1.2 Quantitative reasoning is used to make sense of quantities and their relationships
in problem situations.
2.2 Quantitative relationships in the real world can be modeled and solved using
4.1 Objects in the plane can be transformed, and those transformations can be
described and analyzed mathematically.
4.2 Concepts of similarity are foundational to geometry and its applications.
4.3 Objects in the plane can be described and analyzed algebraically.
4.4 Attributes of two- and three-dimensional objects are measurable and can be
4.5 Objects in the real world can be modeled using geometric concepts.
1.1 Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation describe the relationships among forces
acting on and between objects, their masses, and changes in their motion – but
1.5 Energy exists in many forms such as mechanical, chemical, electrical, radiant,
thermal, and nuclear, that can be quantified and experimentally determined.
1.1 The historical method of inquiry to ask questions, evaluate primary and
secondary sources, critically analyze and interpret data, and develop
interpretations defended by evidence from a variety of primary and secondary
1.2 Analyze the key concepts of continuity and change, cause and effect, complexity,
unity and diversity over time
1.3 The significance of ideas as powerful forces throughout history

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
HS-ETS1-2. Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable
problems that can be solved through engineering.
HS-ETS1-3. Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and trade-offs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.
