Matter and Its Interactions

  • MS-PS1-4 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.

Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

  • MS-PS2-3 Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.

  • MS-PS2-5 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.


  • MS-PS3-1 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.

  • MS-PS3-2 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.

  • MS-PS3-3 Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.

  • MS-PS3-4 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.

From Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes

Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics

Earth's Systems

Earth and Human Activity

  • MS-ESS3-3 Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing human impact on the environment.
