• Students will distinguish between acid and base behavior in numerous chemical processes, including REDOX reactions. (1.8)

* Math Skills include the following expectations and applications:

•Construct and use tables and graphs to interpret data sets.

•Solve simple algebraic expressions.

•Perform basic statistical procedures to analyze the center and spread of data.

•Measure with accuracy and precision (length, volume, mass, temperature,

time, etc.)

•Convert within a unit (such as centimeters to meters).

•Use common prefixes such as milli-, centi-, kilo-.

•Use scientific notation, where appropriate.

•Use ratio and proportion in the solution of problems.
