II.A.1: The student will understand that matter is made of small particles and this explains the properties of matter.
II.A.1.1: The student will know that there are more than 100 different elements with unique properties.
II.A.1.2: The student will use evidence to explain that matter is made of small particles called atoms or molecule s which are too small to see.
II.A.1.4: The student will describe the states of matter in terms of the space between particles.
II.A.1.5: The student will distinguish between volume, mass and density.
II.A.1.6: The student will use the characteristic properties of density, melting point, boiling point and solubility to identify and distinguish mixtures and pure substances.
II.A.1.7: The student will know that atoms are the smallest unit of an element that maintains the characteristics of the element.
II.B.1: The student will differentiate between chemical and physical changes.
II.B.1.1: The student will define chemical and physical changes.
II.C.1: The student will understand that energy exists in many forms and can be transferred in many ways.
II.C.1.1: The student will compare and contrast heat, chemical, mechanical and electrical energy and identify transformations of energy from one form to another in everyday situations.
II.C.1.2: The student will recognize that heat is transferred by convection, conduction and radiation from warmer objects to cooler ones until both reach the same temperature.
II.C.1.3: The student will demonstrate that visible light from the sun or reflected by objects may be made up of a mixture of many different colors of light.
II.C.1.4: The student will recognize the relationship between light and heat.
II.C.1.5: The student will describe waves in terms of speed, frequency and wave length.
II.C.1.6: The student will recognize that vibrations such as sound and earthquakes move in waves and that waves move at different speeds in different materials.
II.D.1: The student will describe the motion of objects.
II.D.1.1: The student will use a frame of reference to describe the position, speed, and acceleration of an object.
II.D.1.2: The student will measure and graph the positions and speed of an object.
II.D.1.3: The student will recognize that unbalanced forces acting on an object change the object’s speed and/or direction.
II.E.1: The student will understand that a variety of forces govern the structure and motion of objects in the universe.
II.E.1.2: The student will know that there are positive and negative charges and that like charges repel one another and opposite charges attract.
