Next Generation Science Standards
NGSS.MS-PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE
MS-PS3. Energy - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-PS3-5. Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the motion energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
MS-PS3.CC. Crosscutting Concepts
MS-PS3.CC.3. Energy and Matter
MS-PS3.CC.3.1. Energy may take different forms (e.g. energy in fields, thermal energy, energy of motion).
MS-PS3.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS3.A: Definitions of Energy
PS3.A:1. Motion energy is properly called kinetic energy; it is proportional to the mass of the moving object and grows with the square of its speed. (MS-PS3-1)
PS3.B: Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer
PS3.B:1. When the motion energy of an object changes, there is inevitably some other change in energy at the same time. (MS-PS3-5)
