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.
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.
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.
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.
Solving Quadratic Equations Using Algebraic Methods
Given a quadratic equation, the student will solve the equation by factoring, completing the square, or by using the quadratic formula.
