Requirements

Construct a model of chemical reactions involving energy and electrostatic interactions. Learn that a chemical reaction is a process that involves the atoms of substances rearranging to form new substances and that to start any chemical reaction, energy is needed to break bonds in the reactants. Compare reactions and changes in energy. Develop several models to describe observations of reactions. This investigation builds toward NGSS PEs: HS-PS1-4, HS-PS1-5 and HS-PS3-2.
