IN.PS. Process Standards
PS.1. The Nature of Science: Students gain scientific knowledge by observing the natural and constructed world, performing and evaluating investigations, and communicating their findings. These principles should guide student work and be integrated into the curriculum along with the content standards on a daily basis.
PS.1.1. Make predictions and develop testable questions based on research and prior knowledge.
PS.1.2. Plan and carry out investigation—often over a period of several class lessons—as a class, in small groups or independently.
PS.1.8. Analyze data, using appropriate mathematical manipulation as required, and use it to identify patterns. Make inferences based on these patterns.
