###
Protein Synthesis

The learner explores the structure and function of the nucleic acids and enzymes important to the process of synthesizing proteins.

###
Cell Comparisons

Learners compare a variety of prokaryotes and eukaryotes to determine similarities and differences among and between them.

###
Mechanisms of Evolution Beyond Natural Selection

Learners analyze and evaluate the effects of other evolutionary mechanisms.

###
Evidence for Evolution

Learners analyze and evaluate how evidence of common ancestry among groups is provided by the fossil record, biogeography, and homologies, including anatomical, molecular, and developmental.

###
Converting Between Measurement Systems

Given a real-world situation with measurements in either metric/SI or customary units, the student will solve a problem requiring them to convert from one system to the other.

###
Recognizing Misuses of Graphical or Numerical Information

Given a problem situation, the student will analyze data presented in graphical or tabular form by evaluating the predictions and conclusions based on the information given.

###
Evaluating Methods of Sampling from a Set of Data

Given a problem situation, the student will evaluate a method of sampling to determine the validity of an inference made from the set of 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.

###
Taxonomy Standards

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.

###
Using Multiplication by a Constant Factor

Given problems involving proportional relationships, the student will use multiplication by a constant factor to solve the problems.

###
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.

###
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Data from a Table

Given data in table form, the student will use the data table to interpret solutions to problems.

###
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.
