Biology   Geometry

 

BIO.1 a: observations of living organisms are recorded in the lab and in the field

G.12: make a model of a three-dimensional figure from a two-dimensional drawing and make a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional object. Models and representations will include scale drawings, perspective drawings, blueprints, or computer simulations.

BIO.1 b: hypotheses are formulated based on direct observations and information from scientific literature

G.13: use formulas for surface area and volume of three-dimensional objects to solve practical problems. Calculators will be used to find decimal approximations for results.

BIO.1 c: variables are defined and investigations are designed to test hypotheses

G.14a: use proportional reasoning to solve practical problems, given similar geometric objects

BIO.1 k: differentiation is made between a scientific hypothesis and theory

   

BIO.1 l: alternative scientific explanations and models are recognized and analyzed

   
Chemistry

 

   

CH.3 f: reaction rates and kinetics (activation energy, catalysis, and degree of randomness)

   
Earth Science

 

   

ES.1 a: volume, area, mass, elapsed time, direction, temperature, pressure, distance, density, and changes in elevation/depth are calculated utilizing the most appropriate tools

   
Life Science

 

   

LS.1 d: models are constructed to illustrate and explain phenomena

   

LS.1 h: continuous line graphs are constructed, interpreted, and used to make predictions
