What are the Arizona Science Standards?
This new set of standards in Arizona was designed around “Three Dimensional Science Classrooms”
The Three dimensions are Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas
The Three Dimensions
Science and Engineering Practices
The new standards call for students to engage in multifaceted science and engineering practices in more complex, relevant, and authentic ways. The science and engineering practices describe the process for how scientists investigate and build models and theories of the natural world or how engineers design and build systems. These practices reflect science and engineering as they are practiced and experienced. As students conduct investigations, they engage in multiple practices as they gather information to solve problems, answer their questions, reason about how the data provide evidence to support their understanding, and then communicate their understanding of phenomena.The science and engineering practices are:
- ask questions and define problems
- develop and use models
- plan and carry out investigations
- analyze and interpret data
- use mathematics and computational thinking
- construct explanations and design solutions
- engage in argument from evidence
- obtain, evaluate, and communicate information
Crosscutting concepts cross boundaries between science disciplines and provide an organizational framework to connect knowledge from various disciplines into a coherent and scientifically based view of the world. They build bridges between science and other disciplines and connect core ideas and practices throughout the fields of science and engineering. Their purpose is to provide a lens to help students deepen their understanding of the core ideas as they make sense of phenomena in the natural and designed worlds. The crosscutting concepts are:
- cause and effect
- structure and function
- systems and system models
- stability and change
- scale, proportion, and quantity
- energy and matter
Disciplinary Core Ideas
The ten core ideas for Knowing Science center on understanding the causes of phenomena in physical, earth and space, and life science.The three core ideas for Using Science connect scientific principles, theories, and models; engineering and technological applications; and societal implications to the content knowledge to support that understanding.
The complexity of each core idea develops as students’ progress through each grade band. These core ideas occur across grade levels and provide the background knowledge for students to develop sense-making around phenomena in the natural world.
The Core Ideas for Knowing Science are:
P1: All matter in the Universe is made of very small particles.
P2: Objects can affect other objects at a distance.
P3: Changing the movement of an object requires a net force to be acting on it.
P4: The total amount of energy in a closed system is always the same but can be transferred from one energy store to another during an event.
Earth and Space Science
E1: The composition of the Earth and its atmosphere and the natural and human processes occurring within them shape the Earth’s surface and its climate.
E2: The Earth and our solar system are a very small part of one of many galaxies within the Universe.
L1: Organisms are organized on a cellular basis and have a finite life span.
L2: Organisms require a supply of energy and materials for which they often depend on, or compete with, other organisms.
L3: Genetic information is passed down from one generation of organisms to another.
L4: The unity and diversity of organisms, living and extinct, is the result of evolution.
