4th Grade (SCI) Science Standards [PS4] Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
SCI-04.PS4.03 Construct a code to convey information by researching past and present methods of transmitting information.
Clarification Statement: Examples of past methods could include a string between two cans, Morse code, rotary dial telephones.
Examples of current methods include fiber optics, digitized signals, wireless communication, blue tooth,
and using code.org for exploration of computer coding patterns. Disciplinary Core Ideas Digitized information can be transmitted over
long distances without significant degradation.
High-tech devices, such as computers or cell
phones, can receive and decode information- convert it from digitized form to voice-and
Optimizing the Design Solution
Different solutions need to be tested in order
to determine which of them best solves the
problem, given the criteria and the
