Physical Science DCI: Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
Information Technologies and Instrumentation
1) HS-PS4.C.1:
Multiple technologies based on the understanding of waves and their interactions with matter are part of everyday experiences in the modern world (e.g., medical imaging, communications, scanners) and in scientific research. They are essential tools for producing, transmitting, and capturing signals and for storing and interpreting the information contained in them.

Engineering Design: Developing Possible Solutions
1) HS-ETS1.B.2:
Both physical models and computers can be used in various ways to aid in the engineering design process.
