Instructional Segment 1 (IS-1)
What is energy, how is it measured, and how does it flow within a system?
What mechanisms allow us to utilize the energy of our foods and fuels?
Instructional Segment 1: Combustion
In this brief introductory unit, students investigate the amount of stored chemical potential energy in food. They make observations of material properties at the bulk scale that they will later explain in the atomic scale. The themes of combustion and CO2 tie together several of the Instructional Segments.

Dimensional Analysis 1 hour Tutorial
WHAT ARE THE 7 DIATOMIC MOLECULES????
WHAT IS ENERGY?
November: The Electromagnetic Spectrum
What is ROYGBIV?
What has more energy? Gamma Rays or Radio Waves?
Which waves are longer? Xrays or Infrared?
TELL ME WHY Visible Electromagnetic Spectrum is NOT the same as the Atomic Emission Spectrum...
YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW HIGH FREQUENCY COMPARES TO LOW FREQUENCY!!!
