MA.CC.RST.6-8. Reading Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects
Craft and Structure
RST.6-8.4. Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics.
MA.PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCES
Forms of Energy
PS.13. Differentiate between potential and kinetic energy. Identify situations where kinetic energy is transformed into potential energy and vice versa.
PS.14. Recognize that heat is a form of energy and that temperature change results from adding or taking away heat from a system.
PS.16. Give examples of how heat moves in predictable ways, moving from warmer objects to cooler ones until they reach equilibrium.
Properties of Matter
PS.3. Recognize that the measurement of volume and mass requires understanding of the sensitivity of measurement tools (e.g., rulers, graduated cylinders, balances) and knowledge and appropriate use of significant digits.
MA.SIS. SKILLS OF INQUIRY, EXPERIMENTATION, AND DESIGN
SIS6. Communicate procedures and results using appropriate science and technology terminology.
