  • Class Overview

    This quarter will focus on energy, magnetism, and electricity.  Students will create a model that demonstrates a system transferring energy from one object to another; even if the objects are not touching each other. Then, they will develop an energy model that moves electric currents from place to place. Students will develop and use a model that demonstrates magnetic forces. Finally, we will use evidence to create an argument about the impact of renewable and nonrenewable resources to generate electricity.
