1.1. Newton's laws of motion and gravitation describe the relationships among forces acting on and between objects, their masses, and changes in their motion - but have limitations. Students can:

1.1.a. Gather, analyze and interpret data and create graphs regarding position, velocity and acceleration of moving objects
1.1.b. Develop, communicate and justify an evidence-based analysis of the forces acting on an object and the resultant acceleration produced by a net force

1.5. Energy exists in many forms such as mechanical, chemical, electrical, radiant, thermal, and nuclear, that can be quantified and experimentally determined. Students can:

1.5.a. Develop, communicate, and justify an evidence-based scientific explanation regarding the potential and kinetic nature of mechanical energy
1.5.c. Use direct and indirect evidence to develop predictions of the types of energy associated with objects
1.5.d. Identify different energy forms, and calculate their amounts by measuring their defining characteristics

1.6. When energy changes form, it is neither created not destroyed; however, because some is necessarily lost as heat, the amount of energy available to do work decreases. Students can:

1.6.d. Differentiate among the characteristics of mechanical and electromagnetic waves that determine their energy
Vibrations and Waves
Vibration is the analogous motion of the particles of a mass of air or the like, whose state of equilibrium has been disturbed, as in transmitting sound. Read more...iWorksheets :4

3.4.d. Identify mechanisms in the past and present that have changed Earth's climate
3.4.e. Analyze the evidence and assumptions regarding climate change
3.4.f. Interpret evidence from weather stations, buoys, satellites, radars, ice and ocean sediment cores, tree rings, cave deposits, native knowledge, and other sources in relation to climate change

3.5. There are costs, benefits, and consequences of exploration, development, and consumption of renewable and nonrenewable resources. Students can:
