M.1.b: Students know that average speed is the total distance traveled divided by the total time elapsed and that the speed of an object along the path traveled can vary.

Distance-Time and Velocity-Time Graphs

Free-Fall Laboratory

M.1.c: Students know how to solve problems involving distance, time, and average speed.

M.1.d: Students know the velocity of an object must be described by specifying both the direction and the speed of the object.

M.1.f: Students know how to interpret graphs of position versus time and graphs of speed versus time for motion in a single direction.

Distance-Time and Velocity-Time Graphs

F.2.a: Students know a force has both direction and magnitude.

F.2.b: Students know when an object is subject to two or more forces at once, the result is the cumulative effect of all the forces.

F.2.c: Students know when the forces on an object are balanced, the motion of the object does not change.

F.2.d: Students know how to identify separately the two or more forces that are acting on a single static object, including gravity, elastic forces due to tension or compression in matter, and friction.

F.2.e: Students know that when the forces on an object are unbalanced, the object will change its velocity (that is, it will speed up, slow down, or change direction).

F.2.f: Students know the greater the mass of an object, the more force is needed to achieve the same rate of change in motion.

Fan Cart Physics

Free-Fall Laboratory

SM.3.a: Students know the structure of the atom and know it is composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

SM.3.d: Students know the states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) depend on molecular motion.

SS.4.b: Students know that the Sun is one of many stars in the Milky Way galaxy and that stars may differ in size, temperature, and color.

SS.4.e: Students know the appearance, general composition, relative position and size, and motion of objects in the solar system, including planets, planetary satellites, comets, and asteroids.

Gravity Pitch

Solar System Explorer

R.5.b: Students know the idea of atoms explains the conservation of matter: In chemical reactions the number of atoms stays the same no matter how they are arranged, so their total mass stays the same.

Chemical Changes

Chemical Equations

R.5.c: Students know chemical reactions usually liberate heat or absorb heat.

R.5.d: Students know physical processes include freezing and boiling, in which a material changes form with no chemical reaction.

Freezing Point of Salt Water

Phase Changes

R.5.e: Students know how to determine whether a solution is acidic, basic, or neutral.

pH Analysis

pH Analysis: Quad Color Indicator

CH.6.c: Students know that living organisms have many different kinds of molecules, including small ones, such as water and salt, and very large ones, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and DNA.

PT.7.a: Students know how to identify regions corresponding to metals, nonmetals, and inert gases.

PT.7.b: Students know each element has a specific number of protons in the nucleus (the atomic number) and each isotope of the element has a different but specific number of neutrons in the nucleus.

PT.7.c: Students know substances can be classified by their properties, including their melting temperature, density, hardness, and thermal and electrical conductivity.

D.8.b: Students know how to calculate the density of substances (regular and irregular solids and liquids) from measurements of mass and volume.

D.8.c: Students know the buoyant force on an object in a fluid is an upward force equal to the weight of the fluid the object has displaced.
