Plasma Gas Liquid Solid (Not)

So far, students have been shown that matter exists as plasma, gas, liquid, or solid. This topic begins to introduce some “not-so-cut-and-dry” categories of matter including non-classical states of matter, low-temperature states of matter, and high-energy states of matter. Students research, explore, and discuss matter which are not as easily categorized: glass, crystals with some degree of disorder, liquid crystal states, microphase-separated matter, magnetically ordered matter, degenerate matter, and superfluids.
