6th Grade (SCI) Physical Science Standards [PS4] Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfers
SCI-MS.PS4.03 Evaluate how different forms of technology utilize different signals.
Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on a basic understanding that waves can be used for communication purposes. Examples could
include using fiber optic cable to transmit light pulses, radio wave pulses in WiFi devices, and conversion of
stored binary patterns to make sound or text on a computer screen. Disciplinary Core Ideas PS4.C: Information Technologies and
Digitized signals (sent as wave pulses) are a
more reliable way to encode and transmit
