SP4. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the properties and applications
of waves.
a. Develop and use mathematical models to explain mechanical and electromagnetic waves as a
propagating disturbance that transfers energy.
(Clarification statement: Mathematically describe how the velocity, frequency, and
wavelength of a propagating wave are related.)
b. Develop and use models to describe and calculate characteristics related to the interference
and diffraction of waves (single and double slits).
c. Construct an argument that analyzes the production and characteristics of sounds waves.
(Clarification statement: Includes, but not limited to, Doppler Effect, standing waves,
wavelength, the relationship between amplitude and the energy of the wave, and the
relationship between frequency and pitch.)
d. Plan and carry out investigations to characterize the properties and behavior of
electromagnetic waves.
(Clarification statement: Properties of waves include, but not limited to, amplitude,
frequency, wavelength, and the relationship between frequency or wavelength and the energy
of the wave.)

e. Plan and carry out investigations to describe common features of light in terms of color,
polarization, spectral composition, and wave speed in transparent media.
• Analyze experimentally and mathematically aspects of reflection and refraction of light
waves and describe the results using optical ray diagrams.
• Perform calculations related to reflections from plane surfaces and focusing using thin
lenses.
f. Plan and carry out investigations to identify the behavior of light using lenses.
(Clarification statement: Investigations concerning Snell’s Law, optical ray diagrams, and
thin lens equation should be conducted.)
g. Plan and carry out investigations to describe changes in diffraction patterns associated with
geometry and wavelength for mechanical and electromagnetic waves.

SP6. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about nuclear changes of matter and related technological applications.
