Proving an Ecosystem’s Health Through Succession
Students engage in viewing day three of ecosystem changes in lab groups to determine if the ecosystem is healthy or unhealthy based on scientific data and factors.
Mendelian Genetics Using Monohybrids
Students will work collaboratively through a fictitious, real-world scenario to determine the probability of each breeding pair of dogs producing offspring with the desired trait for a fictitious client.
Producing Plump Produce
In collaborative groups, the students investigate the transport of water within potato cells placed in various tonicity solutions.
Plant, Parts, and Function
Students use prior knowledge of body systems as they make connections to systems in plants. Students learn that some plant systems have similar functions as the respective animal systems. The lesson highlights the following systems in plants: root system, shoot system, vascular system, and reproductive system.
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.
Determining Slopes from Equations, Graphs, and Tables
Given algebraic, tabular, and graphical representations of linear functions, the student will determine the slope of the relationship from each of the representations.
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.
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.
Given scenarios, illustrations. or descriptions, the student will compare variations and adaptations of organisms in different ecosystems.
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.
Energy Transfer in an Ecosystem
All matter contains energy. Energy can be transferred from one object to another. Energy transformation can occur through the conversion of energy from one form to another. Energy is never created nor destroyed; it is always transferred and/or transformed. Students will demonstrate how energy is transformed and transferred in an ecosystem. To do this, students will create energy pyramids by stacking cups that represent organisms and available amounts of energy. Students will graph and analyze the data.
