8-PS2-4 Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects and the distance between them.
8-PS4-3 Communicate information to support the claim that digital devices are used to improve our understanding of how waves transmit information.

8-LS1-4 Use arguments, based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning, to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively.
8-LS3-1 Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism.
8-LS4-1 Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction,and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operated in the past as they do today.
8-LS4-2 Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer their ancestral relationships.
8-LS4-4 Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individual's probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment.
