The student is expected to:
- identify and describe a system that results from the combination of two
or more systems [wind & ocean] (*6.5-A),
- describe how the properties of a system are different from the properties
of its parts (*6.5-B),
- identify and describe the changes in position, direction of motion, and
speed of an object when acted upon by force (*6.6-A),
- demonstrate that changes in motion can be measured and graphically represented
- describe components of the atmosphere, including oxygen, nitrogen, and
water vapor, and identify the role of atmospheric movement in weather change
- demonstrate how unbalanced forces cause changes in the speed or direction
of an object's motion (*8.7-A).
