SCH4U - Unit 1: Structure and Properties


Objectives


Big Ideas:
  • The nature of the attractive forces that exist between particles in a substance determines the properties and limits the uses of that substance.
  • Technological devices that are based on the principles of atomic and molecular structures can have societal benefits and costs.

Overall Expectations

  • assess the benefits to society and evaluate the environmental impact of products and technologies that apply principles related to the structure and properties of matter
  • investigate the molecular shapes and physical properties of various types of matter
  • demonstrate an understanding of atomic structure and chemical bonding, and how they relate to the physical properties of ionic, molecular, covalent network, and metallic substances.
