HSESS14 Earth's Place in the Universe 

Students who demonstrate understanding can:


The performance expectation above was developed using the following elements from the NRC document A Framework for K12 Science Education:  
Science and Engineering PracticesUsing Mathematical and Computational ThinkingMathematical and computational thinking in 9–12 builds on K–8 experiences 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.
