Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Standards: Science

The science standards include both NGSS and Michigan Science Standards.
HS-LS3 (0)
Education Level HS

Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits

HS-LS3-1 (2)
Education Level HS

Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring.

HS-LS3-2 (1)
Education Level HS

Make and defend a claim based on evidence that inheritable genetic variations may result from: (1) new genetic combinations through meiosis (2) viable errors occurring during replication and/or (3) mutations caused by environmental factors.

HS-LS3-3 (0)
Education Level HS

Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population.

HS-LS4 (0)
Education Level HS

Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity

HS-LS4-1 (0)
Education Level HS

Communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple lines of empirical evidence.

HS-LS4-2 (2)
Education Level HS

Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction (3) competition for limited resources and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment.

HS-LS4-3 (0)
Education Level HS

Apply concepts of statistics and probability to support explanations that organisms with an advantageous heritable trait tend to increase in proportion to organisms lacking this trait.

HS-LS4-4 (0)
Education Level HS

Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.

HS-LS4-5 (0)
Education Level HS

Evaluate the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in: (1) increases in the number of individuals of some species (2) the emergence of new species over time and (3) the extinction of other species.

HS-LS4-6 (0)
Education Level HS

Create or revise a simulation to test a solution to mitigate adverse impacts of human activity on biodiversity.

HS-PS1 (0)
Education Level HS

Matter and Its Interactions

HS-PS1-1 (1)
Education Level HS

Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.

HS-PS1-2 (0)
Education Level HS

Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms trends in the periodic table and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.

HS-PS1-3 (2)
Education Level HS

Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
