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 ## Student Response
