Ch 3: Glencoe Chemistry - Matter And Change Chapter 3: Matter - Properties and Changes

About This Chapter

The Matter - Properties and Changes chapter of this Glencoe Chemistry companion course helps students learn the essential chemistry lessons of matter's physical and chemical properties. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Matter - Properties and Changes textbook chapter.

How it works:

  • Identify the lessons in Glencoe Chemistry's Matter - Properties and Changes chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the chemical reaction and phase change topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, re-watch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • States of matter
  • Physical and chemical properties of matter
  • Physical versus chemical changes
  • Common chemical reactions
  • Differences between mixtures and solutions
  • Methods for separating mixtures
  • Elements, molecules and compounds
  • The law of multiple proportions

States of Matter: Solids, Liquids, Gases & Plasma

1. States of Matter: Solids, Liquids, Gases & Plasma

Learn the four states of matter in the universe: solid, liquid, gas and plasma. Learn about the differences in shape and volume among the four states, which of the states is the most common and why plasma conducts electricity.

Matter: Physical and Chemical Properties

2. Matter: Physical and Chemical Properties

How are substances identified? There are two major ways we can describe a substance: physical properties and chemical properties. Learn about how chemists use properties to classify matter as either a mixture or a pure substance.

States of Matter and Chemical Versus Physical Changes to Matter

3. States of Matter and Chemical Versus Physical Changes to Matter

The world around us is constantly changing. Chemists put those changes into two main categories: physical changes and chemical changes. This lesson will define and provide examples of each.

Common Chemical Reactions and Energy Change

4. Common Chemical Reactions and Energy Change

This lesson covers the five common types of chemical reactions: combination, decomposition, single-replacement, double-replacement, and combustion. You will learn how to predict what kind of chemical reaction will occur. You'll also explore how matter is conserved, but energy can change.

Creating Mixtures by Combining Elements & Compounds

5. Creating Mixtures by Combining Elements & Compounds

Do you really know what's in your tap water? It's not just water - it's a mixture of many different things. In fact, most things are mixtures of different elements and compounds that are physically joined together.

Creating Solutions by Combining Elements & Compounds

6. Creating Solutions by Combining Elements & Compounds

When elements and compounds physically combine, we get mixtures. But sometimes we can't tell just by looking at something that it's a mixture because the components are so well mixed. When this happens, we have solutions.

Chromatography, Distillation and Filtration: Methods of Separating Mixtures

7. Chromatography, Distillation and Filtration: Methods of Separating Mixtures

What are some ways that mixtures can be separated? Watch this video to explore several examples of ways you can separate a mixture into its individual components.

Understanding the Relationships between Elements, Molecules & Compounds

8. Understanding the Relationships between Elements, Molecules & Compounds

Everything on Earth is made of atoms, and sometimes they combine to form new groups of atoms. The sky is the limit when it comes to these combinations, which account for the vast number of things we find in our natural world.
