            1c. Identify and apply components of scientific methods in classroom investigations.

            1d. Interpret and generate graphs.

            1e.  Analyze procedures and data to draw conclusions about the validity of research.

            1f. Formulate and revise scientific  esxplanations and models using logic and evidence.

            1g. Communicate effectively to present and explain scientific results using appropriate terminology and graphics.

Competency 2. Describe and explain how forces affect motion.

            2a. Demonstrate and explain the basic principles of Newton’s three laws of motion including calculations of acceleration, force, and momentum.

            2b. Explain the connection between work, force, and energy.

            2c. Describe how the kinetic energy of an object can be converted into potential energy and how energy is transferred or transformed.

            2d. Draw and assess conclusions about charges and electric current.

            2e. Cite evidence and explain the application of electric currents and magnetic fields as they relate to their use in everyday living.

Competency 3. Demonstrate and understanding of general properties and characteristics of waves.
