Scientific Investigation and Design

Algebra 1

1.1 Scientific Method: ask questions and state hypotheses using prior scientific knowledge to help design and guide development and implementation of a scientific investigation  2c. Algebraic methods, model, patterns and functions: algebraic methods, model, patterns and functions  1.2 Scientific Method: select and use appropriate technologies to gather, process, and analyze data and to report information related to an investigation  Geometry

1.3 Scientific Method: identify major sources of error or uncertainty within an investigation (for example: particular measuring devices and experimental procedures)  4.3 Geometric concepts, properties, and relationships: recognize, draw, describe, and analyze geometric shapes in one, two, and three dimensions;  1.5 Scientific Method: construct and revise scientific explanations and models, using evidence, logic, and experiments that include identifying and controlling variables   4.5 Geometric concepts, properties, and relationships: solve problems and model real-world situations using geometric concepts  Physical Science

4b Geometric concepts, properties, and relationships: deriving and using methods to measure perimeter, area, and volume of regular and irregular geometric figures  2.3 Chemistry: there are observable and measurable physical and chemical properties that allow one to compare, contrast, and separate substances (for example: pH, melting point, conductivity, magnetic attraction) 4c Geometric concepts, properties, and relationships: making and testing conjectures about geometric shapes and their properties, incorporating technology where appropriate Nature of Science involves a particular way of building knowledge and making

Mathematical Reasoning

5.3 Analysis: graphs, equations or other models are used to analyze systems involving change and constancy (for example: comparing the geologic time scale to shorter time frame, exponential growth, a mathematical expression for gas behavior; constructing a closed ecosy 1.1 Number sense and problem solving: construct and interpret number meanings through real-world experiences and the use of hands-on materials; 5.7 Analysis: there is a difference between a scientific theory and a scientific hypothesis 1.2 Number sense and problem solving: represent and use numbers in a variety of equivalent forms (for example, fractions, decimals, percents, exponents, scientific notation); 1e Number sense and problem solving: explain relationships among real numbers, complex numbers, and vectors using models. ## Student Response
