CHE.3: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the periodic table as a systematic representation to predict properties of elements.
CHE.3.1: Explore and communicate the organization of the periodic table, including history, groups, families, family names, metals, nonmetals, metalloids, and transition metals.
CHE.3.2: Analyze properties of atoms and ions (e.g., metal/nonmetal/metalloid behavior, electrical/heat conductivity, electronegativity and electron affinity, ionization energy, and atomic/ionic radii) using periodic trends of elements based on the periodic table.
CHE.4: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the types of bonds and resulting atomic structures for the classification of chemical compounds.
CHE.4.1: Develop and use models (e.g., Lewis dot, 3-D ball-stick, 3-D printing, or simulation programs such as PhET) to predict the type of bonding between atoms and the shape of simple compounds.
CHE.4.2: Use models such as Lewis structures and ball and stick models to depict the valence electrons and their role in the formation of ionic and covalent bonds.
CHE.4.3: Predict the ionic or covalent nature of different atoms based on electronegativity trends and/or position on the periodic table.
CHE.4.4: Use models and oxidation numbers to predict the type of bond, shape of the compound, and the polarity of the compound.
CHE.6: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the types, causes, and effects of chemical reactions.
CHE.6.1: Develop and use models to predict the products of chemical reactions (e.g., synthesis reactions; single replacement; double displacement; and decomposition, including exceptions such as decomposition of hydroxides, chlorates, carbonates, and acids). Discuss and/or compile lists of reactions used in everyday life.
CHE.6.2: Plan, conduct, and communicate the results of investigations to demonstrate different types of simple chemical reactions.
CHE.6.3: Use mathematics and computational analysis to represent the ratio of reactants and products in terms of masses, molecules, and moles (stoichiometry).
CHE.6.4: Use mathematics and computational analysis to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction. Give real-world examples (e.g., burning wood).
CHE.6.5: Plan and conduct a controlled scientific investigation to produce mathematical evidence that mass is conserved. Use percent error to analyze the accuracy of results.
CHE.6.6: Use mathematics and computational analysis to support the concept of percent yield and limiting reagent.
CHE.7: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the structure and behavior of gases.
CHE.7.2: Use an engineering design process to develop models (e.g., online simulations or student interactive activities) to explain and predict the behavior of each state of matter using the movement of particles and intermolecular forces to explain the behavior of matter.
CHE.7.4: Use mathematical computations to describe the relationships comparing pressure, temperature, volume, and number of particles, including Boyle’s law, Charles’s law, Dalton’s law, combined gas laws, and ideal gas laws.
CHE.9.2: Analyze and interpret data to identify differences between strong and weak acids and bases (i.e., dissociation).
CHE.9.4: Analyze and evaluate the Arrhenius, Bronsted-Lowry, and Lewis acid-base definitions.

CHE.11.2: Predict when equilibrium is established in a chemical reaction.
CHE.11.3: Use mathematical and computational thinking to calculate an equilibrium constant expression for a reaction.
