It serves as a guide for teachers in teaching the proper usage of laboratory apparatus and equipment.

Curriculum Information

K to 12
Grade 7, Grade 8, Grade 9, Grade 10
Force Motion and Energy
Infer that waves carry energy Differentiate transverse from longitudinal waves and mechanical from electromagnetic waves Relate the characteristics of waves Describe the characteristics of sound using the concepts of wavelength velocity and amplitude Explain sound production in the human voice box and how pitch loudness and quality of sound vary from one person to another Describe how organisms produce transmit and receive sound of various frequencies infrasonic audible and ultrasonic sound Relate characteristics of light such as color and intensity to frequency and wavelength Infer that light travels in a straight line Infer the conditions necessary for heat transfer to occur Describe the different types of charging processes Explain the importance of earthing or grounding Demonstrate the existence of the color components of visible light using a prism or diffraction grating Explain the hierarchy of colors in relation to energy Explain that red is the least bent and violet the most bent according to their wavelengths or frequencies Infer the relationship between current and charge Explain the advantages and disadvantages of series and parallel connections in homes Differentiate electrical power and electrical energy Explain the functions of circuit breakers fuses earthing double insulation and other safety devices in the home Describe the horizontal and vertical motions of a projectile Investigate the relationship between the angle of release and the height and range of the projectile Relate impulse and momentum to collision of objects eg vehicular collision Infer that the total momentum before and after collision is equal Examine effects and predict causes of collisionrelated damagesinjuries Explain energy transformation in various activitiesevents eg waterfalls archery amusement rides Perform activities to demonstrate conservation of mechanical energy Infer that the total mechanical energy remains the same during any process Construct a model to demonstrate that heat can do work Infer that heat transfer can be used to do work and that work involves the release of heat Explain why machines are never 100percent efficient Explain how heat transfer and energy transformation make heat engines like geothermal plants work Compare the relative wavelengths of different forms of electromagnetic waves Cite examples of practical applications of the different regions of em waves such as the use of radio waves in telecommunications Explain the effects of em radiation on living things and the environment Predict the qualitative characteristics orientation type and magnification of images formed by plane and curved mirrors and lenses Apply ray diagramming techniques in describing the characteristics and positions of images formed by lenses Identify ways in which the properties of mirrors and lenses determine their use in optical instruments eg cameras and binoculars Demonstrate the generation of electricity by movement of a magnet through a coil Explain the operation of a simple electric motor and generator
