  4. HS.4S.C2.PO4: I can describe how meiosis and fertilization maintain genetic differences. 

  5. HS.4S.C4.PO2: I can explain how genotypic and phenotypic differences can result in changes that may help or hurt an organism's success in an environment. 

Quarter 3 Standards:
  1. 10.RST.05: I can analyze relationships among concepts in a text including relationships among key terms.

  2. HS.4S.C3.PO1: I can identify the relationships among organisms within populations, communities, ecosystems, and biomes.

  4. HS.4S.C3.PO3: I can assess how the size and the rate of growth of a population are determined by birth rate, death rate, immigration, emigration, and carrying capacity of the environment.

  5. HS.4S.C4.PO1: I can identify the components of natural selection which can lead to speciation. 

  6. HS.4S.C4.PO3: I can describe how the continuing operation of natural selection triggers a population's ability to adapt to changes in the environment and leads to biodiversity and the origin of new species. 

  7. HS.4S.C4.PO4: I can predict how a change in an environmental factor can affect the number and diversity of species in an ecosystem.

  10. HS.4S.C5.PO5: I can describe the levels of organization of living things from cells, through tissues, organs, organ systems, organism, populations, and communities to ecosystems. 

Quarter 4 Standards:
  1. 10.RST.09: I can compare and contrast the results of different scientists experiments (and to my own using peer review).

  2. HS.3S.C2.PO3: I can support a position on a science or technology issue.

  6. HS.1S.C2.PO1: I can demonstrate safe and ethical procedures (e.g., use and care of technology, materials, organisms) and behavior in all science inquiries.

  7. HS.1S.C2.PO2: I can identify the resources needed to conduct an investigation.

  8. HS.1S.C2.PO3: I can design an appropriate protocol for testing a hypothesis.

  9. HS.1S.C3.PO1: I can interpret data that show a variety of possible relationships between variables.

  10. HS.1S.C3.PO2: I can evaluate whether investigational data support or do not support the proposed hypothesis.

  11. HS.1S.C3.PO4: I can evaluate the design of an investigation to identify possible sources of procedural error.

  12. HS.1S.C3.PO5: Design models (conceptual or physical) of the following to represent "real world" scenarios: collisions, carbon cycle, water cycle, and phase change.

  13. HS.1S.C3.PO7: Propose further investigations based on the findings of a conducted investigation.

  14. HS.1S.C4.PO1: For a specific investigation, I can choose an appropriate method for communicating the results.
