Next Generation Science Standards
NGSS.MS-LS. LIFE SCIENCE
MS-LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-LS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.D: Information Processing
LS1.D:1. Each sense receptor responds to different inputs (electromagnetic, mechanical, chemical), transmitting them as signals that travel along nerve cells to the brain. The signals are then processed in the brain, resulting in immediate behaviors or memories. (MS-LS1-8)
NGSS.MS-PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE
MS-PS4. Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-PS4-1. Use mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.
MS-PS4-2. Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
MS-PS4.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS4.A: Wave Properties
PS4.A:1. A simple wave has a repeating pattern with a specific wavelength, frequency, and amplitude. (MS-PS4-1)
