College and Career Ready Standards
SC.HS.11.1.A: Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the stages of stars, like the sun, and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun's core to release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation.
SC.HS.11.1.B: Construct an explanation of the Big Bang theory based on astronomical evidence of light spectra, motion of distant galaxies, and composition of matter in the universe.
SC.HS.11.1.C: Communicate scientific ideas about the way stars, throughout their stellar stages, produce elements.
SC.HS.11.1.D: Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.
SC.HS.12.2.B: Use a model to describe how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth’s systems result in changes in climate.
SC.HS.12.2.C: Analyze geoscience data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence-based forecast of the current rate and scale of global or regional climate changes.
SC.HS.13.3.A: Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth's surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.
SC.HS.13.3.B: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth's interior to describe the cycling of matter.
SC.HS.13.3.D: Plan and conduct an investigation of the properties of water and their effects on Earth materials, surface processes, and groundwater systems.
SC.HS.13.3.E: Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon and other nutrients among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere, today and in the geological past.
SC.HS.14.4.C: Develop a model to illustrate how Earth’s internal and surface processes operate over time to form, modify, and recycle continental and ocean floor features.
SC.HS.15.5.C: Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationships among management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity.
SC.HS.15.5.D: Evaluate or refine a technological solution that increases positive impacts of human activities on natural systems.
SC.HS.15.5.E: Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and tradeoffs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
SC.HS.15.5.F: Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and the degree to which those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
