SEEd - Grade 8
Strand 8.2: ENERGY IS STORED AND TRANSFERRED IN PHYSICAL SYSTEMS
Objects can store and transfer energy within systems. Energy can be transferred between objects, which involves changes in the objectís energy. There is a direct relationship between an objectís energy, mass, and velocity. Energy can travel in waves and may be harnessed to transmit information.
8th Grade Science OER Textbook for Utah SEEd Standards
This Open Educational Resource (OER) textbook has been written specifically for students as a reputable source for them to obtain information aligned to the Utah Science with Engineering Education (SEEd) Standards. This book is to be used to support the curriculum created by teachers and not to supplant classroom instruction.
Friction: Slowing Things Down
Diagrams and examples of types of friction, terminal velocity, and using and reducing friction.
SEEd Storyline 8.2.1-3
Storyline Big Ideas: Speed and Mass affect the amount of kinetic energy an object has. Which would do more damage in a crash, a semi truck or a smart car?
SEEd Storyline 8.2.4
Storyline Big Ideas: The amplitude of a wave is related to the wave energy. What makes some sounds louder than others (lights brighter than others)?
SEEd Storyline 8.2.5
Storyline Big Ideas: The structure of a wave affects it's ability to be reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through mediums. How are reflection, absorption and transmission of light waves through a medium involved in the creation of a rainbow?
SEEd Storyline 8.2.6
Storyline Big Ideas: Digital signals are a more reliable way to store or transmit information than analog signals. Why can a cd (or hard drive?) hold so many more songs than a vinyl record even though a record is larger?
The purpose of this lesson is to use the Internet to explore the Industrial Revolution.
