– Nature and properties of Salt
– Law of conservation of mass
– Preparation of soluble and insoluble salts
– Analysis of salts
– Hard water and its implications
– Mole concept
– Cleaning products – structure of molecules and their efficiency
– Titration of solutions with various molar concentrations
Objective A :
i. explain scientific knowledge
ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to solve problems set in familiar and unfamiliar situations
iii. analyse and evaluate information to make scientifically supported judgments.

Objective B :
i. explain a problem or question to be tested by a scientific investigation
ii. formulate a testable hypothesis and explain it using scientific reasoning
iii. explain how to manipulate the variables, and explain how data will be collected
iv. design scientific investigations.

Objective C :

Important Announcement for Grade 8 – Unit 3- Integrated science

Important Announcement for Grade 8 – Unit 3- Integrated science

From tomorrow 21/8/18, cycle 9- D1, we are starting with Unit 3 of Integrated science for which you are required to keep following resources ready for every IS slot:

  • Lab coats
  • Full pants
  • Black school shoes (even if it rains bring in polythene and keep it in your locker)
  • Science Journal
  • Science notebook
  • Stationery/Writing material

Make sure that you keep these resources in your lockers

Consequence: In case you are not there with the mentioned resources, you will miss the lab activity and will have to go to the PO’s desk and complete the assigned task.
