Standards and Objectives
SC.10.4: 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 and the earth and space sciences, and apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.
SC.10.4.2: identify and explain the structure and function of cell organelles (e.g., Golgi bodies, endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, chloroplasts, ribosomes, lysosomes, vacuoles).
SC.10.4.4: identify mechanisms for the movement of materials into and out of cells (e.g., active and passive transport, endo- and exocytosis).
SC.10.4.5: explore the discovery of DNA and its structure by constructing a model to demonstrate the nucleotide bonding and the double helix structure.
SC.10.4.6: relate the role of DNA analysis to genetic disorders, forensic science, molecular genetics, and biotechnology (e.g., protein synthesis, heredity, cell division, cellular functions).
SC.10.4.7: review principles of genetics (e.g., number of chromosomes, mutations, crossover, Punnett squares, linkage).
SC.10.4.10: recognize that fossil records provide a scientific explanation for variation in the species and common ancestors.
SC.10.4.11: relate the role of natural selection to the development, diversity and or extinction of a species.
SC.10.4.12: construct diagrams showing energy flow and cycles of matter between chemical and biological systems including photosynthesis, stored chemical energy, decomposition, carbon and nitrogen cycles.
SC.10.4.16: trace matter and energy flow through the respiration process (e.g., ATP, carbon, oxygen, water).
SC.10.4.17: investigate the properties of solutions including density, conductivity, solubility, concentration, pH and colligative properties.
SC.10.4.18: differentiate among physical, chemical and nuclear changes and reactions.
SC.10.4.19: investigate the relationships among temperature, pressure and volume in gases and interpret graphs that depict these relationships (e.g., Charles’ Law, Boyle’s Law, Gay-Lussac’s Law).
SC.10.4.21: compare and contrast the characteristics and uses of waves in various parts of the electromagnetic spectrum; calculate the frequency of a particular wavelength.
SC.10.4.22: summarize the relationship between frequency and speed (e.g., Doppler effect).
SC.10.4.23: qualitatively explain the relationship between electricity and magnetism and describe how electrical components of a circuit function.
SC.10.4.24: qualitatively and quantitatively describe the conservation of energy (e.g., thermal, chemical, mechanical).
SC.10.4.25: apply Newton’s Laws of Motion to depict the relationship among rate, force, momentum, work, and time using kinematics graph and mathematical models.
SC.10.4.26: describe and quantify how machines can provide mechanical advantages.
SC.10.4.27: determine the effect of different forces on vibrating systems (e.g., pendulums, springs).
SC.10.4.30: relate the cause of tides to their height and frequency.
SC.10.4.34: discuss theories for the causes of plate tectonics.
SC.10.4.35: discuss physical and chemical relationships between minerals in rock cycle.
SC.10.4.36: investigate fossils as evidence for evolution and indicators of paleo-environments.
SC.10.4.37: compare and contrast morphological features of fossils to present-day organisms.
SC.10.4.38: use fossil evidence to estimate the relative and absolute ages of rock layers.
