ICP.1.1: Measure the motion of objects to understand the relationships among distance, velocity and acceleration. Develop deeper understanding through graphical analysis of the time dependence of acceleration, velocity and distance.
ICP.1.2: Describe and apply NewtonÂ?s three laws of motion. By experimentation, determine the relationships among the variables in NewtonÂ?s laws and how all three laws relate mass, acceleration and force as a triad of proportional variables, leading to the definitions of momentum and energy.
ICP.2.1: Identify properties of objects that vibrate by using NewtonÂ?s laws to understand the motion. Understand that vibrating objects can give rise to mechanical waves.
ICP.2.2: Identify properties of waves (e.g., frequency, wavelength, amplitude, energy and wave speed).
ICP.2.4: Apply the properties of waves to wave phenomena like reflection, refraction, transmission of energy and loss of energy.
ICP.3.1: Describe how we use macroscopic properties of matter to model microscopic processes.
ICP.3.2: Study the characteristics of solids, liquids and gases and their changes of state. Interpret them in terms of a molecular model which describes their energies and motions.
ICP.3.3: Understand how thermal energy (the microscopic motions of the atoms, molecules or both) is related to the macroscopic concept of temperature. Examine the differences in these concepts by measuring the temperature changes and determining specific heat capacity of water as it is heated or cooled.
ICP.4.1: Using conservation of energy, calculate the thermal energy released or absorbed by an object and distinguish between exothermic and endothermic changes.
ICP.4.2: Differentiate among conduction, convection and radiation and identify them as types of energy transfer.
ICP.4.3: Explain that electrons can absorb energy and can release energy and that electrons in atoms do this at specific energies.
ICP.4.4: Describe the relationships among velocity, frequency, wavelength and energy in electromagnetic waves. Describe the regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
ICP.5.2: Use the periodic table to understand important patterns in properties of elements. Recognize that the pattern of properties of the elements correlates most closely with the configuration of the electrons in each element.
ICP.5.3: Understand that the atomic number is unique to each element and is the number of protons in the nucleus of the element.
ICP.5.5: Using conservation principles, write and balance chemical equations.
ICP.5.6: Identify key indicators of a chemical change and classify simple types of chemical reactions. Differentiate among covalent, ionic, hydrogen and Van der Waals bonding. Write formulas for and name compounds of each type.
ICP.6.1: Explain that objects that carry a net charge will exert an electric force (attractive or repulsive) on other objects.
ICP.6.4: Define and describe the relationships among voltage, current resistance and power in open and closed electrical circuits.
ICP.6.5: Describe the current-flow differences in parallel and series circuits.
ICP.7.2: Differentiate among protons, neutrons and electrons and determine the number of these subatomic particles in each atom.
ICP.7.7: Describe the various forms of emission that are typical of radioactive decay.
