Next Generation Science Standards

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)
MS-PS3. Energy - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-PS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
MS-PS3.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS3.B: Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer
PS3.B:3. Energy is spontaneously transferred out of hotter regions or objects and into colder ones. (MS-PS3-3)
