Designs

Biology

 

Algebra I

 

BIO.1 b: Hypotheses are formulated based on direct observations and information from scientific literature.

 

A4: The student will use matrices to organize and manipulate data, including matrix addition, subtraction, and scalar multiplication. Data will arise from business, industrial, and consumer situations.

BIO.1 c: Variables are defined and investigations are designed to test hypotheses.

Geometry

 

BIO.1 l: Alternative scientific explanations and models are recognized and analyzed.

G.12: The student will make a model of a three-dimensional figure from a two-dimensional drawing and make a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional object. Models and representations will include scale drawings, perspective drawings, blueprints, or computer simulations.

BIO.3 d: Capture, storage, transformation, and flow of energy through the processes of photosynthesis and respiration.

G.13: The student will use formulas for surface area and volume of three-dimensional objects to solve practical problems. Calculators will be used to find decimal approximations for results.

BIO.9 c: Succession patterns in ecosystems.

   

BIO.9 d: Effects of natural events and human activities on ecosystems.

   
Chemistry

 

   

CH.2 c: Mass and charge characteristics of subatomic particles.

   

CH.2 g: Electron configurations, valence electrons, and oxidation numbers.

   

CH.2 i: Historical and quantum models.

   

CH.3 d: Bonding types (ionic and covalent).

   

CH.3 e: Reaction types (synthesis, decomposition, single and double replacement, oxidation-reduction, neutralization, exothermic, and endothermic).

   

CH.3 f: Reaction rates and kinetics (activation energy, catalysis, and degree of randomness).

   
Earth Science

 

   

ES.1 b: Technologies including computers, probeware, and global positioning systems (GPS), are used to collect, analyze, and report data and to demonstrate concepts and simulate experimental conditions.

   

ES.1 c: Scales, diagrams, maps, charts, graphs, tables, and profiles are constructed and interpreted.

   

ES.2 b: Recognizing that evidence is required to evaluate hypotheses and explanations.

   

ES.11 c: Systems interactions (density differences, energy transfer, weather, and climate).

   
Life Science

 

   

LS.1 g: Variables are controlled to test hypotheses, and trials are repeated.

   

LS.1 h: Continuous line graphs are constructed, interpreted, and used to make predictions.

   

LS.7 d: Energy flow in food webs and energy pyramids.

   

LS.12 e: Environmental issues (water supply, air quality, energy production, and waste management).

   
Physics

 

   

PH.1 b: Instruments are selected and used to extend observations and measurements of mass, volume, temperature, heat exchange, energy transformations, motion, fields, and electric charge.

   

PH.14 c: Matter/energy equivalence.

   
Physical Science

 

   

PS.2 a: Particle theory of matter.

   

PS.2 c: Solids, liquids, and gases.

   

PS.2 e: Physical properties (shape, density, solubility, odor, melting point, boiling point, color).

   

PS.2 f: Chemical properties (acidity, basicity, combustibility, reactivity).

   

PS.4 c: Simple compounds (formulas and the nature of bonding).

   

PS.5 c: Chemical changes (types of reactions, reactants, and products; and balanced equations).

   

PS.6 a: Potential and kinetic energy.
