CIMV: Chemistry: Interactions of Common Materials

CIMV.01: understand how chemicals in common household and workplace materials interact;

2.1.1: Understanding Basic Concepts

CIM1.03: distinguish between chemical reactions (e.g., burning paper, reacting metals with acids) and physical processes (e.g., crumpling paper, making and diluting solutions), using appropriate scientific terminology (e.g., reactants, products, change of state, concentration, solute, solvent);

Chemical Changes

CIM1.04: identify the factors that alter the rate of physical processes and chemical reactions (e.g., temperature, surface area, concentration, presence of a catalyst/inhibitor).

Collision Theory

CIMV.02: investigate the types and rates of interactions between commonly used materials through laboratory activities;
