1st & 2nd 9 Weeks:
6A. Examine differences in physical properties of solids, liquids, and gases as explained by the arrangement and motion of atoms or molecules
I.6D: Relate the placement of an element on the Periodic Table to its physical and chemical behavior, including bonding and classification.
I.7E: Describe types of nuclear reactions such as fission and fusion and their roles in applications such as medicine and energy production.
I.6F: Investigate the properties of water solutions and factors affecting solid solubility, including nature of solute, temperature, and concentration.
I.7F: Research and describe the environmental and economic impact of the end-products of chemical reactions such as those that may result in acid rain, degradation of water and air quality, and ozone depletion.
I.4B: Measure and graph distance and speed as a function of time.
I.4F: Describe the gravitational attraction between objects of different masses at different distances.
I.5B: Recognize and demonstrate common forms of potential energy, including gravitational, elastic, and chemical, such as a ball on an inclined plane, springs, and batteries.
I.5D: Investigate the law of conservation of energy.
I.5G: Explore the characteristics and behaviors of energy transferred by waves, including acoustic, seismic, light, and waves on water, as they reflect, refract, diffract, interfere with one another, and are absorbed by materials
I.5F: Evaluate the transfer of electrical energy in series and parallel circuits and conductive materials.
I.5I: Critique the advantages and disadvantages of various energy sources and their impact on society and the environment.
