Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Evaluate the evidence for the role of group behavior on individual and species’ chances to survive and reproduce.
Use mathematical and/or computational models to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales.
Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem.
Use evidence from mathematical representations to explain factors that affect population dynamics and biodiversity.
