Product Description

Each resource inside this bundle was handpicked to cover all aspects of the MS-PS4 NGSS (MS-PS4-1 to MS-PS4-3). The resources found inside will ensure your students fulfill each requirement of the standard and keep them interested and engaged throughout. A description of how each standard is covered is broken down below. This bundle will save you time and money, the two things every teacher needs more of. There are over 25 classroom-tested resources included which individually would cost over \$100. You'll save 60% by purchasing them through this bundle not to mention tens or even hundreds of hours of prep time.

MS PS4 Waves and their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer

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.

Emphasis is on describing waves with both qualitative and quantitative thinking.

Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include electromagnetic waves and is limited to standard repeating waves.

Resources:

• The Polarization of Light Lesson
• The Wave Nature of Light Lesson
• Waves – An Introduction Lesson
• Wave Properties Investigation

MS PS4-2: Develop a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.

Emphasis is on both light and mechanical waves. Examples of models could include drawings, simulations, and written descriptions.

Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to qualitative applications pertaining to light and mechanical waves.

Resources:

• Diffraction and Interference of Waves Lesson
• Diffraction Gratings Lesson

• The Polarization of Light Lesson
• Thin Lens Equation and Magnification Lesson
• Transmission, Reflection, and Interference Lesson

MS PS4-3: Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals.

Emphasis is on a basic understanding that waves can be used for communication purposes. Examples could include using fiber optic cable to transmit light pulses, radio wave pulses in wifi devices, and conversion of stored binary patterns to make sound or text on a computer screen.

Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include binary counting. Assessment does not include the specific mechanism of any given device.

Resources:

• Quizzes and Tests
• Waves and Sound Quiz
• Waves and Sound Unit Test with Two Versions
• Sound, Sound Energy, and Speed Lab Station Activity
