Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQA

Scientists generate and evaluate questions to investigate the natural world.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQB

Scientific progress requires the use of various methods appropriate for answering different kinds of research questions, a thoughtful plan for gathering data needed to answer the question, and care in collecting, analyzing, and displaying the data.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQC

Conclusions must be logical, based on evidence, and consistent with prior established knowledge.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQD

The methods and procedures that scientists use to obtain evidence must be clearly reported to enhance opportunities for further investigation.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQE

The essence of scientific investigation involves the development of a theory or conceptual model that can generate testable predictions.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQF


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQG

Public communication among scientists is an essential aspect of research. Scientists evaluate the validity of one another's investigations, check the reliability of results, and explain inconsistencies in findings.


Science: EALR 2 Inquiry, Content Standard 9-12 INQH

Scientists carefully evaluate sources of information for reliability before using that information. When referring to the ideas or findings of others, they cite their sources of information.


Science: EALR 4 Physical Science, Content Standard 9-11 PS3A

Although energy can be transferred from one object to another and can be transformed from one form of energy to another form, the total energy in a closed system remains the same. The concept of conservation of energy, applies to all physical and chemical changes.


Science: EALR 4 Earth and Space Science, Content Standard 9-11 ES2A

Global climate differences result from the uneven heating of Earth's surface by the Sun. Seasonal climate variations are due to the tilt of Earth's axis with respect to the plane of Earth's nearly circular orbit around the Sun.


Science: EALR 4 Earth and Space Science, Content Standard 9-11 ES2B

Climate is determined by energy transfer from the sun at and near Earth's surface. This energy transfer is influenced by dynamic processes such as cloud cover and Earth's rotation, as well as static conditions such as proximity to mountain ranges and the ocean. Human activities, such as burning of fossil fuels, also affect the global climate.


Science: EALR 4 Earth and Space Science, Content Standard 9-11 ES2C

Earth is a system that contains essentially a fixed amount of each stable chemical element existing in different chemical forms. Each element on Earth moves among reservoirs in the solid Earth, oceans, atmosphere, and organisms as part of biogeochemical cycles driven by energy from Earth's interior and from the Sun.


Science: EALR 4 Earth and Space Science, Content Standard 9-11 ES2D

The Earth does not have infinite resources; increasing human consumption impacts the natural processes that renew some resources and it depletes other resources including those that cannot be renewed.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 9-11 LS1B

The gradual combustion of carbon-containing compounds within cells, called cellular respiration, provides the primary energy source of living organisms; the combustion of carbon by burning of fossil fuels provides the primary energy source for most of modern society.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 9-11 LS2A

Matter cycles and energy flows through living and nonliving components in ecosystems. The transfer of matter and energy is important for maintaining the health and sustainability of an ecosystem.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 9-11 LS2B

Living organisms have the capacity to produce very large populations. Population density is the number of individuals of a particular population living in a given amount of space.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 9-11 LS2C

Population growth is limited by the availability of matter and energy found in resources, the size of the environment, and the presence of competing and/or predatory organisms.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 9-11 LS2D

Scientists represent ecosystems in the natural world using mathematical models.


Science: EALR 4 Life Science, Content Standard 9-11 LS2E

Interrelationships of organisms may generate ecosystems that are stable for hundreds or thousands of years. Biodiversity refers to the different kinds of organisms in specific ecosystems or on the planet as a whole.
