Priority Academic Student Skills

PI.1.2: Use appropriate tools with accuracy and precision (e.g., metric ruler, graduated cylinder, thermometer, balance, spring scale, stopwatch, probeware, graphing calculators, digital cameras, computer simulations) when measuring objects and/or events.

PI.1.3: Use appropriate International Systems of Units (SI) (i.e., meters, liters, degrees Celsius, and seconds) and SI prefixes (i.e., micro-, milli-, centi-, and kilo-) when measuring mass volume and temperature.

PI.2.1: Using observable properties, place an object or event (i.e., chemical versus physical, charge, electron level, and reaction types) into a classification system.

PI.2.2: Identify properties by which a classification system is based.

PI.3.2: Identify the independent variables, dependent variables, controlled variables, and control in an experiment.

PI.3.3: Use mathematics to show relationships within a given set of observations (i.e., conservation of mass and stoichiometry).

PI.3.4: Identify a hypothesis for a given problem in chemistry investigations.

PI.4.3: Interpret data tables, line, bard, trend, and/or circle graphs from existing science research or student experiments.

PI.4.8: Identify and/or create an appropriate graph or chart from collected data, tables, or written description.

PI.4.8.a: Translate quantitative information expressed in words into visual form (e.g., a table or chart).

PI.5.2: Select predictions based on models (e.g., electron configuration, bonding, compound formation), and when appropriate, apply mathematical reasoning to make accurate predictions.

Covalent Bonds

Electron Configuration

Ionic Bonds

PI.5.3: Compare a given model to the physical world.

PI.6.2: Design and conduct scientific investigations in which variables are identified and controlled.

Pendulum Clock

Real-Time Histogram

Sight vs. Sound Reactions

PI.6.4: Inquiries should lead to the formulation of explanations or models (physical, conceptual, and mathematical). In answering questions, students should engage in discussions (based on scientific knowledge, the use of logic, and evidence from the investigation) and arguments that encourage the revision of their explanations, leading to further inquiry.
