IL.11.Inquiry and Design: Understand the processes of scientific inquiry and technological design to investigate questions, conduct experiments and solve problems.
Inquiry and Design: Understand the processes of scientific inquiry and technological design to investigate questions, conduct experiments and solve problems.
11.A. Know and apply the concepts, principles and processes of scientific inquiry. 11.A.5c. Conduct systematic controlled experiments to test the selected hypotheses.
11.A.5d. Apply statistical methods to make predictions and to test the accuracy of results.
IL.12.Concepts and Principles: Understand the fundamental concepts, principles and interconnections of the life, physical and earth/space sciences.
Concepts and Principles: Understand the fundamental concepts, principles and interconnections of the life, physical and earth/space sciences.
12.A. Know and apply concepts that explain how living things function, adapt and change. 12.A.5a. Explain changes within cells and organisms in response to stimuli and changing environmental conditions (e.g., homeostasis, dormancy).
12.A.5b. Analyze the transmission of genetic traits, diseases and defects.
12.B. Know and apply concepts that describe how living things interact with each other and with their environment. 12.B.5a. Analyze and explain biodiversity issues and the causes and effects of extinction.
12.B.5b. Compare and predict how life forms can adapt to changes in the environment by applying concepts of change and constancy (e.g., variations within a population increase the likelihood of survival under new conditions).
12.C. Know and apply concepts that describe properties of matter and energy and the interactions between them. 12.C.5a. Analyze reactions (e.g., nuclear reactions, burning of fuel, decomposition of waste) in natural and man-made energy systems.
12.C.5b. Analyze the properties of materials (e.g., mass, boiling point, melting point, hardness) in relation to their physical and/or chemical structures. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Heat
12.D. Know and apply concepts that describe force and motion and the principles that explain them. 12.D.5a. Analyze factors that influence the relative motion of an object (e.g., friction, wind shear, cross currents, potential differences).
12.D.5b. Analyze the effects of gravitational, electromagnetic and nuclear forces on a physical system.
12.E. Know and apply concepts that describe the features and processes of the Earth and its resources. 12.E.5. Analyze the processes involved in naturally occurring short-term and long-term Earth events (e.g., floods, ice ages, temperature, sea-level fluctuations).
12.F. Know and apply concepts that explain the composition and structure of the universe and Earth's place in it. 12.F.5a. Compare the processes involved in the life cycle of stars (e.g., gravitational collapse, thermonuclear fusion, nova) and evaluate the supporting evidence.
12.F.5b. Describe the size and age of the universe and evaluate the supporting evidence (e.g., red-shift, Hubble's constant).
IL.13.Science, Technology, and Society: Understand the relationships among science, technology and society in historical and contemporary contexts.
Science, Technology, and Society: Understand the relationships among science, technology and society in historical and contemporary contexts.
13.A. Know and apply the accepted practices of science. 13.A.5a. Design procedures and policies to eliminate or reduce risk in potentially hazardous science activities.
13.A.5c. Explain the strengths, weaknesses and uses of research methodologies including observational studies, controlled laboratory experiments, computer modeling and statistical studies.
13.B. Know and apply concepts that describe the interaction between science, technology and society. 13.B.5a. Analyze challenges created by international competition for increases in scientific knowledge and technological capabilities (e.g., patent issues, industrial espionage, technology obsolescence).
13.B.5b. Analyze and describe the processes and effects of scientific and technological breakthroughs.
13.B.5c. Design and conduct an environmental impact study, analyze findings and justify recommendations.
