Nature of Science
Scientists evaluate multiple explanations for the same phenomena to determine their differences, similarities, strengths, and weaknesses, and evaluating the validity of conclusions based on experimental results. They evaluate the validity of conclusions based on experimental results. Students should analyze scientific investigations and data presented in passages like those found in the science section of the ACT (e.g., Data Representation, Research Summaries, and Conflicting Viewpoint passages) to evaluate scientific explanations.
Students will apply scientific literacy and thinking skills to evaluate theoretical models, inferences, and experimental results found in various experimental designs including, but not limited to, those found in sample ACT science passages.
