SB1: Students develop an understanding of the characteristic properties of matter and the relationship of these properties to their structure and behavior.

SB1.1: describing atoms and their base components (i.e., protons, neutrons, electrons).

 Element Builder

SB2: Students develop an understanding that energy appears in different forms, can be transformed from one form to another, can be transferred or moved from one place or system to another, may be unavailable for use, and is ultimately conserved.

SB2.1: applying the concepts of heat transfer (i.e., conduction, convection, radiation) to Alaskan dwellings.

 Calorimetry Lab
 Herschel Experiment

SB2.2: recognizing simple electrical circuits.

 Circuit Builder

SB3: Students develop an understanding of the interactions between matter and energy, including physical, chemical, and nuclear changes, and the effects of these interactions on physical systems.

SB3.1: recognizing that a chemical reaction has taken place.

 Chemical Changes

SB3.3: recognizing that atoms emit and absorb electromagnetic radiation.

 Star Spectra

SB4: Students develop an understanding of motions, forces, their characteristics and relationships, and natural forces and their effects.

SB4.1: explaining the relationship of motion to an object’s mass, and the applied force.

 Fan Cart Physics
 Free-Fall Laboratory

SB4.2: recognizing that the gravitational attraction between objects is proportional to their masses and decreasing with their distance.

 Gravitational Force
 Pith Ball Lab

SB4.3: describing the interactions of waves (i.e., reflection, refraction, wave addition).

 Basic Prism
 Longitudinal Waves
 Refraction
 Ripple Tank
 Sound Beats and Sine Waves

SC1: Students develop an understanding of how science explains changes in life forms over time, including genetics, heredity, the process of natural selection, and biological evolution.

SC1.1: recognizing that all organisms have chromosomes made of DNA and that DNA determines traits.

 Human Karyotyping

SC1.2: using probabilities to recognize patterns of inheritance (e.g., Punnett Squares).

 Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium
 Microevolution
 Mouse Genetics (One Trait)
 Mouse Genetics (Two Traits)

SC1.3: inferring evolutionary pathways from evidence (e.g., fossils, geologic samples, recorded history).

 Human Evolution - Skull Analysis

SC2: Students develop an understanding of the structure, function, behavior, development, life cycles, and diversity of living organisms.

SC2.3: stating the function of major physiological systems (i.e., circulatory, excretory, digestive, respiratory, reproductive, nervous, immune, endocrine, musculoskeletal, and integumentary).

 Circulatory System
 Digestive System

SC3: Students develop an understanding that all organisms are linked to each other and their physical environments through the transfer and transformation of matter and energy.

SC3.1: describing the carbon and nitrogen cycle within an ecosystem and how the continual input of energy from sunlight keeps the process going.

 Carbon Cycle
 Food Chain

SC3.3: identifying dynamic factors (e.g., carrying capacity, limiting factors, biodiversity, and productivity) that affect population size.

 Coral Reefs 1 - Abiotic Factors
 Coral Reefs 2 - Biotic Factors
