|1.2.1- The student will identify meaningful, answerable scientific questions.
1.2.2- The student will pose meaningful, answerable scientific questions.(NTB)
1.2.3- The student will formulate a working hypothesis.
1.2.4- The student will test a working hypothesis.(NTB)
1.2.7- The student will use relationships discovered in the lab to explain phenomena observed outside the laboratory.
1.4.1- The student will organize data appropriately using techniques such as tables, graphs, and webs (for graphs: axes labeled with appropriate quantities, appropriate units on axes, axes labeled with appropriate intervals, independent and dependent variables on correct axes, appropriate title).
1.4.2- The student will analyze data to make predictions, decisions, or draw conclusions.
1.4.3- The student will use experimental data from various investigators to validate results.
1.4.4- The student will determine the relationships between quantities and develop the mathematical model that describes these relationships.
1.4.5- The student will check graphs to determine that they do not misrepresent results.
1.4.6- The student will describe trends revealed by data.
1.4.7- The student will determine the sources of error that limit the accuracy or precision of experimental results.

1.5.2- The student will explain scientific concepts and processes through drawing, writing, and/or oral communication.
1.5.3- The student will use computers and/or graphing calculators to produce the visual materials (tables, graphs, and spreadsheets) that will be used for communicating results.(NTB)
1.5.4- The student will use tables, graphs, and displays to support arguments and claims in both written and oral communication.
1.5.5- The student will create and/or interpret graphics. (scale drawings, photographs, digital images, field of view, etc.)
1.5.9- The student will communicate conclusions derived through a synthesis of ideas.
1.6.2- The student will use computers and/or graphing calculators to perform calculations for tables, graphs, or spreadsheets.(NTB)
1.7.4- The student will recognize mathematics as an integral part of the scientific process.(NTB)
3.1.2- The student will be able to discuss factors involved in the regulation of chemical activity as part of a homeostatic mechanism.
