OK.LS. LIFE SCIENCE
LS.3. Structure and Function in Living Systems - Living systems at all levels of organization demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function. The student will engage in investigations that integrate the process standards and lead to the discovery of the following objectives:
LS.3.2. Living systems are organized by levels of complexity (i.e., cells, organisms, and ecosystems).
OK.SPI. SCIENCE PROCESSES AND INQUIRY
SPI.4. Interpret and Communicate - Interpreting is the process of recognizing patterns in collected data by making inferences, predictions, or conclusions. Communicating is the process of describing, recording, and reporting experimental procedures and results to others. Communication may be oral, written, or mathematical and includes organizing ideas, using appropriate vocabulary, graphs, other visual representations, and mathematical equations. The student will accomplish these objectives to meet this process standard.
SPI.4.1. Report and record both quantitative/qualitative data in an appropriate method when given an experimental procedure or data.
SPI.5. Inquiry - Inquiry can be defined as the skills necessary to carry out the process of scientific thinking. In order for inquiry to occur students must have the opportunity to make observations, pose questions, formulate testable hypotheses, carry out experiments, and make conclusions based on evidence. The student will accomplish these objectives to meet this process standard.
SPI.5.2. Design and conduct experiments utilizing scientific processes.
