Washington DC Standards

DC.C.4. Chemistry: The Atom: Broad Concept: An atom is a discrete unit. The atomic model can help us to understand the interaction of elements and compounds observed on a macroscopic scale. As a basis for understanding this concept, students:
C.4.5. Construct a diagram and describe the number and arrangement of subatomic particles within an atom or ion.
DC.C.6. Chemistry: Nuclear Processes: Broad Concept: Nuclear processes are those in which an atomic nucleus changes; they include radioactive decay of naturally occurring and man-made isotopes and nuclear fission and fusion processes. As a basis for understanding this concept, students:
C.6.3. Know many naturally occurring isotopes of elements are radioactive, as are isotopes formed in nuclear reactions.
DC.P.8. Physics: Nuclear Processes: Broad Concept: Nuclear processes are those in which an atomic nucleus changes; they include radioactive decay of naturally occurring and man-made isotopes and nuclear fission and fusion processes. As a basis for understanding this concept, students:
P.8.2. Recognize that the nucleus, although it contains nearly all of the mass of the atom, occupies less of the atom than the proportion of the solar system occupied by the sun.
P.8.3. Explain how the mass of a neutron or a proton is about 2,000 times greater than the mass of an electron.
