    BIG IDEAS:

    Big Idea 1:  Objects and systems have properties such as mass and charge.  Systems may have internal structure.

    Big Idea 2:  Fields existing in space can be used to explain interactions.

    Big Idea 3:  The interactions of an object with other objects can be described by forces.

    Big Idea 4:  Interactions between systems can result in changes in those systems.

    Big Idea 5:  Changes that occur as a result of interactions are constrained by conservation laws.

    Big Idea 6:  Waves can tranfer energy and momentum from one location to another without the permanent transfer of mass and serve as a mathematical model for the description of other phenomena.
