###
Types of Motion

Students will distinguish between and/or interpret the types of motion.

###
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 Graph

Given data in the form of a graph, the student will use the graph to interpret solutions to problems.

###
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.

###
Demonstrating the Pythagorean Theorem

Given pictures or models that represent the Pythagorean Theorem, the student will demonstrate an understanding of the theorem.

###
Comparing and Contrasting Proportional and Non-Proportional Linear Relationships

Given problem solving situations, the student will solve the problems by comparing and contrasting proportional and non-proportional linear relationships.

###
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.

###
Comparing and Ordering Rational Numbers

Given a problem situation, the student will compare and order integers, percents, positive and negative fractions and decimals with or without a calculator.

###
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.

###
Enzymes

Given illustrations or scenarios, the student will identify an enzyme and the outcome of its action.

###
Animal System Interactions

Given illustrations, descriptions, or scenarios, students will describe the interactions that occur among systems in humans.

###
Mechanisms of Genetics: Protein Synthesis

Given illustrations or partial DNA or mRNA sequences, students will identify the processes and purposes of transcription and translation.

###
Abiotic Cycles

Given scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions, the student will describe the flow of matter through carbon and nitrogen cycles and describe the consequences of disrupting these cycles.

###
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: System Organization

Given illustrations or descriptions, students will relate the levels of organization to each other and to the whole system.

###
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.

###
Symbiosis

Given scenarios or illustrations, the student will determine the nature and type of relationship between organisms, including parasitism, commensalism, mutualism, and competition.
