In this assessment, students inquire and design a scientific investigation looking into how different factors can affect the strength of an electromagnet. Students will then complete the experiment based on the method they have planned and collect, process, and evaluate the data and methodology to produce a written report.

Conduction is the process by which heat energy is transmitted through collisions between neighboring atoms or molecules. It occurs more readily in solids and liquids, where the particles are closer together, than in gases, where particles are further apart. In this assessment, students inquire, design, and analyze one factor that affects conduction.
