Science and Technology/Engineering
Additional Ideas for Developing Investigations and Learning Experiences and Suggested Extensions to Learning in Technology/Engineering are in Appendix III.
Broad Concept: Oscillating electric or magnetic fields can generate electromagnetic waves over a wide spectrum of energies.
|6.1 ||Describe the electromagnetic spectrum in terms of wavelength and energy, and be able to identify specific regions such as visible light. *|
|6.2 ||Explain how the various wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum have many useful applications such as radio, television, microwave appliances, and cellular telephones.|
|6.3 ||Calculate the frequency and energy of an electromagnetic wave from the wavelength.|
|6.4 ||Recognize and explain the ways in which the direction of visible light can be changed.|
