Know and apply concepts that describe the interaction between science, technology and society. 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 the interaction between science, technology and society:

  • Compare and contrast scientific inquiry and technological design as pure and applied sciences.
  • Analyze a particular occupation to identify decisions that may be influenced by a knowledge of science.
  • Analyze ways that resource management and technology can be used to accommodate population trends.
  • Analyze local examples of resource use, technology use or conservation programs; document findings; and make recommendations for improvements.
  • Evaluate claims derived from purported scientific studies used in advertising and marketing strategies.

Learning Objectives Grades 11-12

Know and apply concepts that describe the interaction between science, technology and society:

  • Analyze challenges created by international competition for increases in scientific knowledge and technological capabilities (e.g., patent issues, industrial espionage, technology obsolescence).
  • Analyze and describe the processes and effects of scientific and technological breakthroughs.
  • Design and conduct an environmental impact study, analyze findings and justify recommendations.
  • Analyze the costs, benefits and effects of scientific and technological policies at the local, state, national and global levels (e.g., genetic research, Internet access).
  • Assess how scientific and technological progress has affected other fields of study, careers and job markets and aspects of everyday life.
