360Science™: Evaluate Atomic Spectra
Concepts: Wave-particle duality of light, photoelectric effect, photons, atomic spectra
Outcomes: Students make connections about the electrons in different substances when photons are emitted by viewing the substance with the diffraction grating and spectroscope. Each elemental gas in the spectrum tubes has a unique emission spectra, essentially a unique fingerprint that identifies the element. Completed data tables allow students to record their observations and compare and contrast the various colors of the emission lines and their wavelengths. The use of the spectroscope allows the students to quantify and assign a wavelength value to each emission line. Students are amazed to learn that various light sources around us are made up of materials found in the periodic table, and are further amazed when they relate their findings to atomic structure!
Associated Phenomena:What causes the colors in a fireworks display?
Our 1-year option provides access to all digital content for one year plus lab supplies for a single class of 30 students. Our 3-year option extends access to digital content to three years, with a 30% discount on refill supply kits years 2 and 3.
What is Flinn 360Science™?
We’re introducing a whole new way to teach experiential science! We’ve taken a hard look at science study from all perspectives and, thanks to the feedback of thousands of teachers nationwide, we’ve created a way to make it easier to provide personalized instruction while delivering the kind of lab experiences your students truly need.
Our new and comprehensive learning solutions are designed to bring science to life by giving you all the tools you need to incorporate more (and effective) hands-on learning in your classroom or lab. 360Science allows you to provide your students with the support they need to make real-world connections to key scientific principles and help make those abstract concepts concrete.
Every 360Science lab solves the most common challenges educators face in bringing more hands-on science to their students—from not having enough time to matching the right level of challenge for students’ abilities to providing appropriate background content, safety techniques, assessments and more.
Enable student-driven, blended learning through a unique combination of leveled lab instructions supporting prescriptive, guided- and open-inquiry lab exercises (see PDF resource for specific details) with robust digital content, such as videos and carefully curated Open Educational Resources (OER)—along with virtual reality and simulation exercises. From editable, digital instructions to assessments and alignment with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), we have everything you need to improve mastery, remove the intimidation factor and foster your students’ natural curiosity.
HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
