• K. Forces and Interactions: Pushes and Pulls
    • K-PS2-1.               Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
  • 1. Waves: Light and Sound
    • 1-PS4-1.               Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.
    • 1-PS4-4.               Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance.
  • 4. Waves
    • 4-PS4-1.               Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.
    • 4-PS4-3.               Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.
  • 4. Energy
    • 4-PS3-2.
    • Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
    • 4-PS3-4. Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
  • MS. Energy
    • MS-PS3-1.           Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object.
    • MS-PS3-5.           Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
  • MS. Forces and Interactions
    • MS-PS2-2.           Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
  • MS.Waves and Electromagnetic Radiation
    • MS-PS4-2.           Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
    • MS-PS4-3.           Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals.
  • HS.Waves and Electromagnetic Radiation
    • HS-PS4-2.            Evaluate questions about the advantages of using a digital transmission and storage of information.
    • HS-PS4-5.            Communicate technical information about how some technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and energy.
