 BENCHMMARK TEST.

Monday - 11/24

**************************************************

Topic: End of the semester BENCHMMARK
                                                 TEST.

NOTE: Although this is a test, it is also correctable. Please approach this test as it is intenden. It is to be a thermometer as to how far you have come and what we need to review. Please give it your best effort. it will serve as a self-assessment.

Warm-Up:
     - Question of the Day

Group Work: 

We can....

Get an A++++ on our assessment.

Vocabulary:

 Success

Independent Work Exercise: 

Benchmark Assessment


Closure: Paper Snowflakes to share

**************************************************

Highlights
of
Tuesday

Big Idea:     Understand the role of the nucleus in radiation and radioactivity.

Essential Questions: 

= What is the difference between alpha, beta, and gamma radiation?

= What is the difference between fission and fussion?

= Why is the concept of half-life important?

Objectives: I can...

..... Compare the characteristics of alpha and beta particles and gamma rays – composition, mass, penetrability.
..... Compare alpha, beta, and gamma decay processes –alpha decay reduces the mass of an atom by 4 and the atomic number by 2; beta decay increases the atomic number by 1 (a neutron decays into a proton and electron); gamma rays are electromagnetic waves released from the nucleus along with either an alpha or beta particle.
.....Compare the processes of fission (splitting of a very large atom) and fusion (joining of atoms) in terms of conditions required for occurrence, energy released, and the nature of products.

..... Conceptually explain half-life using models.
..... Perform simple half-life calculations based on an isotope’s half-life value, time of decay, and/or amount of substance.
