Project: Exploring the Shape of Molecules


Emerging (Below standards) Major misconceptions or errors in model or no model present (list here):

Proficient (Meets standards) Final Product Includes: An accurate model of your version of an amino acid that contains:

Advanced (Exceeds standards) In addition to meeting the Proficient criteria: Information in Proficient column is obviously clearly articulated and goes beyond superficial statements of fact, including:

Content Standards:
Use force and energy ideas to construct an explanation on how atoms form bonds as well as how molecules take shape in 3D space Construct electron-dot formulas to illustrate covalent or ionic bonds Predict molecular structure for molecules with various molecular geometry using VSEPR theory Predict the behavior of molecules based on their molecular geometry and structure Analyzes geometric relationships in order to make conjectures about angles and three-dimensional figures Use 1D/2D coordinate systems to represent points, lines, rays, line segments, and figures Formulate and test conjectures about the properties of parallel and perpendicular lines, as well as circles based on explorations and [concrete] models. Use properties of transformations and their compositions to make connections between mathematics and the real world Make measurements and specify tolerances with minimum precision and accuracy Participate in a real or simulated engineering project Develop a plan and timeline for completion of a project Work in teams and share responsibilities, acknowledging, encouraging and valuing contributions of all team members Compare and contrast the variety of roles of a team and each roles responsibilities Defend a design solution in a presentation

a complete version of an amino acid, with all four parts (R-group,

C-end, N-end, H)

all atoms are clearly labeled and can be distinguished from one
another in regards to size and scale

all angles between atoms are represented appropriately, indicating

precise and accurate measurements were made

A second model that you

can use to accurately show interactions between molecules (both models)

all bonds are represented accurately in terms of strength (length of

bonds, distance b/w atoms) Presentation contains multiple misconceptions or errors present (list here): A presentation poster/sheet/powerpoint/other approved visual format that answers the DQ and includes the following:

Model shows elaborate

detail and is marketable.

uses the ideas of force and energy as the central mechanism for
bonding and molecular geometry

Model can be easily

manipulated and/or put together/taken apart for easy storage

discusses how forces drive molecules to utilize 3-D space in order

to maximize stability, with supporting arguments using both chemistry and geometry arguments (including but not limited to: angles, properties of particular types of bonds, scale (size and distance) and individual properties of elements) including a discussion on solubility and phase change

Presentation is primarily
a demonstration and mock lesson multiple revisions and edits, based on previous instructor and peer feedback + selfreflection In addition to the above bullets, what other ideas for Advanced do you have? Remember to get these PREAPPROVED BEFORE you put work into it.

elaborates on how their amino acid interacts with other molecules, Model demonstrates
Multiple proficient standards are incorrect or missing (list here):

incorporates a graphic organizer that others can use to predict

molecular structure for molecules with various molecular geometry using VSEPR theory.

2-D Lewis-Dot Structures for their model discusses the advantages and limitations of their design product a persuasive argument/defense for their model and how it can be
used as a teaching tool in a classroom (this can also be a verbal piece w/ visual demonstration)

In addition to the Proficient criteria:

Communication/Presentation1 Organizes ideas and develops content appropriate to audiences and situations Uses effective oral presentation skills Creates media/visual aides that enhance content delivery Gauges audience reaction and/or understanding and adjusts presentation appropriately Responds to questions appropriately

does not look at

audience, reads notes or slides

have a confident posture keeps eye contact with audience most of the time; only reads notes
or slides sometimes

uses gestures

posture does not

show confidence (fidgets, slouches)

speak clearly and loudly meets all requirements for what should be included; selects the
right amount and kind of information to present

moves with purpose adds variety to speaking

style (lower/higher vol, change of pace, character voices)

mumbles or goes
too slow/fast

connects ideas within presentation time is well spent; no part feels too short or too long uses and includes aids appropriately Answers audiences questions clearly and completely;
acknowledges when a question cant be answered by saying I dont know OR explains how the answer could be found

ideas are mixed

up or not present

effectively uses humor,

stories or metaphors

time is not well

spent some parts too long or short

aids are especially

creative and/or powerful

aids are
distracting or not present appropriately

answers questions in a
way that adds details, examples, or new points to the presentation and/or smoothly handles questions that are unclear, off the topic, distracting, or challenging

Does not address

audiences questions or may try to answer a challenging question by faking it
