S7L5: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information from multiple sources to explain the theory of evolution of living organisms through inherited characteristics.
a. Use mathematical representations to evaluate explanations of how natural selection leads to changes in specific traits of populations over successive generations.
Referencing data should be obtained from multiple sources including, but not limited to, existing research and simulations. Students should be able to calculate means, represent this data in a table or graph, and reference it when explaining the principles of natural selection.)
b. Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variation and environmental factors influence the probability of survival and reproduction of species.
c. Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, and extinction of organisms and their relationships to modern organisms.
Evidence of evolution found in comparisons of current/modern organisms such as homologous structures, DNA, and fetal development will be addressed in high school.)
