IB MYP Year 4 Physical Science 2016/17


UNIT 2: ELEMENT INTERACTION
Key Concept: Form
Related Concept (s): Balance, Interaction
Global Context & (Exploration): Scientific and technical innovation (processes and solutions)

Statement of Inquiry (SOI): Knowing the form of matter helps to understand how they interact and
balance in processes to create solutions.

Factual Inquiry Question: Why would specific elements interact with each other?
Conceptual Inquiry Question: How can interactions be used to create solutions?
Debatable Inquiry Question: Does knowing form always help you to understand function?

ISPS Standards and Benchmarks

Standard 9 Students will understand how materials are chemically changed


Benchmarks By the end of Physical Science, students will understand:

that a large number of important reactions involve the transfer of either


electrons(oxidation/reduction reactions) or hydrogen ions (acid/base reactions)
between reacting ions, molecules, or atoms

Standard 10
Students will understand patterns of behavior
Benchmarks By the end of Physical Science, students will understand:
10-1

Know factors that influence reaction rates (e.g., types of substances involved,
temperature, concentration of reactant molecules, amount of contact between
reactant molecules)

RECIPE FOR THE KITCHEN CHEMISTRY CAKE EXPERIMENT


Youll need to measure and mix this set of ingredients four times to
complete all four experiments.

6 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 pinch of salt
2 or 3 pinches of baking powder
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons cooking oil
teaspoon vanilla
of an egg (Break egg into a cup; beat until mixed, then use
approximately one third of it. Save the rest for 2 of the other cakes.

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients in the order listed.
Mix well and pour into prepared dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20
minutes.
Prepare each cupcake holder by labeling them with a piece of tape and a
marker with numbers 1-4. Mix the batter for each cake individually so you
can leave out the proper ingredient each time for the experiment. Label
the first cake #1 and make it with all of the ingredients.
Then, go on to bake three more cakes, but with the following differences:
For cake # 2, leave the oil out.
For cake #3, leave the egg out.
For cake #4, leave the baking powder out.
After the cakes are cooled, remove them from the pans and cut them in
half. Observe the differences in size, texture, appearance, etc. They are
all edible, so you can taste each one and see which tastes the best.
Discuss why each cake is different and what the purpose is of each
ingredient in the cake.

EXPECTATIONS: A report to be handed up by Wednesday 16th November 2016 on


Google Classroom. Criterion Biii, Ci & Cii are being assessed as a formal formative
(i.e. the grade is recorded).

To attain full marks for objective Biii, you should include in your report
control variables (things you keep constant)
independent variable (what variable the experimenter is manipulating)
dependent variable (what variable is being measured)
a step by step method written in the past tense in the passive voice.

To attain full marks for objective C i & ii, you should include in your report
all data collected in a neat format under the title RESULTS. Use of tables,
graphs, photos, and observations should be included.
In a section labelled DISCUSSION you should compare all the cupcakes
and using your research skills propose explanations as to why such
observations were made.
Any improvements which could be made if this experiment was repeated.
