21st Century Science
SC.O.8.2.02: examine and describe the structures and functions of cell organelles.
SC.O.8.2.03: explain how the circulatory, respiratory and reproductive systems work together in the human body.
SC.O.8.2.04: compare the variations in cells, tissues and organs of the circulatory, respiratory and reproductive systems of different organisms.
SC.O.8.2.05: discuss how living cells obtain the essentials of life through chemical reactions of fermentation, respiration and photosynthesis.
SC.O.8.2.07: demonstrate the basic principles of genetics; introduce Mendel?s law, monohybrid crosses, production of body and sex cells (mitosis/meiosis), genes, chromosomes, and inherited traits.
SC.O.8.2.09: organize groups of unknown organisms based on observable characteristics (e.g., create dichotomous keys).
SC.O.8.2.10: trace matter and energy flow in a food web as it flows from sunlight to producers and consumers, design an environment in which the chemical and energy needs for the growth, reproduction and development of plants are met (e.g., food pyramids, decomposition).
SC.O.8.2.13: calculate the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons and use the information to construct a Bohr model of the atom.
SC.O.8.2.14: classify elements into their families based upon their valence electrons.
SC.O.8.2.15: evaluate the variations in diffusion rates and examine the effect of changing temperatures.
SC.O.8.2.16: conduct and classify chemical reactions by reaction type (e.g., synthesis, decomposition, single replacement or double replacement); energy type (e.g., endothermic and exothermic); and write word equations for the chemical reactions.
SC.O.8.2.19: explain the Doppler effect (e.g., sound).
SC.O.8.2.21: relate the conservation of energy theory to energy transformations (e.g., electrical/heat, or mechanical/heat).
SC.O.8.2.22: quantitatively represent work, power, pressure (e.g., Work=Force x distance, Power=Work/time, or pressure=force/area) from collected data.
SC.O.8.2.23: graph and interpret the relationships of distance versus time, speed versus time, and acceleration versus time.
SC.O.8.2.25: illustrate and calculate the mechanical advantage of simple machines.
SC.O.8.2.28: determine the impact of oceans on weather and climate; relate global patterns of atmospheric movement on local weather.
SC.O.8.2.29: analyze the forces of tectonics, weathering and erosion that have shaped the earth?s surface.
SC.O.8.2.32: explain phenomena associated with motions in sun-earth-moon system (e.g., eclipses, tides, or seasons).
SC.O.8.3.06: given a current science-technology-societal issue, construct and defend potential solutions.
