Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades
Describe how scientists use models to explore relationships in natural systems (e.g., an ecosystem, river system, the solar system).
Given a model showing simple cause-and-effect relationships in a natural system, predict results that can be used to test the assumptions in the model (e.g., photosynthesis, water cycle, diffusion, infiltration).
Describe how scientists use models to explore relationships and make predictions about natural systems (e.g., weather conditions, the solar system).
Interpret data/observations; develop relationships among variables based on data/observations to design models as solutions.
Describe how engineers use models to develop new and improved technologies to solve problems.
Show how models are used to communicate and test design ideas and processes.
Develop descriptions, explanations, predictions, and models using evidence.
