###
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.

###
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.

###
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.

###
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.

###
Writing Expressions to Model Patterns (Table/Pictorial → Symbolic)

Given a pictorial or tabular representation of a pattern and the value of several of their terms, the student will write a formula for the nth term of a sequences.

###
Quadratics: Connecting Roots, Zeros, and x-Intercepts

Given a quadratic equation, the student will make connections among the solutions (roots) of the quadratic equation, the zeros of their related functions, and the horizontal intercepts (*x*-intercepts) of the graph of the function.

###
Applying the Laws of Exponents: Verbal/Symbolic

Given verbal and symbolic descriptions of problems involving exponents, the student will simplify the expressions using the laws of exponents.

###
Using the Laws of Exponents to Solve Problems

Given problem situations involving exponents, the student will use the laws of exponents to solve the problems.
