WV--Next Generation Content Standards and Objectives
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.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.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.3: 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.
S.HS.PS.5: 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, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.7: 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.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.8: refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.9: use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
S.HS.PS.10: analyze data 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.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.11: 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.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.12: apply scientific and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on a macroscopic object during a collision.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.13: use mathematical representations of Newton’s Law of Gravitation and Coulomb’s Law to describe and predict the gravitational and electrostatic forces between objects.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.14: 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.
S.HS.PS.15: 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.
S.HS.PS.16: develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motions of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative positions of particles (objects).
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.17: design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
S.HS.PS.18: 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).
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.19: develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
S.HS.PS.20: use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
S.HS.PS.22: 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.
WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.HS.PS.23: evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.
