Viewing & Representing in the area of Physics
A large portion of science and physics in particular involve viewing and representing many different things: viewing an experiment, viewing affects of variable changes, viewing the resulting data, representing data in usable form, representing research results, and more.
From the Alberta-Ed ELA curriculum, "General Outcome #3 – Students will listen, speak, read, write, view, and represent to manage ideas and information."
From the Alberta-Ed Program of Studies for Physics 20/30, the first general learning outcome from Unit A is "Students will describe motion in terms of displacement, velocity, acceleration and time. " Some others from Unit D of Physics 20 is " describe the conditions that produce oscillatory motion" and "describe the properties of mechanical waves and explain how mechanical waves transmit energy."
