Transcript

  • 1. Minerals: Building Blocks of Rocks
    Honors Earth Science
    Hinsdale South High School
  • 2. Important Questions
    • How are minerals identified?
    • 3. How are rocks and minerals similar & how are they different?
    • 4. What are the major rock forming minerals?
    • 5. What defines a mineral resource?
    Basic knowledgeof Earth Materials is essential to the understanding of all Earth Science Phenomena
  • 6. Minerals vs. Rocks
    • Minerals – building blocks of rocks
    • 7. Rocks
    • 8. Multiple minerals are typical
    • 9. Occur as mixtures
    • 10. Some pure minerals are rocks (i.e. calcite {Limestone})
  • Mineral - Definition
    • Must naturally occur
    • 11. Must be inorganic (never alive)
    • 12. Must be a solid
    • 13. Must have a definite chemical structure
  • Composition & Structureof Minerals
    • 4 K minerals known
    • 14. Mineral is a unique substance
    • 15. defined by chemical composition
    • 16. Internal structure
    • 17. Questions
    • 18. What elements make up a mineral?
    • 19. What pattern exists when the elements bonded together?
    • 20. What properties are the result of this structure?
  • Atoms
  • Elements
    Periodic Table
    Patterns of chemical and physical properties
    Interactive Periodic Table (Los Alamos)
    Interactive Periodic Table (University of Sheffield, UK)
    Interactive Periodic Table (Flash version - downloadable Flashelements.zip) 
  • 29. Atomic Structure
  • 30. Compound
    Two or more elements
