Section 25.1 Nuclear Radiation
Standard 11 c  Nuclear Processes
View Standard 11 State Standard: Many naturally occurring isotopes of elements are radioactive, as are isotopes formed in nuclear reactions.
Students Will be able to:Define radioactivity and radioactive isotopes. Book Reference Pages: 807
Standard 11 d  Nuclear Processes
View Standard 11 State Standard: The three most common forms of radioactive decay (alpha, beta, gamma) and how the nucleus changes in each type of decay.
Students Will be able to:Define and classify each type of radioactive decay. Book Reference Pages: 807, 809
Standard 11 e  Nuclear Processes
View Standard 11 State Standard: Alpha, beta, and gamma radiation produce different amounts and kinds of damage in mater and have different penetrations.
Students Will be able to:Compare the damage and penetration of the three types of radioactive decay. I&E (12E): Solve scientific problems using quadratic equations, and simple trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Book Reference Pages: 808, 809
Standard 12 k  Investigation and Experimentation
View Standard 12 State Standard: Recognize the cumulative nature of scientific evidence.
Students Will be able to:Book Reference Pages: 806


Section 25.2 Radioactive Decay
Standard 11 a  Nuclear Processes
View Standard 11 State Standard: Protons and neutrons in the nucleus are held together by strong nuclear forces which are stronger than the electromagnet repulsion between the protons.
Students Will be able to:Compare and contrast the electrostatic force to the nuclear force. Book Reference Pages: 810, 814
Standard 11 c  Nuclear Processes
View Standard 11 State Standard: Many naturally occurring isotopes of elements are radioactive, as are isotopes formed in nuclear reactions.
Students Will be able to:Define radioactivity and radioactive isotopes. Book Reference Pages: 810, 811, 814
Standard 11 d  Nuclear Processes
View Standard 11 State Standard: The three most common forms of radioactive decay (alpha, beta, gamma) and how the nucleus changes in each type of decay.
Students Will be able to:Define and classify each type of radioactive decay. Book Reference Pages: 813, 814


Section 25.3 Transmutation

Section 25.4 Fission and Fusion of Atomic Nuclear Reactions
Standard 11 b  Nuclear Processes
View Standard 11 State Standard: The energy release per gram of material is much larger in nuclear fusion or fission reactions than in chemicals reactions: change in mass (calculated by E=mc2) is small but significant in nuclear reactions.
Students Will be able to:Compare the amount of energy involved in a nuclear reaction to that of a chemical reaction, using E=mc2 Book Reference Pages: 821, 823, 826
Standard 12 i  Investigation and Experimentation
View Standard 12 State Standard:
Students Will be able to:Book Reference Pages: 821
Standard 12 m  Investigation and Experimentation
View Standard 12 State Standard: Investigate a sciencebased societal issue by researching the literature, analyzing data and communicating the finding. Examples include irradiation of food, cloning of animals by somatic cell nuclear transfer, choice of energy sources, and land and water use decisions in California.
Students Will be able to:Book Reference Pages: 825


Section 25.5 Applications and Effects of Nuclear Reactions
Standard 11 e  Nuclear Processes
