Matzuga, Ronald J.
This is an experimental course of study designed to introduce the junior high school student to the field of chemistry through his knowledge and understanding of chemical reactions which take place in his world. The everday experiences which the student encounters show the classification, phases, and changes of matter. No prerequisite courses are suggested for this study of the World of Matter. Several state-adopted texts are listed, including those of physical science, general science, chemistry and the nature of matter. Six performance objectives are suggested based on a course outline divided into six major topics: (1) Matter; (2) States of Matter; (3) Changes in Matter; (4) Classification of Matter; (5) Observation of Chemical Reactions; and (6) Practical Use of Chemistry. Student-involved activities include experiments (drawn from several different sources), and viewing of films. A list of 16 reference books is included. A master sheet organizes the laboratory experiments, the student texts, the supplementary references and films and/or transparencies to be used with each of the major concepts to be presented.
