Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

SC (9-12) Earth and Space Elective
5. Discuss various theories for the origin, formation, and changing nature of the universe and our solar system.
  • Explaining the nebular hypothesis for formation of planets, the big bang theory, and the steady state theory
  • Relating Hubble's law to the concept of an ever-expanding universe
  • Describing the impact of meteor, asteroid, and comet bombardment on planetary and lunar development
    SS2010 (7) Geography
    11. Explain the cultural concept of natural resources and changes in spatial distribution, quantity, and quality through time and by location.
  • Evaluating various cultural viewpoints regarding the use or value of natural resources
  • Examples: salt and gold as valued commodities, petroleum product use and the invention of the internal combustion engine
  • Identifying issues regarding depletion of nonrenewable resources and the sustainability of renewable resources
  • Examples: ocean shelf and Arctic exploration for petroleum, hybrid engines in cars, wind-powered generators, solar collection panels
    SC2015 (9-12) Biology
    8. Develop and use models to describe the cycling of matter (e.g., carbon, nitrogen, water) and flow of energy (e.g., food chains, food webs, biomass pyramids, ten percent law) between abiotic and biotic factors in ecosystems.
    SC2015 (9-12) Earth and Space Science
    2. Engage in argument from evidence to compare various theories for the formation and changing nature of the universe and our solar system (e.g., Big Bang Theory, Hubble's law, steady state theory, light spectra, motion of distant galaxies, composition of matter in the universe).
    SC2015 (9-12) Environmental Science
    7. Analyze and interpret data to investigate how a single change on Earth's surface may cause changes to other Earth systems (e.g., loss of ground vegetation causing an increase in water runoff and soil erosion).
    SC2015 (9-12) Environmental Science
    8. Engage in an evidence-based argument to explain how over time Earth's systems affect the biosphere and the biosphere affects Earth's systems (e.g., microbial life increasing the formation of soil; corals creating reefs that alter patterns of erosion and deposition along coastlines).
    SC2015 (9-12) Environmental Science
    9. Develop and use models to trace the flow of water, nitrogen, and phosphorus through the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.
