#### 8.2: Students use the process of science inquiry.

8.2.3: Use basic mathematics and statistics (e.g., operations, mean, median, mode, range, and estimation) to interpret quantitative data

8.2.4: Design and conduct a scientific investigation (e.g., making systematic observations, making accurate measurements, identifying and controlling variables)

#### 8.3: Students understand the basic concepts and principles of physical science.

8.3.2: Explain the relationship between phases of matter and temperature

8.3.3: Interpret the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object (e.g., convection currents, orbital motion, tides)

8.3.4: Explain how all objects exert gravitational force and this force is affected by the distance between the masses of the objects

8.3.5: Identify when heat can be transferred by conduction, convection, or radiation.

8.3.6: Explain the characteristic properties (e.g., wavelength, frequency) and behaviors (e.g., reflection, refraction) of waves

#### 8.4: Students understand the basic concepts and principles of life science.

8.4.1: Identify the evidence of biological evolution. (e.g., adaptation, radiation, extinction) as found in the fossil record

#### 8.5: Students understand the basic concepts and principles of earth and space science.

8.5.1: Explain how factors (i.e., fronts, winds, air masses, air pressure, humidity, temperature, location) affect weather

8.5.2: Understand the rock cycle

8.5.3: Explain the water cycle

8.5.6: Identify a variety of methods (e.g., rock sequences, fossil correlation, radiometric dating) used to determine geologic time

8.5.7: Explain the changes Earth has undergone over geologic time (e.g., fossil record, plate tectonics, climate change, glaciation)

8.5.8: Explain how phenomena on Earth (i.e., day, year, seasons, lunar phases, eclipses, tides) are related to the position and motion of the Sun, Moon, and Earth

8.5.9: Identify characteristics of stars (e.g., color, size, temperature, life cycle)

8.5.10: Identify the composition (e.g., stars, galaxies) and scale of the universe
