UT.CC.RST.6-8. Reading Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects
Craft and Structure
RST.6-8.4. Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics.
UT.I. Students will understand the nature of changes in matter.
I.2. Observe and evaluate evidence of chemical and physical change.
I.2.b. Identify observable evidence of a chemical change (e.g., color change, heat or light given off, change in odor, gas given off).
I.3. Investigate and measure the effects of increasing or decreasing the amount of energy in a physical or chemical change, and relate the kind of energy added to the motion of the particles.
I.3.a. Identify the kinds of energy (e.g., heat, light, sound) given off or taken in when a substance undergoes a chemical or physical change.
I.3.d. Cite evidence showing that heat may be given off or taken in during a chemical change (e.g., striking a match, mixing vinegar and antacid, mixing ammonium chloride and water).
I.3.e. Plan and conduct an experiment, and report the effect of adding or removing energy on the chemical and physical changes.
I.4. Identify the observable features of chemical reactions.
I.4.a. Identify the reactants and products in a given chemical change and describe the presence of the same atoms in both the reactants and products.
I.4.b. Cite examples of common significant chemical reactions (e.g., photosynthesis, respiration, combustion, rusting) in daily life.
I.4.d. Experiment with variables affecting the relative rates of chemical changes (e.g., heating, cooling, stirring, crushing, concentration).
