21st Century Science
SC.O.ES.2: Students will demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories and models as delineated in the objectives. demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology, earth/environmental science and astronomy. apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.
SC.O.ES.2.2: analyze seismic, density, gravity, and magnetic data to explain the structure of the earth.
SC.O.ES.2.4: analyze radiometric dating and rock and fossil evidence to determine the age of substances.
SC.O.ES.2.5: use chemical and physical properties to distinguish between common minerals and explain their economic uses.
SC.O.ES.2.9: predict geologic activity associated with specific plate boundaries and interactions.
SC.O.ES.2.10: analyze modern and historical seismic information to determine epicenter location and magnitude of earthquakes.
SC.O.ES.2.11: evaluate current explanations for mechanisms, which drive the motion of plates (convection, slab-pull, plate push).
SC.O.ES.2.12: relate the effect of degradation and tectonic forces on the earth?s surface features, i.e.,
SC.O.ES.2.12.b: physical features of the ocean floor,
SC.O.ES.2.12.c: life with the oceans.
SC.O.ES.2.13: construct and/or interpret information on topographic maps.
SC.O.ES.2.15: compare and contrast characteristics of the various oceans, including their lateral and vertical motions.
SC.O.ES.2.16: analyze the evolution of the ocean floor including ocean crust, sedimentation, active and passive continental margins.
SC.O.ES.2.18: investigate to explain heat transfer in the atmosphere and its relationship to meteorological processes (e.g., pressure, winds, evaporation, condensation, or precipitation).
SC.O.ES.2.20: use meteorological evidence and weather maps (including air masses, wind, barometric pressure, and temperature data) to forecast weather.
SC.O.ES.2.21: examine global change over time, i.e.,
SC.O.ES.2.21.b: global warming,
SC.O.ES.2.22: apply Newton?s Law of Universal Gravitation to the motion of celestial objects to explain phenomenon observed in the sun-earth-moon system.
SC.O.ES.2.23: analyze several origin theories of the solar system and universe and use them to explain the celestial bodies and their movements.
SC.O.ES.2.27: evaluate the potential conflicts, which arise between societal reliance on natural resources and the need to act as responsible stewards to reclaim the earth, including disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
SC.O.ES.2.28: research alternative energy sources and evaluate the ecological, environmental and economic cost-benefit ratio.
