Next Generation Science Standards

MS-ESS3. Earth and Human Activity - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-ESS3-4. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
MS-ESS3.CETS. Connections to Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science
MS-ESS3.CETS.1. Influence of Science, Engineering, and Technology on Society and the Natural World
MS-ESS3.CETS.1.1. All human activity draws on natural resources and has both short and long-term consequences, positive as well as negative, for the health of people and the natural environment. ,
MS-ESS3.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS3.A: Natural Resources
ESS3.A:1. Humans depend on Earth’s land, ocean, atmosphere, and biosphere for many different resources. Minerals, fresh water, and biosphere resources are limited, and many are not renewable or replaceable over human lifetimes. These resources are distributed unevenly around the planet as a result of past geologic processes. (MS-ESS3-1)
MS-PS1. Matter and Its Interactions - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-PS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS3.A: Definitions of Energy
PS3.A:1. The term “heat” as used in everyday language refers both to thermal motion (the motion of atoms or molecules within a substance) and radiation (particularly infrared and light). In science, heat is used only for this second meaning; it refers to energy transferred when two objects or systems are at different temperatures. (secondary to MS-PS1-4)
PS3.A:2. Temperature is not a measure of energy; the relationship between the temperature and the total energy of a system depends on the types, states, and amounts of matter present. (secondary to MS-PS1-4)
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.A:3. Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of particles of matter. The relationship between the temperature and the total energy of a system depends on the types, states, and amounts of matter present. (MS-PS3-3), (MS-PS3-4)
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)
PS3.B:3. Energy is spontaneously transferred out of hotter regions or objects and into colder ones. (MS-PS3-3)
