PS2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

PS2.B: Types of Interaction

PS2.B.2: Predict how changes in either the amount of force applied to an object or the mass of the object affects the motion (speed and direction) of the object.

Force and Fan Carts

PS3: Energy

PS3.A: Definitions of Energy

PS3.A.1: Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

Sled Wars

PS3.B: Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer

PS3.B.2: Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

PS4: Waves and Their Applications in technologies for Information Transfer

PS4.A: Wave Properties

PS4.A.1: Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude or wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move. (Boundary: The terms amplitude and wavelength should not be assessed.)


LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes

LS1.A: Structure and Function

ETS1: Engineering Design

ETS1.A: Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems

ETS1.A.1: Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.

Digestive System

ETS1.B: Developing Possible Solutions

ETS1.B.1: Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

Digestive System
