High Academic Standards for Students
HS.L2U3.18: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate about the positive and negative ethical, social, economic, and political implications of human activity on the biodiversity of an ecosystem.
HS+B.L2U1.1: Develop a model showing the relationship between limiting factors and carrying capacity, and use the model to make predictions on how environmental changes impact biodiversity.
HS+B.L4U1.2: Engage in argument from evidence that changes in environmental conditions or human interventions may change species diversity in an ecosystem.
HS.L2U1.19: Develop and use models that show how changes in the transfer of matter and energy within an ecosystem and interactions between species may affect organisms and their environment.
HS+B.L2U1.3: Use mathematics and computational thinking to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy through trophic levels in an ecosystem.
HS.L1U1.20: Ask questions and/or make predictions based on observations and evidence to demonstrate how cellular organization, structure, and function allow organisms to maintain homeostasis.
HS+B.L1U1.4: Develop and use models to explain the interdependency and interactions between cellular organelles.
HS+B.L1U1.5: Analyze and interpret data that demonstrates the relationship between cellular function and the diversity of protein functions.
HS+B.L1U1.6: Develop and use models to show how transport mechanisms function in cells.
HS+B.L1U1.7: Develop and use models to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms (plant and animal).
HS.L2U1.21: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate data showing the relationship of photosynthesis and cellular respiration; flow of energy and cycling of matter.
HS+B.L2U1.8: Develop and use models to develop a scientific explanation that illustrates how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy and how cellular respiration breaks down macromolecules for use in metabolic processes.
HS.L1U1.22: Construct an explanation for how cellular division (mitosis) is the process by which organisms grow and maintain complex, interconnected systems.
HS.L1U3.23: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate the ethical, social, economic and/or political implications of the detection and treatment of abnormal cell function.
HS+B.L1U1.9: Develop and use a model to communicate how a cell copies genetic information to make new cells during asexual reproduction (mitosis).
HS.L3U1.24: Construct an explanation of how the process of sexual reproduction contributes to genetic variation.
HS.L3U1.25: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the causes and implications of DNA mutation.
HS.L3U3.26: Engage in argument from evidence regarding the ethical, social, economic, and/or political implications of a current genetic technology.
HS+B.L3U1.11: Construct an explanation for how the structure of DNA and RNA determine the structure of proteins that perform essential life functions.
HS+B.L3U1.12: Analyze and interpret data on how mutations can lead to increased genetic variation in a population.
HS.L4U1.27: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate evidence that describes how changes in frequency of inherited traits in a population can lead to biological diversity.
HS.L4U1.28: Gather, evaluate, and communicate multiple lines of empirical evidence to explain the mechanisms of biological evolution.
HS+B.L4U1.13: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate multiple lines of empirical evidence to explain the change in genetic composition of a population over successive generations.
HS+B.L4U1.14: Construct an explanation based on scientific evidence that the process of natural selection can lead to adaption.
