SC.6.4 Energy

  • SC.6.4.1 Gather, analyze, and communicate evidence of energy.

    • SC.6.4.1.A Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.

    • SC.6.4.1.B Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principle and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.

    • SC.6.4.1.C 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.

    • SC.6.4.1.D Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

SC.6.6 Structure and Function and Information Processing

SC.6.9 Growth, Development, and Reproduction of Organisms

SC.6.12 Weather and Climate

SC.6.13 Earth's Systems
