Types of Science Investigations
Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.
Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.
Generating Different Representations of Relationships
Given problems that include data, the student will generate different representations, such as a table, graph, equation, or verbal description.
Given field and laboratory scenarios and laboratory data, students will construct data tables and graphs, using repeated trials and means to organize data.
Conclusions and Scientific Explanations
Given laboratory investigation data, students will determine the best conclusion based upon that data.
Given investigation quantitative data, students will determine its degree of precision and/or accuracy and causes for uncertainties in measured data.
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.
Relationships Between Organisms: Food Chains, Webs, and Pyramids
Given illustrations, students will analyze the flow of matter and energy in food chains, food webs, and ecological pyramids.
Determining if a Relationship is a Functional Relationship
The student is expected to gather and record data & use data sets to determine functional relationships between quantities.
Graphing Dilations, Reflections, and Translations
Given a coordinate plane, the student will graph dilations, reflections, and translations, and use those graphs to solve problems.
Graphing and Applying Coordinate Dilations
Given a coordinate plane or coordinate representations of a dilation, the student will graph dilations and use those graphs to solve problems.
Developing the Concept of Slope
Given multiple representations of linear functions, the student will develop the concept of slope as a rate of change.
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Data from a Graph
Given data in the form of a graph, the student will use the graph to interpret solutions to problems.
Solving Systems of Equations with Graphs
Given verbal and/or algebraic descriptions of situations involving systems of linear equations, the student will solve the system of equations using graphs.
Analyzing the Effects of the Changes in "a" on the Graph y = ax^2 + c
Given verbal, graphical, or symbolic descriptions of the graph of y = ax^2 + c, the student will investigate, describe, and predict the effects on the graph when a is changed.
Solving Quadratic Equations Using Concrete Models
Given a quadratic equation, the student will use tiles to factor and solve the equation.
