Ch 59: MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Thermodynamics in Chemistry

Get set for the MTEL Middle School Math/Science exam. Prepare to be energized as you explore the concepts of thermodynamics in chemistry. The lessons in this chapter will show you how energy is produced, used, and measured in chemical reactions.

MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Thermodynamics in Chemistry - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you'll explore many of the ways energy is involved in chemical equations. Before taking the exam, learn how heat is measured and bonds broken. You can also discover how elements change states. Lessons will cover topics that include:

• Thermodynamics and applicable laws
• The usefulness of state functions
• Enthalpy and the relationship between energy and chemistry
• Breaking and forming chemical bonds
• Hess's Law and heat transfer
• Calorimetry and heat capabilities

The videos found throughout this chapter will help you prepare for the chemistry questions found on the MTEL Middle School Math/Science exam. From heat transfer to state changes, you'll understand the relationship between energy and chemistry - and most importantly, you'll get valuable tips on how to avoid blowing up yourself and the lab as you watch the lesson on Hess's Law! Use the short quizzes at the end of each lesson to evaluate your progress. But remember, no calculators are allowed on the test, so start practicing now, and keep that pencil and paper handy!

MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Thermodynamics in Chemistry Objectives

A broad knowledge of math and science principles is required to successfully pass the MTEL Middle School Math/Science exam. The material presented in this chapter on thermodynamics helps prepare you for the Chemistry section (subarea VII) of the exam. Chemistry topics makes up approximately 8% of the multiple-choice question content and could possibly be the topic for the open-response science question. The self-assessment quizzes found at the end of each lesson provide an ideal way to review information and practice calculations as you study for this exam.

The MTEL Middle School Math/Science test is computer-based and includes 100 multiple-choice questions that make up 80% of your total score. There is also a written portion comprised of two open-response questions, one from the science material and one from the mathematics material. Each of these two questions is worth 10% of your total score. You will have 4 hours to complete your work.
