    TC2 (9-12) Computer Applications
    12. Use digital tools to publish curriculum-related content.
    Examples: Web page authoring software, coding software, wikis, blogs, podcasts
    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) Environmental Science
    1. Investigate and analyze the use of nonrenewable energy sources (e.g., fossil fuels, nuclear, natural gas) and renewable energy sources (e.g., solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal) and propose solutions for their impact on the environment.
    SC2015 (9-12) Environmental Science
    16. Obtain and evaluate information from published results of scientific computational models to illustrate the relationships among Earth's systems and how these relationships may be impacted by human activity (e.g., effects of an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide on photosynthetic biomass, effect of ocean acidification on marine populations).
