Students who demonstrate understanding can:


The performance expectations above were developed using the following elements from the NRC document A Framework for K12 Science Education:  
Science and Engineering PracticesAsking Questions and Defining ProblemsUsing Mathematics and Computational ThinkingMathematical and computational thinking at the 912 level builds on K8 and progresses to using algebraic thinking and analysis, a range of linear and nonlinear functions including trigonometric functions, exponentials and logarithms, and computational tools for statistical analysis to analyze, represent, and model data. Simple computational simulations are created and used based on mathematical models of basic assumptions.
