Cycle 1: Interactions and Energy
Teaches applied Mechanical Interactions, Elastic Mechanical Interactions, Friction Mechanical Interactions.
Cycle 2: Interactions and Forces
Shows common misconceptions many students about the nature of forces and their connection to the motion of the object.
Cycle 3: Interactions and Fields
Introduces the idea of a "field of influence" and shows the object being the source or receiver during interaction.
Cycle 4: Model of Magnetism
Teaches the student the basic domain model of magnetism and the interaction between magnets and ferromagnetic materials.
Cycle 5: Electricity Circuit and Electromagnetic
Investigate conditions necessary for a simple electric circuit. Consider the energy flow in circuits with different energy sources and receivers.
Cycle 6: Light and Infrared Interactions
Develop ideas about the relationship between light and seeing. Consider the interactions between light and infrared.
Cycle 7: Interactions and Energy Conservation
Develop ideas surrounding efficiency and energy conservation. Explore the idea that energy changes within objects.
