    Analyzing and Interpreting Data
  • Grades 9-12: Analyze data using tools, technologies, and/or models (e.g., computational, mathematical) in order to make valid and reliable scientific claims or determine an optimal design solution.

  • Developing and Using Models
  • Grades 9-12: Develop and use a model based on evidence to illustrate the relationships between systems or between components of a system.

  • Planning and Carrying Out Investigations
  • Grades 9-12: Plan and conduct an investigation individually and collaboratively to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence, and in the design: decide on types, how much, and accuracy of data needed to produce reliable measurements and consider limitations on the precision of the data (e.g., number of trials, cost, risk, time), and refine the design accordingly.

  • Constructing Explanations
  • Grades 9-12: Construct an explanation based on valid and reliable evidence obtained from a variety of sources (including students' own investigations, models, theories, simulations, peer review) and the assumption that theories and laws that describe the natural world operate today as they did in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
