Sunshine State Standards
SC.A.1.4: The student understands that all matter has observable, measurable properties.
SC.A.1.4.1: knows that the electron configuration in atoms determines how a substance reacts and how much energy is involved in its reactions.
SC.A.1.4.3: knows that a change from one phase of matter to another involves a gain or loss of energy.
SC.A.1.4.4: experiments and determines that the rates of reaction among atoms and molecules depend on the concentration, pressure, and temperature of the reactants and the presence or absence of catalysts.
SC.A.1.4.5: knows that connections (bonds) form between substances when outer-shell electrons are either transferred or shared between their atoms, changing the properties of substances.
SC.A.2.4: The student understands the basic principles of atomic theory.
SC.A.2.4.3: knows that a number of elements have heavier, unstable nuclei that decay, spontaneously giving off smaller particles and waves that result in a small loss of mass and release a large amount of energy.
SC.A.2.4.5: knows that elements are arranged into groups and families based on similarities in electron structure and that their physical and chemical properties can be predicted.
SC.B.1.4: The student recognizes that energy may be changed in form with varying efficiency.
SC.B.1.4.3: knows that temperature is a measure of the average translational kinetic energy of motion of the molecules in an object.
SC.B.1.4.7: knows that the total amount of usable energy always decreases, even though the total amount of energy is conserved in any transfer.
SC.C.1.4: The student understands that types of motion may be described, measured, and predicted.
SC.C.1.4.2: knows that any change in velocity is an acceleration.
SC.C.2.4: The student understands that the types of force that act on an object and the effect of that force can be described, measured, and predicted.
SC.C.2.4.2: knows that electrical forces exist between any two charged objects.
SC.C.2.4.3: describes how magnetic force and electrical force are two aspects of a single force.
SC.C.2.4.6: explains that all forces come in pairs commonly called action and reaction.
SC.D.1.4: The student recognizes that processes in the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere interact to shape the Earth.
SC.D.1.4.1: knows how climatic patterns on Earth result from an interplay of many factors (Earth’s topography, its rotation on its axis, solar radiation, the transfer of heat energy where the atmosphere interfaces with lands and oceans, and wind and ocean currents).
SC.D.1.4.2: knows that the solid crust of Earth consists of slow- moving, separate plates that float on a denser, molten layer of Earth and that these plates interact with each other, changing the Earth’s surface in many ways (e.g., forming mountain ranges and rift valleys, causing earthquake and volcanic activity, and forming undersea mountains that can become ocean islands).
SC.E.1.4: The student understands the interaction and organization in the Solar System and the universe and how this affects life on Earth.
SC.E.1.4.1: understands the relationships between events on Earth and the movements of the Earth, its moon, the other planets, and the sun.
SC.E.2.4: The student recognizes the vastness of the universe and the Earth's place in it.
SC.E.2.4.1: knows that the stages in the development of three categories of stars are based on mass: stars that have the approximate mass of our sun, stars that are two-to-three-stellar masses and develop into neutron stars, and stars that are five-to-six-stellar masses and develop into black holes.
SC.F.1.4: The student describes patterns of structure and function in living things.
SC.F.1.4.7: knows that organisms respond to internal and external stimuli.
SC.F.2.4: The student understands the process and importance of genetic diversity.
SC.F.2.4.1: understands the mechanisms of asexual and sexual reproduction and knows the different genetic advantages and disadvantages of asexual and sexual reproduction.
SC.F.2.4.2: knows that every cell contains a “blueprint” coded in DNA molecules that specify how proteins are assembled to regulate cells.
SC.F.2.4.3: understands the mechanisms of change (e.g., mutation and natural selection) that lead to adaptations in a species and their ability to survive naturally in changing conditions and to increase species diversity.
SC.G.1.4: The student understands the competitive, interdependent, cyclic nature of living things in the environment.
SC.G.1.4.2: understands how the flow of energy through an ecosystem made up of producers, consumers, and decomposers carries out the processes of life and that some energy dissipates as heat and is not recycled.
SC.G.2.4: The student understands the consequences of using limited natural resources.
SC.G.2.4.3: understands how genetic variation of offspring contributes to population control in an environment and that natural selection ensures that those who are best adapted to their surroundings survive to reproduce.
SC.G.2.4.4: knows that the world ecosystems are shaped by physical factors that limit their productivity.
