Students answer the question “How can one describe physical interactions between objects and within systems of objects?”

Particles of Matter and Chemical Reactions

MSPNG-2

Particles of Matter and Chemical Reactions focuses on helping students understand ideas related to the particles that make up matter and how they behave during temperature change and when different substances are combined.

Energy and the Electromagnetic Spectrum

MSPNG-3

In Energy and the Electromagnetic Spectrum, middle school students continue their exploration into energy by delving into the concept of energy and energy transfer through the exploration of the transfer of energy between kinetic energy and potential energy within the system of a roller coaster.
