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.
Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.
Apply scientific principles to design construct and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred the type of matter the mass and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.
Construct use and present arguments to support the claim that when the motion energy of an object changes energy is transferred to or from the object.
Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
Use mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.
Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected absorbed or transmitted through various materials.
Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals (sent as wave pulses) are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information.
