Colorado: Science [1995]

 •   Explicitly Aligned Standard 2:
Physical Science: Students know and understand common properties, forms, and changes in matter and energy. (Focus: Physics and Chemistry) ...more
     (Grades K - 12)

Current Standard

 •   2.3 Students understand that interactions can produce changes in a system, although the total quantities of matter and energy remain unchanged.
     (Grades K - 12)

Standard's Subset

  SAT Aligned   In grades K-4, what students know and are able to do includes

  • describing an observed change (for example, a melting ice cube, crystal growth, burning candle, physical breakage) in terms of starting conditions, type of change, and ending conditions, using words, diagrams, or graphs; and
 ...more
     (Grades K - 4)

  SAT Aligned   In grades K-4, what students know and are able to do includes

  • observing and describing parts of system (for example, water in a closed jar, water in an open jar, a plant terrarium);
 ...more
     (Grades K - 4)

  SAT Aligned   In grades K-4, what students know and are able to do includes

  • predicting what changes and what remains unchanged when matter experiences an external influence (for example, a push or pull, addition or removal of heat, division of clay into pieces, melting an ice cube, changing a ball of clay to a flattened shape).
 ...more
     (Grades K - 4)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • describing, measuring (for example, temperature, mass, volume, melting point of a substance) and calculating quantities before and after a chemical or physical change within a system (for example, temperature change, mass change, specific heat); and
 ...more
     (Grades 5 - 8)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • describing, measuring (for example, time, distance, mass, force) and calculating quantities that characterize moving objects and their interactions within a system (for example, force, velocity, acceleration, potential energy, kinetic energy).
 ...more
     (Grades 5 - 8)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • identifying and classifying factors causing change within a system (for example, force, light, heat);
 ...more
     (Grades 5 - 8)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • identifying and predicting what will change and what will remain unchanged when matter experiences an external force or energy change (for example, boiling a liquid; comparing the force, distance, and work involved in simple machines);
 ...more
     (Grades 5 - 8)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 5-8 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • observing and gathering data to support the concept of conservation of mass within a closed system (for example, precipitation reaction, forming mixtures, gas production);
 ...more
     (Grades 5 - 8)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 9-12 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • describing and explaining physical interactions of matter using conceptual models (for example, conservation laws of matter and energy, particle model for gaseous behavior).
 ...more
     (Grades 9 - 12)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 9-12 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • describing and predicting chemical changes (for example, combustion, simple chemical reactions), and physical interactions of matter (for example, velocity, force, work, power), using word or symbolic equations; and
 ...more
     (Grades 9 - 12)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 9-12 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • identifying, describing, and explaining physical and chemical changes involving the conservation of matter and energy (for example, oscillating pendulum/spring, chemical reactions, nuclear reactions);
 ...more
     (Grades 9 - 12)

  SAT Aligned   As students in grades 9-12 extend their knowledge, what they know and are able to do includes

  • observing, measuring, and calculating quantities to demonstrate conservation of matter and energy in chemical changes (for example, acid-base, precipitation, oxidation-reduction reactions), and physical interactions of matter (for example, force, work, power);
