New Mexico Standards

NM.I. Scientific Thinking and Practice: Understand the processes of scientific investigations and use inquiry and scientific ways of observing, experimenting, predicting, and validating to think critically.
I-C. Use mathematical ideas, tools, and techniques to understand scientific knowledge.
I-C.2a. Use probabilities, patterns, and relationships to explain data and observations.
NM.II. Content of Science: Earth and Space Science: Understand the structure of Earth, the solar system, and the universe, the interconnections among them, and the processes and interactions of Earth's systems.
II-B. Describe the structure of Earth and its atmosphere and explain how energy, matter, and forces shape Earth's systems.
II-B.1a. Structure of Earth: Know that Earth is composed of layers that include a crust, mantle, and core.
II-B.2a. Structure of Earth: Know that Earth's crust is divided into plates that move very slowly, in response to movements in the mantle.
II-B.7a. Changes to Earth: Know that landforms are created and change through a combination of constructive and destructive forces, including: weathering of rock and soil, transportation, deposition of sediment, and tectonic activity; similarities and differences between current and past processes on Earth's surface (e.g., erosion, plate tectonics, changes in atmospheric composition); impact of volcanoes and faults on New Mexico geology.
II-B.8a. Changes to Earth: Understand the history of Earth and how information about it comes from layers of sedimentary rock, including: sediments and fossils as a record of a very slowly changing world; evidence of asteroid impact, volcanic and glacial activity.
