This unit covers many of the outcomes in the Solomon Islands Year 8/Form 2 Science Learning Outcomes for Unit 9.3 Materials
|General Learning Outcomes||Specific Learning Outcomes|
|9.3.1 know that metals, semi-metals and non-metals have their unique properties (k)||188.8.131.52 identify the different properties of metals: hardness, malleability, ductility, density and conductivity
184.108.40.206 identify properties of Non-metals as: poor conductor, dull, brittle, low melting and boiling point.
220.127.116.11 state that semi-metals have both metallic and non-metallic properties
|9.3.2 be able to show that the corrosion of metals is caused by environmental factors (s)||18.104.22.168 demonstrate the corrosion process using iron nails in conditions e.g.
i. iron nail in water
ii. iron nail in oil
iii. iron nail in air
|9.3.3 be able to show rates of reaction between dilute acids (s)||22.214.171.124 perform reaction between metals and dilute acids and compare the rate of reactions.
metal: Na, Mg, Al, Ca, Fe and Zn
dilute acids: Hydrochloric acid, Sulfuric acid and Nitric acid.
Use any acid that is available
|9.3.4 know the different uses of alloys in the community (k)||126.96.36.199 identify different types
of alloy materials found around
the school and community and state:
i. what metals they made of
ii. uses of the alloys
