###
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.

###
Using Theoretical and Experimental Probability to Make Predictions

Given an event to simulate, the student will use theoretical probabilities and experimental results to make predictions and decisions.

###
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 - Competition of Abiotic and Biotic Factors

Students will examine how organisms and populations in an ecosystem depend on and may compete for biotic and abiotic factors such as quantity of light, water, range of temperatures, or soil composition.

###
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.

###
Making Solutions

Given graphs, scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions, the student will determine how different processes affect solubility in aqueous solutions.

###
Precipitation Reactions

Given graphs, scenarios, illustrations, or descriptions, the student will determine how different processes affect solubility in aqueous solutions.

###
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.

###
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.

###
Collecting Data and Making Predictions

Given an experimental situation, the student will write linear functions that provide a reasonable fit to data to estimate the solutions and make predictions.
