Learning Targets Atomic
1. I can explain the progression of the atomic theory from the cannonball theory to the wave-mechanical (electron cloud) theory.
2. I can use Rutherford’s experiment to explain that an atom is made of mostly empty space and had a dense positively charged nucleus.
3. I can identify the three subatomic particles and differentiate between their locations, masses and charges.
4. I can draw Bohr models for elements in the ground state.
5. I can use the atomic number to identify the number of protons in the nucleus.
6. I can use the mass number and atomic number to determine the number of neutrons and explain what isotopes are.
7. I can calculate the average atomic mass of an atom using its naturally occurring isotopes and their natural abundances.
8. I can compare the energy of electrons based on which shell they are in knowing that as the shell number increases so does the energy level.
9. I can differentiate between electron configurations of an atom for the ground state and the excited state.
10. I can explain the Bright Line Spectrum as the energy released as electrons return to the ground state from the excited state.
11. I can identify elements based on their bright line spectrum which is unique.
