DE.1. Nature and Application of Science and Technology
1.1. Understandings and Abilities of Scientific Inquiry
Enduring Understanding: Scientific inquiry involves asking scientifically-oriented questions, collecting evidence, forming explanations, connecting explanations to scientific knowledge and theory, and communicating and justifying the explanation.
1.1.C. Understand that: In a scientific investigation, data collection involves making precise measurements and keeping accurate records so that others can replicate the experiment.
1.1.C.1. Be able to: Accurately collect data through the selection and use of tools and techniques appropriate to the investigation. Construct tables, diagrams and graphs, showing relationships between two variables, to display and facilitate analysis of data. Compare and question results with and from other students. (Level: Essential)
DE.3. Energy and Its Effects
3.2. Forces and the Transfer of Energy
Enduring Understanding: Changes take place because of the transfer of energy. Energy is transferred to matter through the action of forces. Different forces are responsible for the transfer of the different forms of energy.
3.2.C. Forces can be used to transfer energy from one object to another. Simple machines are used to transfer energy in order to simplify difficult tasks. (Level: Essential)
