### PS: Physical Sciences

#### PS1-3: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

PS1-3-1: Students who demonstrate understanding can: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.

PS1-3-1.PS2.A: Forces and Motion

PS1-3-1.PS2.A.i: Each force acts on one particular object and has both strength and a direction. An object at rest typically has multiple forces acting on it, but they add to give zero net force on the object. Forces that do not sum to zero can cause changes in the object’s speed or direction of motion. (Boundary: Qualitative and conceptual, but not quantitative additions of forces are used at this level.)

PS1-3-2: Students who demonstrate understanding can: Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

PS1-3-2.PS2.A: Forces and Motion

PS1-3-2.PS2.A.i: Force applied to an object can alter the position and motion of that object: revolve, rotate, float, sink, fall and at rest.

PS1-3-3: Students who demonstrate understanding can: Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.

### LS: Life Sciences

#### LS2-3: Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits

LS2-3-1: Students who demonstrate understanding can: Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms.

LS2-3-1.LS3.A: Inheritance of Traits

LS2-3-1.LS3.A.i: Many characteristics of organisms are inherited from their parents.

LS2-3-2: Students who demonstrate understanding can: Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

LS2-3-2.LS3.A: Inheritance of Traits

LS2-3-2.LS3.A.i: Other characteristics result from individuals’ interactions with the environment, which can range from diet to learning. Many characteristics involve both inheritance and environment.
