Scientific Reasoning and Communication Strand:
SRC9-10.1 Scientific inquiry is a thoughtful and coordinated attempt to search out, describe and explain our world.
SRC9-10.2 Literacy in science education includes speaking, listening, presenting, interpreting, reading and writing about science.
SRC9-10.3 Mathematics provides useful tools for the description, analysis and presentation of scientific data and ideas.
High School Science Strand I: Alternative Energy Resources:
Energy: How is it transferred and transformed? The total matter and energy of the universe is constant. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be changed from one form to another.
. Describe the transformation and conservation of kinetic and potential in mechanical, chemical and electrical systems.
. Explore and describe how electricity is generated, transferred and used in modern technologies.
High School Science Strand 2: A Balanced Environment:
Chemical reactions: How are New Materials Formed? Atoms react with each other to form molecules, and the configuration of atoms and molecules determines the properties of the new materials.
.Explore reactants and products (e.g., CO, NOx, SO2, Ozone, particulates) in combustion reactions.
High School Science Strand 5: The Physics of Modern Technologies:
Electromagnetic Spectrum: What are the properties of waves? Waves have energy and can transfer energy when they interact with matter.
. Explore and explain how heat can be transferred through materials and across space.
