Printer-friendly version

This task asks students to address how particle motion is changing as the temperature of ice changes over the course of a hot day by describing how particles behave at different points on a temperature/time graph. This task is intended to be used as an assessment of student understanding of an unpacked "part" (learning performance) of a performance expectation (PE). This task was developed by the team at CREATE for STEM at Michigan State University.
