PERFOMANCE INDICATOR 4.4:  Observe and describe the properties of sound,                                                                            light, magnetism, and electricity.

Major Understandings:

 

4.4a Different forms of electromagnetic energy have different wavelengths. Some examples of electromagnetic energy are microwaves, infrared light, visible light, ultraviolet light, X-rays, and gamma rays.

4.4b Light passes through some materials, sometimes refracting in the process. Materials absorb and reflect light, and may transmit light. To see an object, light from that object, emitted by or reflected from it, must enter the eye.

4.4c Vibrations in materials set up wave-like disturbances that spread away from the source. Sound waves are an example. Vibrational waves move at different speeds in different materials. Sound cannot travel in a vacuum.

4.4d Electrical energy can be produced from a variety of energy sources and can be transformed into almost any other form of energy.

4.4e Electrical circuits provide a means of transferring electrical energy.

4.4f Without touching them, material that has been electrically charged attracts uncharged material, and may either attract or repel other charged material.

4.4g Without direct contact, a magnet attracts certain materials and either attracts or repels other magnets. The attractive force of a magnet is greatest at its poles.

 

 

PERFOMANCE INDICATOR 4.5: Describe situations that support the principle of conservation of energy.

 

Major Understandings:

4.5a Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but only changed from one form into another.

4.5b Energy can change from one form to another, although in the process some energy is always converted to heat. Some systems transform energy with less loss of heat than others.
