# Time Dilation

## As the velocity of an object approaches the speed of light it appears to move more slowly through time to a stationary observer.

Levels are CK-12's student achievement levels.
Basic Students matched to this level have a partial mastery of prerequisite knowledge and skills fundamental for proficient work.
At Grade (Proficient) Students matched to this level have demonstrated competency over challenging subject matter, including subject matter knowledge, application of such knowledge to real-world situations, and analytical skills appropriate to subject matter.
Advanced Students matched to this level are ready for material that requires superior performance and mastery.
