Alaska Content and Performance Standards
AK.B1. Concepts of Physical Science (SB1, SB2, SB3, SB4)
 SB3.1. The student demonstrates understanding of the interactions between matter and energy and the effects of these interactions on systems by identifying physical and chemical changes based on observable characteristics (e.g., tearing paper vs. burning paper).
AK.SB. Concepts of Physical Science: A student should understand and be able to apply the concepts, models, theories, universal principles, and facts that explain the physical world. A student who meets the content standard should:
SB1. Develop an understanding of the characteristic properties of matter and the relationship of these properties to their structure and behavior.
SB3. Develop an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy, including physical, chemical, and nuclear changes, and the effects of these interactions on physical systems.
