HS-PS4-1: Next Generation Science Standards

Use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.

HS-PS4-2: Next Generation Science Standards

Evaluate questions about the advantages of using a digital transmission and storage of information.

HS-PS4-3: Next Generation Science Standards

Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described either by a wave model or a particle model, and that for some situations one model is more useful than the other.

HS-PS4-4: Next Generation Science Standards

Evaluate the validity and reliability of claims in published materials of the effects that different frequencies of electromagnetic radiation have when absorbed by matter.

HS-PS4-5: Next Generation Science Standards

Communicate technical information about how some technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and energy.
