Concepts and Processes: Science is a dynamic process; concepts and processes in life systems, earth and space systems, and physical systems are best learned through inquiry and investigation. Students develop an understanding of scientific content through inquiry within the context of these unifying concepts and processes: Systems, classification, order, and organization; Evidence, models, and explanations; Change, constancy, and measurement; Evolution and equilibrium and Form and function
Science as Inquiry: Students demonstrate knowledge, skills, and habits of mind necessary to safely perform scientific inquiry. Inquiry is the foundation for the development of content, teaching students the use of processes of science that enable them to construct and develop their own knowledge. Inquiry requires appropriate field, classroom, and laboratory experiences with suitable facilities and equipment.
History and Nature of Science in Personal and Social Decisions: Students recognize the nature of science, its history, and its connections to personal, social, economic, and political decisions. Historically, scientific events have had significant impacts on our cultural heritage.
