Gas Laws

The NGSS describe gases and the intermolecular interactions that govern the behavior of gases. The NGSS build the foundation for the discussion of different states of matter in middle school, and then build the foundation for mathematical representations of gas laws through a thorough coverage of intermolecular forces and energy in the high school standards.
