-EARTH SCIENCE-

STANDARD

SC.912.N.1.6

Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

STANDARD

SC.912.N.1.7

Recognize the role of creativity in constructing scientific questions, methods and explanations.

EX.: Work through difficult problems using creativity, and critical and analytical thinking in problem solving (e.g. convergent versus divergent thinking/creativity in problem solving).

STANDARD

SC.912.E.5.2

Identify patterns in the organization and distribution of matter in the universe and the forces that determine them.

Ex.:Identify patterns that influence the formation, hierarchy, and motions of the various kinds of objects in the solar system and the role of gravity and inertia on these motions (include the Sun, Earth, and Moon, planets, satellites, comets, asteroids, star clusters, galaxies, galaxy clusters). Recognize that the universe contains many billions of galaxies, and each galaxy contains many billions of stars. Recognize that constellations are contrived associations of stars that do not reflect functional relationships in space.

STANDARD

SC.912.E.6.3

Analyze the scientific theory of plate tectonics and identify related major processes and features as a result of moving plates.

EX.: Discuss the development of plate tectonic theory, which is derived from the combination of two theories: continental drift and seafloor spreading. Compare and contrast the three primary types of plate boundaries (convergent, divergent, and transform). Explain the origin of geologic features and processes that result from plate tectonics (e.g. earthquakes, volcanoes, trenches, mid-ocean ridges, island arcs and chains, hot spots, earthquake distribution, tsunamis, mountain ranges).

STANDARD

SC.912.E.7.2

 Analyze the causes of the various kinds of surface and deep water motion within the oceans and their impacts on the transfer of energy between the poles and the equator.

EX.: Explain how surface and deep-water circulation patterns (Coriolis effect, La Niña, El Niño, Southern Oscillation, upwelling, ocean surface cooling, freshwater influx, density differences, Labrador Current and Gulf Stream) impact energy transfer in the environment.

STANDARD

SC.912.E.7.4

Summarize the conditions that contribute to the climate of a geographic area, including the relationships to lakes and oceans.

EX.: Describe how latitude, altitude, topography, prevailing winds, proximity to large bodies of water, vegetation and ocean currents determine the climate of a geographic area.


 STANDARD

SC.912.E.7.9

Cite evidence that the ocean has had a significant influence on climate change by absorbing, storing, and moving heat, carbon, and water.

EX.: Explain how the oceans act as sources/sinks of heat energy, store carbon dioxide mostly as dissolved HCO3&ndash and CaCO3 as precipitate or biogenic carbonate deposits, which have an impact on climate change.


-BIOLOGY-

STANDARD

SC.912.N.1.6

Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

EX.: Collect data/evidence and use tables/graphs to draw conclusions and make inferences based on patterns or trends in the data.

STANDARD

SC.912.N.3.3

Explain that scientific laws are descriptions of specific relationships under given conditions in nature, but do not offer explanations for those relationships.

EX.: Recognize that a scientific theory provides a broad explanation of many observed phenomena while a scientific law describes how something behaves.

*STANDARD

SC.912.L.15.13

Describe the conditions required for natural selection, including: overproduction of offspring, inherited variation, and the struggle to survive, which result in differential reproductive success.

*STANDARD

SC.912.L.16.10

Evaluate the impact of biotechnology on the individual, society and the environment, including medical and ethical issues.

*STANDARD

SC.912.L.17.5

Analyze how population size is determined by births, deaths, immigration, emigration, and limiting factors (biotic and abiotic) that determine carrying capacity.

UPPER GRADES SCIENCE

-CHEMISTRY-

STANDARD

SC.912.P.10.7

Distinguish between endothermic and exothermic chemical processes.

EX.: Classify chemical reactions and phase changes as exothermic (release thermal energy) or endothermic (absorb thermal energy).

STANDARD

SC.912.N.1.6

Describe how scientific inferences are drawn from scientific observations and provide examples from the content being studied.

EX.: Collect data/evidence and use tables/graphs to draw conclusions and make inferences based on patterns or trends in the data.

STANDARD

SC.912.N.1.7

Recognize the role of creativity in constructing scientific questions, methods and explanations. EX.: Work through difficult problems using creativity, and critical and analytical thinking in problem solving (e.g. convergent versus divergent thinking and creativity in problem solving).

STANDARD

SC.912.P.8.6

Distinguish between bonding forces holding compounds together and other attractive forces, including hydrogen bonding and van der Waals forces.

EX.: Describe how atoms combine to form molecules through ionic, covalent, and hydrogen bonding. Compare and contrast the characteristics of the interactions between atoms in ionic and covalent compounds and how these bonds form. Use electronegativity to explain the difference between polar and nonpolar covalent bonds.

STANDARD

SC.912.P.8.10

Describe oxidation-reduction reactions in living and non-living systems.

EX.: Identify the substance(s) losing and gaining electrons in oxidation-reduction reactions. Discuss voltaic cells, various types of batteries, electrolysis of water, smelting and purification of metals, electrolysis of brine versus molten NaCl, neutralization reactions, electrolytic cells, and living systems (photosynthesis and cellular respiration).
