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.
MS-LS4-6 (0)
Education Level MS

Use mathematical representations to support explanations of how natural selection may lead to increases and decreases of specific traits in populations over time.

MS-PS1 (2)
Education Level MS

Matter and Its Interactions

MS-PS1-1 (1)
Education Level MS

Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.

MS-PS1-2 (1)
Education Level MS

Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.

MS-PS1-3 (1)
Education Level MS

Gather and make sense of information to describe that synthetic materials come from natural resources and impact society.

MS-PS1-4 (3)
Education Level MS

Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion temperature and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.

MS-PS1-5 (0)
Education Level MS

Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved.

MS-PS1-6 (0)
Education Level MS

Undertake a design project to construct test and modify a device that either releases or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes.*

MS-PS2 (0)
Education Level MS

Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

MS-PS2-1 (0)
Education Level MS

Apply Newton's Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.

MS-PS2-2 (1)
Education Level MS

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-PS2-3 (0)
Education Level MS

Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.

MS-PS2-4 (0)
Education Level MS

Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects.

MS-PS2-5 (0)
Education Level MS

Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.
