1.1 Quantities can be expressed and compared using ratios and rates
1.2 Formulate, represent and use algorithms with positive rational numbers with flexibility, accuracy and efficiency
1.3 In the real number system, rational numbers have a unique location on the number line and in space
2.1 Algebraic expressions can be used to generalize properties of arithmetic
2.2 Variables are used to represent unknown quantities within equations and inequalities
Math (Grade 8)
2.1 Linear functions model situations with a constant rate of change and can be represented numerically, algebraically and graphically
Math (Grade 7)
1.1 Proportional reasoning involves comparisons and multiplicative relationships among ratios
1.2 Formulate, represent and use algorithms with positive rational numbers with flexibility, accuracy and efficiency
2.1 Properties of arithmetic can be used to generate equivalent expressions

Science (Grade 6)
1.4 Distinguish among, explain and apply the relationships among mass, weight, volume and density
Science (Grade 8)
1.1 Identify and calculate the direction and magnitude of forces that act on an object, and explain the results in the object’s change of motion
1.2 There are different forms of energy, and those forms of energy can be changed from one form to another—but total energy is conserved

Reading, Writing, and Communicating (Grade 6)
1.1 Successful group discussions require planning and participation by all
4.1 Individual and group research projects require obtaining information on a topic from a variety of sources and organizing it for presentation
Reading, Writing, and Communicating (Grade 7)
1.2 Small and large group discussions rely on active listening and the effective contributions of all participants
4.1 Answering a research question logically begins with obtaining and analyzing information from a variety of sources

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
MS-ETS1-1. Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful
solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment
that may limit possible solutions.
MS-ETS1-3. Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to
identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for
success.
