INTRODUCTION This Handbook aims to provide the general public – parents, students, researchers, and other stakeholders– an overview of the Mathematics program at the secondary level. Those in education, however, may use it as areference for implementing the 2002 secondary education curriculum, or as a source document to inform policyand guide practice. For quick reference, the Handbook is outlined as follows: • The description defines the focus and the emphasis of the learning area as well as the language of instruction used. • The unit credit indicates the number of units assigned to a learning area computed on a 40-minute per unit credit basis and which shall be used to evaluate a student’s promotion to the next year level. • The time allotment specifies the number of minutes allocated to a learning area on a daily (or weekly, as the case may be) basis. • The expectancies refer to the general competencies that the learners are expected to demonstrate at the end of each year level. • The scope and sequence outlines the content, or the coverage of the learning area in terms of concepts or themes, as the case may be. • The suggested strategies are those that are typically employed to develop the content, build skills, and integrate learning. • The materials include those that have been approved for classroom use. The application of information and communication technology is encouraged, where available. • The grading system specifies how learning outcomes shall be evaluated and the aspects of student performance which shall be rated. • The learning competencies are the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that the students are expected to develop or acquire during the teaching-learning situations. • Lastly, sample lesson plans are provided to illustrate the mode of integration, where appropriate, the application of life skills and higher order thinking skills, the valuing process and the differentiated activities to address the learning needs of students.
The Handbook is designed as a practical guide and is not intended to structure the operationalization of thecurriculum or impose restrictions on how the curriculum shall be implemented. Decisions on how best to teachand how learning outcomes can be achieved most successfully rest with the school principals and teachers. Theyknow the direction they need to take and how best to get there.

Topic Factors Affecting Rates of Chemical Reactions B. References Chemistry by Merrill pp. 448-452 Chemistry by Addison Wesley pp. 492-494III. Learning Tasks a. Recall We learned from the past lesson that chemical system a chemical system either release or absorb energy. When do we say energy is released/absorbed in a chemical system? b. Motivation How fast can a reaction go? We say some are very fast, others are very slow. There are many reasons that may affect rates of reaction. Can you name some? C. Lesson Proper 1. Activity 1.1 Effect of temperature Measure two 1 – gram sample of rock salt. Put each gram separately in small beaker. Pour 10 mL of tap water in one beaker and add 10 mL of hot water in the other. Observe the time it takes to dissolve each sample of salt. 1.2 Effect of Particle size Measure one gram of rock salt. Put this on a small beaker. Measure one gram of granulated salt. Put this also in another small beaker. Pour 10 mL of tap water into each beaker. Compare the rate of dissolving of solids in the beaker.
1.3 Effect of concentration Measure 10 mL of 3 M HCl and put this into a small beaker. Measure the same amount of 6 M HCl and put it in a different beaker. Measure 2 inches of Mg ribbon and roll this to make it compact. Add the 2 inch rolled Mg ribbon into each of the beakers simultaneously. Observe the reaction. 1.4 Effect of catalyst (DEMO only) Measure 20 mL of Hydrogen Peroxide. Put this in a small beaker. Put a very small amount of Manganese dioxide in a spatula. Using a spoon with a long handle, (deflagrating spoon) drop the Mg ribbon to the beaker with Hydrogen Peroxide. Observe how fast the reaction occurs. Caution: Use goggles. Move as far back as possible from the reaction set up before mixing the reactants. 1.5 Nature of Reactants Get 0.5 grams of NaCl. Stir this in a small beaker with 20 mL of water. Get another 0.5 grams of the salt and stir this in 20 mL of Ethyl Alcohol. Compare the results.2. Post lab activity Reaction rate is defined in terms of the disappearance of one of the reactants or it may be defined as the rate of appearance of one of the products. In our activity, we have observed that rate of reactions vary. Let us discuss the various factors 2.1 Effect of temperature According to the Kinetic Molecular Theory, the kinetic energy of molecules increases as the temperature increases. Increased kinetic energy increases the speed of particles, thus increased molecular collision takes place. Increased molecular action results in increased molecular activation energy, thus lowering activation energy level. 2.2 Effect particle size Smaller particles are more reactive. They are more energetic. Small particles have greater surface area exposed to reaction, thus increasing the frequency at which particles collide. 2.3 Effect of concentration The greater the number of reacting substances increases the rate of reaction. Crowded particles in a fixed volume increase the frequency of collision. 2.4 Effect of catalyst A catalyst is a substance that increases the rate of reaction without itself being
used in the process. Catalysts act in one or more steps of reactions by lowering the reaction energy level. With lower activation energy level more collision will have sufficient energy to pass over the energy barrier. Thus, greater fraction of collision is effective at any given point. 2.5 Nature of reactant Ionic reactions occur almost instaneously. NaCl is highly soluble in another polar substance like water. This system demonstrate the “like dissolves like” reaction. In this system the oppositely charge collide, more often, thus causing effective reaction. 3. Generalization There are 5 general factors affecting the rate of reaction; temperature, concentration, particles size, potency of catalyst and nature reactants. The rate of reaction depends upon the rate of effective collision, which are dependent upon the energy reactant particles and the barriers of the reaction. Therefore, reactions rate is made faster by: increasing temperature, increasing concentration, reducing the number of reactants or of similar nature e.g. polar to polar or non-polar to non-polar. 4. Valuing/Application All of us have goals in life. We would wish to achieve these goals as best we can and at the soonest. To be successful, we look for ways we can overcome possible obstacle. Sometimes, we need the influences of other people. When we do ask for other peoples help, we see to it that they understand our situation in life. 5. Evaluation 1. How are each of the following concepts relate with the rate of reaction? a. frequency of collisions b. kinetic energy of collisions c. orientation of colliding particles 2. How is the activation energy affected by the presence of catalystIV. Agreement In the past lessons, we determined the various factors that effect reaction rates. In our next lesson, we shall try see how these learning’s are applied in common things we do in life. For example: 1. How do we preserve or prolong the life of food? 2. What happens during digestion?

1. Pre lab Activity: Learning Stations Station 1: Arrange the set-up for sublimation process and explain how it occurs according to KMT. Station 2: Assuming that each circle is a molecule of water, arrange them to illustrate freezing of water. Be able to explain how water freezes according to KMT. Station 3: Assuming that the big square is a block of ice, illustrate and explain the melting process according to KMT. Station 4: Arrange the set-up for boiling process and explain how boiling occurs according to KMT. Station 5: a.) Pour 10 ml of alcohol on your hand and observe what happens. b) Arrange the evaporation set-up and apply heat to 15 ml of water. c.) Explain how evaporation occurs according to KMT. Station 6: a.) Place chunks of ice in a drinking glass. Observe what happens after 10 to 15 minutes. b.) Be able to explain this phenomenon according to KMT. 2. Post lab Activity: Brainstorming among group members follows after the activity. After 15 minutes, a representative from each group explains in front of the class the results of the activity performed in each station.2. Technological Applications:
Phase Changes in Refrigeration Cycle Science Concepts Technology Concepts• Evaporation is the process of changing w The liquid refrigerant circulates inside a liquid into gas by increasing the the refrigerator absorbing heat from the temperature. foods, drinks, and air inside it.• The molecules of liquids with higher w The evaporator increases the temperature energies evaporate first leaving behind of the refrigerant thus converting it into those molecules with lower energies. its gaseous phase.w The pressure of a gas is directly • Temperature and pressure increase inside proportional to its temperature. the compressor.w Condensation is the process of changing a w The condenser changes the vaporized gas to liquid. refrigerant into its liquid phase by removing heat from it and releasing suchw Removing heat from a sample slows down heat outside the refrigerator. the movement of the molecules.w Lowering the temperature of a liquid slows After the liquid refrigerant passes through the down the movement of the molecules thus expansion valve, the pressure decreases with decreasing the pressure simultaneously decrease in temperature 3. Generalization: a. According to the Kinetic Molecular Theory of Matter, the phase of a given sample of matter is determined by existing temperature and pressure. b. Refrigeration cycle is a continuous change of phase/ state, temperature, and pressure inside the major components of the refrigerator. 4. Valuing: Phase changes continuously occur in the environment. The water cycle consists of phase changes like evaporation that helps in maintaining a fairly comfortable temperature range in the atmosphere and condensation, which produces rain that washes the atmosphere of gaseous pollutants. Life sprouts from the interaction of the soil, air, and water in the environment.
