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.1.3: Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
HS.PS.1.4: Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.
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.1.6: Refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.
HS.PS.1.7: Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
HS.PS.1.8: Develop models to illustrate the changes in the composition of the nucleus of the atom and the energy released during the processes of fission, fusion, and radioactive decay.
HS.PS.2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
HS.PS.2.6: Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
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 describe relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves.
HS.PS.4.3: Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described either by a wave model or a particle model, and that for some situations one model is more useful than the other.
