Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Standards: Science

The science standards include both NGSS and Michigan Science Standards.
HS-PS3-3 (0)
Education Level HS

Design build and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

HS-PS3-4 (0)
Education Level HS

Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (second law of thermodynamics).

HS-PS3-5 (0)
Education Level HS

Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.

HS-PS4 (0)
Education Level HS

Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer

HS-PS4-1 (0)
Education Level HS

Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency wavelength and speed of waves traveling in various media.

HS-PS4-2 (0)
Education Level HS

Evaluate questions about the advantages of using a digital transmission and storage of information.

HS-PS4-3 (0)
Education Level HS

Evaluate the claims evidence and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described either by a wave model or a particle model and that for some situations one model is more useful than the other.

HS-PS4-4 (0)
Education Level HS

Evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.

HS-PS4-5 (0)
Education Level HS

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.

K-2-ETS1 (0)
Education Level K-2

Engineering Design

K-2-ETS1-1 (5)
Education Level K-2

Ask questions make observations and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

K-2-ETS1-2 (6)
Education Level K-2

Develop a simple sketch drawing or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.

K-2-ETS1-3 (4)
Education Level K-2

Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.

K-ESS2 (0)
Education Level K

Earth's Systems

K-ESS2-1 (2)
Education Level K

Use and share observations of local weather conditions to describe patterns over time.
