This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

1-PS4-1

Students can use the Nanosecond Bar in an investigation and make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.

MS-PS4-1

Students can use the Nanosecond Bar in an investigation and use mathematical representation to describe a simple model for waves that include how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.

HS-PS4-1

Students can use the Nanosecond Bar in an investigation and use mathematical representation to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
