Enduring Knowledge: Energy is necessary for change to occur. It is the ability of matter to bring about change. There are many forms of energy. The total energy in the universe is constant. Energy can be transformed and transferred, but not destroyed (Conservation of Energy). Energy transfers and transformations exhibit the characteristics of systems with inputs, processes and outputs, as well as connections to other systems.
S5-6:25. Students demonstrate their understanding of Magnetism by:
S5-6:25.4. Distinguishing between objects affected by magnetic force and objects affected by other non-contact forces, using evidence to explain this principle. (DOK 3)
Enduring Knowledge: Everything is constantly moving; motion is relative, but the motion of an object can be described and predicted by tracing and measuring its position over time.
S5-6:20. Students demonstrate their understanding of Motion by:
S5-6:20.1. Design an investigation to collect evidence about an object's inertia and explaining their observation in terms of the object's tendency to resist a change in motion. (DOK 3)
