Grade Level Expectations
7.1.1: Calculate work done on an object as force or distance varies.
7.1.2: Explain in writing how the six simple machines make work easier but do not alter the amount of work done on an object.
7.1.3: Determine ways to modify a simple machine (inclined plane, pulley and lever) to improve its mechanical advantage.
7.1.6: Use a diagram or model of a moving object (roller coaster, pendulum, etc.) to describe the conversion of potential energy into kinetic energy and vice versa.
7.1.7: Discuss different forms of energy and describe how they can be converted from one form to another for use by humans (e.g., thermal, electrical, light, chemical, mechanical).
7.1.9: Calculate potential and kinetic energy and relate those quantities to total energy in a system.
7.2.1: Compare and contrast living organisms that are single celled with multicellular organisms.
7.2.2: Illustrate and describe in writing the structure and the function of the cell membrane, cytoplasm, mitochondria and nucleus in an animal cell.
7.2.3: Explain how the structure and function of multicellular organisms (animals) is dependent on the interaction of cells, tissues, organs and organ systems.
7.2.8: Label the major parts of the human circulatory system and explain in writing the function of each part (heart, veins, arteries and capillaries).
7.2.9: Design and conduct controlled variable experiments to analyze the interaction between the circulatory and respiratory systems as the demand for oxygen changes.
7.2.10: Label the major parts of the human digestive system and explain in writing the function of each part in the chemical and physical breakdown of food (mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and rectum).
7.3.3: Demonstrate the processes of folding and faulting of the earth’s crust.
7.3.4: Correlate common geological features/events (deep sea trenches, mountains, earthquakes, volcanoes) with the location of plate boundaries.
7.3.6: Analyze and interpret data about the location, frequency and intensity of earthquakes.
