KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1
SC-07-4.6. Energy Transformations: Energy transformations are inherent in almost every system in the universe - from tangible examples at the elementary level, such as heat production in simple earth and physical systems to more abstract ideas beginning at middle school, such as those transformations involved in the growth, dying and decay of living systems. The use of models to illustrate the often invisible and abstract notions of energy transfer will aid in conceptualization, especially as students move from the macroscopic level of observation and evidence (primarily elementary school) to the microscopic interactions at the atomic level (middle and high school levels).
SC-07-4.6.1. Unifying Concepts: Students will understand that Earth systems have sources of energy that are internal and external to the Earth. The Sun is the major external source of energy.
SC-07-4.6.2. Unifying Concepts: Students will describe the transfer and/or transformations of energy that occur in examples that involve several different forms of energy (e.g., heat, electrical, light, motion of objects and chemical); explain, qualitatively or quantitatively, that heat lost by hot object equals the heat gained by cold object.
KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006
SC-7-ET. Big Idea: Energy Transformations (Unifying Concepts) - Energy transformations are inherent in almost every system in the universe - from tangible examples at the elementary level, such as heat production in simple Earth and physical systems to more abstract ideas beginning at middle school, such as those transformations involved in the growth, dying and decay of living systems. The use of models to illustrate the often invisible and abstract notions of energy transfer will aid in conceptualization, especially as students move from the macroscopic level of observation and evidence (primarily elementary school) to the microscopic interactions at the atomic level (middle and high school levels). (Academic Expectations 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4)
SC-7-ET-S-3. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will explain where energy comes from (and goes next) in a variety of real-world examples (e.g. burning, respiration, residential lighting, dry cell batteries) involving different forms of energy (e.g. heat, light, kinetic, chemical)
SC-7-ET-S-5. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will equate work done on an object with change in energy of the object
SC-7-ET-U-3. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that all energy must have a source and may change forms or be transferred in a wide variety of ways, including via waves.
SC-7-MF. Big Idea: Motion and Forces (Physical Science) - Whether observing airplanes, baseballs, planets, or people, the motion of all bodies is governed by the same basic rules. At the middle level, qualitative descriptions of the relationship between forces and motion will provide the foundation for quantitative applications of Newton's Laws. (Academic Expectations 2.1, 2.2, 2.3)
SC-7-MF-S-5. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will calculate work as the product of force and distance moved in the direction of the force
