G1 History and Nature of Science

  • SG Students develop an understanding of the history and nature of science.

    • SG1 Students develop an understanding that historical perspectives of scientific explanations demonstrate that scientific knowledge changes over time, building on prior knowledge.

    • SG2 Students develop an understanding that the advancement of scientific knowledge embraces innovation and requires empirical evidence, repeatable investigations, logical arguments, and critical review in striving for the best possible explanations of the natural world.

      • SG2.1 recognizing differences in results of repeated experiments.

    • SG3 Students develop an understanding that scientific knowledge is ongoing and subject to change as new evidence becomes available through experimental and/or observational confirmation(s).

    • SG4 Students develop an understanding that advancements in science depend on curiosity, creativity, imagination, and a broad knowledge base.
