HS.LS.2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
HS.LS.2.1: Use mathematical and/or computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
HS.LS.2.2: Use mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems of different scales.
HS.LS.2.4: Use a mathematical representation to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
HS.LS.2.6: Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem.
HS.LS.2.7: Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment biodiversity.
HS.ESS.2: Earth?s Systems
HS.ESS.2.1: Develop a model to illustrate how Earth?s internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features.
HS.ESS.2.2: Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth?s surface can create feedbacks and interactions that cause changes to other Earth?s systems.
HS.ESS.2.3: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth?s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.
HS.ESS.2.4: Analyze and interpret data to explore how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth?s systems result in changes in atmosphere and climate.
HS.ESS.2.5: Plan and conduct an investigation of the properties of water and its effects on Earth materials and surface processes.
HS.ESS.2.6: Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.
HS.ESS.3: Earth and Human Activities
HS.ESS.3.3: Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationship among management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity.
HS.ESS.3.4: Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces the impacts of human activities on natural systems.
