-CED.1.4 – Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations. For example, rearrange Ohm’s law V = IR to highlight resistance R.
912.P.10.15 – Investigate and explain the relationships among current, voltage, resistance, and power.
CTE-TECED.68.ROBTEC.01.03 – Describe emerging technologies and their implications on the field of robotics.
CTE-TECED.68.TSPTEC.01.01 – Describe how transporting people and goods involve a combination of individuals and vehicles.
CTE-TECED.68.TSPTEC.01.02 – Identify subsystems of transportation vehicles, such as structural, propulsion, suspension, guidance, control, and support that must function together for a system to work effectively.
CTE-TECED.68.TSPTEC.01.03 – Describe subsystems of transportation vehicles, such as structural, propulsion, suspension, guidance, control, and support that must function together for a system to work effectively.
CTE-GEN.68.GENRL.26.09 – List occupations, job requirements, and job opportunities in engineering technology.
SC.6.P.11.1 – Explore the Law of Conservation of Energy by differentiating between potential and kinetic energy. Identify situations where kinetic energy is transformed into potential energy and vice versa.
SS.912.A.1.3 – Utilize timelines to identify the time sequence of historical data.
912.AR.1.1 – Identify and interpret parts of an equation or expression that represent a quantity in terms of a mathematical or real-world context, including viewing one or more of its parts as a single entity.
912.AR.1.2 – Rearrange equations or formulas to isolate a quantity of interest.
