SC (7)  8. Describe the function of chromosomes. Identifying genes as parts of chromosomes that carry genetic traits  TC2 (68)  2. Publish digital products that communicate curriculum concepts. Examples: Web pages, videos, podcasts, multimedia presentations  TC2 (68)  5. Use basic features of word processing, spreadsheets, databases, and presentation software. Examples: word processing—reports, letters, brochures spreadsheets—discovering patterns, tracking spending, creating budgets databases—contact list of addresses and telephone numbers presentation software—slideshow  TC2 (68)  6. Select specific digital tools for completing curriculumrelated tasks. Examples: spreadsheet for budgets, word processing software for essays, probes for data
collection  TC2 (68)  11. Use digital tools and strategies to locate, collect, organize, evaluate, and synthesize
information. Examples: locating—Boolean searches, graphic organizers, spreadsheets, databases collecting—probeware, graphing calculators organizing—graphic organizers, spreadsheets evaluating—reviewing publication dates, determining credibility synthesizing—word processing software, conceptmapping software  TC2 (68)  13. Use digital tools to formulate solutions to authentic problems. Examples: electronic graphing tools, probes, spreadsheets  MA2015 (7)  1. Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas, and other quantities measured in like or different units. [7RP1] MA2201007070000102.jpg  MA2015 (7)  2. Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. [7RP2] a. Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin. [7RP2a] b. Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships. [7RP2b] c. Represent proportional relationships by equations. [7RP2c] Example: If total cost t is proportional to the number n of items purchased at a constant price p, the relationship between the total cost and the number of items can be expressed as t = pn. d. Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate. [7RP2d]  MA2015 (7)  3. Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. [7RP3] Examples: Sample problems may involve simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, and percent error.  SC2015 (7) Life Science  12. Construct and use models (e.g., monohybrid crosses using Punnett squares,
diagrams, simulations) to explain that genetic variations between parent and
offspring (e.g., different alleles, mutations) occur as a result of genetic
differences in randomly inherited genes located on chromosomes and that
additional variations may arise from alteration of genetic information.  SC2015 (7) Life Science  13. Construct an explanation from evidence to describe how genetic mutations
result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function
of an organism.
