Science


WAVES AND ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

▪ Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.

▪ Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals.

▪ Use mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.

STRUCTURE, FUNCTION, AND INFORMATION PROCESSING

▪ Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells.

▪ Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.

▪ Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.

MATTER AND ENERGY IN ORGANISMS AND ECOSYSTEMS

▪ Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.

▪ Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.

▪ Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.

INTERDEPENDENT RELATIONSHIPS IN ECOSYSTEMS

▪ Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.

▪ Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.*

SPACE SYSTEMS

▪ Analyze and interpret data to determine scale properties of objects in the solar system.

▪ Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.

▪ Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.

 

HUMAN IMPACTS

▪ Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.*

▪ Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per.capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
