HS.PS.1: Matter and Its Interactions
HS.PS.1.1: Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS.PS.1.2: Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties, and formation of compounds.
HS.PS.1.5: Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
HS.PS.1.7: Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
HS.PS.2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
HS.PS.2.1: Analyze data and use it to support the claim that Newton?s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
HS.PS.2.2: Use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.
HS.PS.2.5: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that an electric current can produce a magnetic field and that a changing magnetic field can produce an electric current.
HS.PS.3.1: Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known.
HS.PS.3.2: Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as either motions of particles or energy stored in fields.
HS.PS.3.3: Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
HS.PS.3.4: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (second law of thermodynamics).
HS.PS.4: Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
HS.PS.4.1: Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
HS.PS.4.4: Evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.
