7. Quantum Theory (4 lessons)

Concepts The Bohr model is only an approximation of real electron behaviour.  Actually, electrons do not “orbit” the nucleus but exist in probability clouds at different energy levels. Unpaired electrons in atomic orbitals produce ferromagnetic behaviour. Skills Quiz 7a Determine the electron configuration of an atom in its ground state. Relate ground-state electron configurations to theContinue reading “7. Quantum Theory (4 lessons)”

3. Energy (13 lessons)

Concepts Energy is movement or the ability to produce movement. Energy can take many forms, but the forms we will focus on in this course are chemical potential energy (positional), thermal kinetic energy (heat), and electromagnetic energy (radiation). (First law of thermodynamics): in a closed system, no matter what processes occur, the total amount of energy will be conserved. KineticContinue reading “3. Energy (13 lessons)”

Yukon FN activism and the Umbrella Final Agreement (8 periods)

In the 1970s, Yukon First Nations leaders examined their peoples’ situation and decided to try to make things better. Through negotiations with the Canadian government and social development programs, they made many of the decisions and achieved many of the successes that have led to improved conditions for their descendents. Vocabulary words for this unit Orientation: midcenturyContinue reading “Yukon FN activism and the Umbrella Final Agreement (8 periods)”
