West Virginia Standards

WV.SC.S.8.1. Nature of Science: Students will demonstrate an understanding of history and nature of science as a human endeavor encompassing the contributions of diverse cultures and scientists; demonstrate the ability to use the inquiry process to solve problems.
SC.O.8.1.4. Conduct and/or design investigations that incorporate the skills and attitudes and/or values of scientific inquiry (e.g., established research protocol, accurate record keeping, replication of results and peer review, objectivity, openness, skepticism, fairness, or creativity and logic).
SC.O.8.1.7. Design, conduct, evaluate and revise experiments (e.g., compose a question to be investigated, design a controlled investigation that produces numeric data, evaluate the data in the context of scientific laws and principles, construct a conclusion based on findings, propose revisions to investigations based on manipulation of variables and/or analysis of error, or communicate and defend the results and conclusions).
SC.O.8.1.8. Draw conclusions from a variety of data sources to analyze and interpret systems and models (e.g., use graphs and equations to measure and apply variables such as rate and scale, evaluate changes in trends and cycles, predict the influence of external variances such as potential sources of error, or interpret maps).
WV.SC.S.8.2. Content of Science: Students will demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories and models as delineated in the objectives, demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology, earth/environmental science, and astronomy, apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.
SC.O.8.2.27. Identify and explain the principle forces of plate tectonics and related geological events (e.g., earthquakes, volcanoes, or landforms).
SC.O.8.2.29. Analyze the forces of tectonics, weathering and erosion that have shaped the earth's surface.
WV.SC.S.8.3. Application of Science: Students will demonstrate the ability to use inquiry process to explore systems, models, and changes, demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence between science and technology, demonstrate an understanding of the utilization of technology to gather data and communicate designs, results and conclusions, demonstrate an understanding of personal and societal benefits of science, and an understanding of public policy decisions as related to health, population, resource and environmental issues.
SC.O.8.3.1. Synthesize concepts across various science disciplines to better understand the natural world (e.g., form and function, systems, or change over time).
SC.O.8.3.2. Investigate, compare and design scientific and technological solutions to personal and societal problems.
