Cell Homeostasis: Osmosis
The focus of this resource is cell homeostasis and, more specifically, osmosis. Students investigate the concept through a virtual lab, recording and analyzing data, creating sketches to represent vocabulary, and discovering the role of aquaporins in water transport through the cell membrane.
Learners compare a variety of prokaryotes and eukaryotes to determine similarities and differences among and between them.
The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.
Conservation of Momentum
This resource was created to support TEKS IPC(4)(E).
Graphing Proportional Relationships
Given a proportional relationship, students will be able to graph a set of data from the relationship and interpret the unit rate as the slope of the line.
Given a set of data, the student will be able to generate a scatterplot, determine whether the data are linear or non-linear, describe an association between the two variables, and use a trend line to make predictions for data with a linear association.
Writing Geometric Relationships
Given information in a geometric context, students will be able to use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles.
Solutions of Simultaneous Equations
Given a graph of two simultaneous equations, students will be able to interpret the intersection of the graphs as the solution to the two equations.
Comparing and Explaining Transformations
Given rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations, students will be able to develop algebraic representations for rotations, and generalize and then compare and contrast the properties of congruence transformations and non-congruence transformations.
Mean Absolute Deviation
Given a set of data with no more than 10 data points, students will be able to determine and use the mean absolute deviation to describe the spread of the data.
Generalizing about Populations from Random Samples
Given a population with known characteristics, students will be able to use a variety of methods to generate random samples of the same size in order to understand how a random sample is representative of a population.
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning activities for students learning about the gravitational attraction between objects of different masses at different distances. IPC TEKS (4)(F)
Evaluating Solutions for Reasonableness
Given problem situations, the student will determine if the solutions are reasonable.
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Solutions to Problems
Given application problems, the student will use appropriate tables, graphs, and algebraic equations to find and justify solutions to problems.
Approximating the Value of Irrational Numbers
Given problem situations that include pictorial representations of irrational numbers, the student will find the approximate value of the irrational numbers.
Expressing Numbers in Scientific Notation
Given problem situations, the student will express numbers in scientific notation.
Given examples, students will recognize the importance of taxonomy to the scientific community.
Taxonomy: Major Groups
Given illustrations or descriptions, students will determine the classification of organisms into domains and kingdoms.
Homeostasis: Ecological Systems
Given images, videos, or scenarios, identify and describe the responses of organisms, populations, and communities to various changes in their external environment.
Biological Systems: Homeostasis
Identify and describe internal feedback mechanisms involved in maintaining homeostasis given scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions.
