The Physical Setting: Motion
Grades 9-12, page 92

Waves can superpose on one another, bend around corners, reflect off surfaces, be absorbed by materials they enter, and change direction when entering a new material. All these effects vary with wavelength. The energy of waves (like any form of energy) can be changed into other forms of energy.

Grades K-4, page 127 
Light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object. Light can be reflected by a mirror, refracted by a lens, or absorbed by the object. 

NSES Content Standard B 
Physical Science: Transfer of energy 
Grades 5-8, page 155 
Light interacts with matter by transmission (including refraction), absorption, or scattering (including reflection). To see an object, light from that object--emitted by or scattered from it--must enter the eye. 

NSES Content Standard B
Physical Science: Interactions of energy and matter 
Grades 9-12, page 180 
Waves, including sound and seismic waves, waves on water, and light waves, have energy and can transfer energy when they interact with matter.
