B.1.1: Matter is made of atoms and atoms are composed of even smaller components (i.e., protons, neutrons and electrons).
B.1.2: Atoms interact with one another by transferring or sharing outer electrons that are farthest from the nucleus. These outer electrons govern the chemical properties of the element.
B.1.3: An element is composed of a single type of atom. When elements are listed in order according to the number of protons, repeating patterns of physical and chemical properties identify families of elements with similar properties.
B.1.5: Solids, liquids, and gases differ in the energy that binds them together.
B.2.2: The rate of chemical reactions is affected by the concentration and temperature of the reacting materials. Catalysts accelerate chemical reactions.
B.2.3: Chemical substances react in definite molar weight proportions.
B.2.4: Mass is conserved in chemical reactions (balancing of equations).
