###
Covalent Bonding: Electron Dot Diagrams

Given descriptions, diagrams, scenarios, or chemical symbols, students will model covalent bonds using electron dot formula (Lewis structures).

###
Transformations of Absolute Value Functions

Given an absolute value function, the student will analyze the effect on the graph when f(x) is replaced by af(x), f(bx), f(x – c), and f(x) + d for specific positive and negative real values.

###
Forms of Energy

Given diagrams, illustrations, or descriptions, students will identify the types of energy.

###
Law of Conservation of Energy: Heat Transfer

Given illustrations, scenarios, descriptions, and/or diagrams, students will demonstrate understanding of heat transfer.

###
Thermochemical Equations

Given descriptions, diagrams, scenarios, or chemical symbols, students will calculate the energy changes and identify exothermic and endothermic reactions.

###
Calorimetry

Given scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions, students will identify the process of calorimetry and calculate the heat of a chemical process.

###
Water

Given scenarios, descriptions, or illustrations, the student will determine the properties of water that affect chemical and biological systems.

###
Types of Motion

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

###
Matter and Energy - Atomic Structure

Using interactive exercises, students will describe the structure of atoms and the locations of particles with in the atom.

###
Gravity

Using interactives, students will demonstrate that gravity is the force that governs the motion of our solar system.

###
Light Years

Students will identify how light years are used to measure distances and sizes of components of the universe.

###
Types of Science Investigations

Students will distinguish between descriptive, comparative, and experimental investigations.

###
Experimental Design

Given investigation scenarios and lab procedures, students will identify independent variables, dependent variables, constants, and control groups.

###
How Global Patterns of Atmospheric Movement Influence Local Weather

Students will identify how global patterns of atmospheric movement influence local weather.

###
Oceans and Weather Systems

Students will identify the role of the oceans in the formation of weather systems such as hurricanes.

###
Organisms and Environments - Organisms Interactions

Students will describe producer/consumer, predator/prey, and parasite/host relationships as they occur in food webs.

###
Organisms and Environments - Humans and Ocean Systems

Students will identify how humans depend on ocean systems and explain how human activities such as runoff, artificial reefs, or use of resources have modified these systems.

###
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.

###
Interpreting Scatterplots

Given scatterplots that represent problem situations, the student will determine if the data has strong vs weak correlation as well as positive, negative, or no correlation.

###
Making Predictions and Critical Judgments (Table/Verbal)

Given verbal descriptions and tables that represent problem situations, the student will make predictions for real-world problems.
