Resource summary

Traveling & the Science Connection
1 Thermodynamics
1.1 8.B.2. Identify and explain that heat energy is a product of the conversion of one form of energy to another.
1.1.1 Chemical energy in the fuel is converted to kinetic energy of expanding gas through combustion. The energy is moved into the transmission. The fast moving molecules heat up the engine.
1.1.2 AS the energy types change the molecules move faster causing them to heat up.
1.2 Heat Transformations
2 Earth Science
2.1 8.E.3. Identify and describe the atmospheric and hydrospheric conditions related to weather systems.
2.1.1 With bad weather it's harder to control the car making it harder to predict its actions and making people more prone to accidents. Rain and snow makes roads slippery and the windshield hard to see.
2.1.2 Weather is based off of the atmosphere and its condition i.e. If the atmosphere is cold there won't be any rain and if the atmosphere is warm it will rain.
2.2 Role of Water:
3 Astronomy
3.1 8.D.2. Identify and explain celestial phenomena using the regular and predictable motion of objects in the solar system
3.1.1 Now and days cars have predictable motion due to strict guidelines and rules. This makes it easy for people to map out highways/roads.
3.1.2 Everything in the solar systems has a certain motion. By studying this motion scientist can predict calendars, eclipses, ect.
3.2 Regular and Predictable Motion
4 Biology
4.1 8.D.1. Recognize and describe that evolutionary change in species over time occurs as a result of genetic variation in organisms and environmental changes.
4.1.1 Over time cars and gasoline have changed to make them more efficient and better for the modern world. As our world continues to evolve so will cars.
4.1.2 over time species change or evolve to adapt to the always changing climate and terrain.
4.2 Change Over Time
5 Chemistry
5.1 8.D.2. Cite evidence of give examples of chemical properties of substances.
5.1.1 Scientist developed a fuel that works well in cars. They did this by looking at the chemical properties.
5.1.2 Every chemical has a different properties. Scientist study these properties to discover the chemical.
5.2 Chemical Properties
6 Physics
6.1 8.A.1. Develop an explanation of motion using the relationships among time, distance, velocity and acceleration.
6.1.1 Through the years scientists have developed this explanation to help the progression of cars and make them more efficient. They Compare the relationship between time, distance, velocity, and acceleration to better this explantion.
6.1.2 When finding one of these things you use at least two of the other. If you graph all four you have graphed motion.
6.2 Motion
7 Environmental Issues
7.1 8.B.1 Recognize and explain how human activities can accelerate or magnify many naturally occurring changes.
7.1.1 The development of fuels over time has led to the depletion of the ozone layer over time. This has led to global warming and mass heating of the Earth.
7.1.2 Some human activities produce pollution. Can can accelerate natural changes.
7.2 Environmental Impact
