Kentucky Standards

KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1
SC-07-1.1. Structure and Transformation of Matter: During the middle years, physical and chemical changes in matter are observed, and students begin to relate these changes to the smaller constituents of matter - namely, atoms and molecules.
SC-07-1.1.2. Physical Science: Students will classify elements and compounds according to their properties; compare properties of different combinations of elements.
KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006
SC-7-STM. Big Idea: Structure and Transformation of Matter (Physical Science) - A basic understanding of matter is essential to the conceptual development of other big ideas in science. During the middle years, physical and chemical changes in matter are observed, and students begin to relate these changes to the smaller constituents of matter - namely, atoms and molecules. The use of models (and an understanding of their scales and limitations) is an effective means of learning about the structure of matter. Looking for patterns in properties is also critical to comparing and explaining differences in matter. (Academic Expectations 2.1, 2.2, 2.4, 2.5)
SC-7-STM-S-2. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will distinguish between elements and compounds and classify them according to their properties
SC-7-STM-U-2. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that there are only 92 naturally occurring elements and all matter is made of some combination of them (compounds).
SC-7-STM-U-3. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that elements, as well as compounds, can be classified according to their similar properties, including how they react with each other and how they may be used. The patterns, which allow classification, can be used to infer or understand real life applications for those substances.
