21st Century Science
SC.O.PS.2: Students will demonstrate knowledge understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories, and models delineated in the objectives. demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology, earth/environmental science, and astronomy; and apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life.
SC.O.PS.2.1: apply dimensional analysis and scientific notation in making metric calculations
SC.O.PS.2.2: predict chemical and physical properties of an element using its position in the periodic table.
SC.O.PS.2.4: relate molecular motion and the amount of kinetic energy to the temperature of a system.
SC.O.PS.2.5: characterize compounds as ionic, nonpolar covalent or polar covalent and distinguish the difference between molecular and ionic structures
SC.O.PS.2.7: determine the coefficients and classify the reaction type of a chemical equation (e.g., synthesis or combination, decomposition, single replacement, or double replacement and combustion).
SC.O.PS.2.8: cite evidence for the occurrence of a chemical reaction from student generated experimental data (e.g., production of color, light, heat, sound, smell, gas, or precipitate).
SC.O.PS.2.9: qualitatively and quantitatively describe the law of conservation of mass/energy (e.g., mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical and nuclear)
SC.O.PS.2.10: compare the types of particles liberated in nuclear decay and interpret half-life graphs (e.g., radiometric dating, nuclear medicine and nuclear waste disposal)
SC.O.PS.2.11: experimentally demonstrate the relationship between heat and temperature (i.e., specific heat, melting point, latent heat)
SC.O.PS.2.15: conduct experiments to verify the inverse square relationship between gravity, distance and intensity of light and sound
SC.O.PS.2.16: experimentally obtain data and apply graphs, vectors and mathematical models to quantify Newton?s Laws of motion (i.e., velocity, acceleration, force, momentum, and time)
SC.O.PS.2.17: conduct an experiment to calculate the mechanical advantages, work in/out and efficiencies of simple machines
SC.O.PS.2.18: design, conduct and analyze experiments to determine variables affecting the period of pendulums.
SC.O.PS.2.19: differentiate between transverse and longitudinal waves and model examples of each type and relate to water, light and sound waves
SC.O.PS.2.20: examine seismographic and geologic evidence to determine structure, composition and age of the Earth
SC.O.PS.2.21: predict and present a weather forecast using a weather map and meteorological data
SC.O.PS.2.23: research and organize evidence to support the theory and effects of plate tectonics including density, force, mountain building, fossil and/or magnetic evidence
SC.O.PS.2.24: apply fusion, heat transfer, gravity, and electromagnetism to the sun?s evolution and its impact on the solar system
SC.O.PS.2.25: investigate theories for the origin and configuration of the solar system (e.g. nebular theory, Earth-Moon formation, heliocentric and geocentric models)
