Know and apply concepts that describe how living things interact with each other and with their environment. This goal is comprised of key concepts and principles in the life, physical and earth/space sciences that have considerable explanatory and predictive power for scientists and non-scientists alike. These ideas have been thoroughly studied and have stood the test of time. Knowing and being able to apply these concepts, principles and processes help students understand what they observe in nature and through scientific experimentation. A working knowledge of these concepts and principles allows students to relate new subject matter to material previously learned and to create deeper and more meaningful levels of understanding.

Learning Objectives Grades 9-10

Know and apply concepts that describe how living things interact with each other and with their environment:

  • Compare physical, ecological and behavioral factors that influence interactions and interdependence of organisms.
  • Simulate and analyze factors that influence the size and stability of populations within ecosystems (e.g., birth rate, death rate, predation, migration patterns).

Learning Objectives Grades 11-12

Know and apply concepts that describe how living things interact with each other and with their environment:

  • Analyze and explain biodiversity issues and the causes and effects of extinction.
  • Compare and predict how life forms can adapt to changes in the environment by applying concepts of change and constancy (e.g., variations within a population increase the likelihood of survival under new conditions).
