RST.68.1 Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to the precise details of explanations or descriptions (PS2MS1),(PS2MS3)
RST.68.3 Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks. (PS2MS1),(PS2MS2),(PS2MS5)
WHST.68.1 Write arguments focused on disciplinespecific content. (PS2MS4)
WHST.68.7 Conduct short research projects to answer a question (including a selfgenerated question), drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions that allow for multiple avenues of exploration. (PS2MS1),(PS2MS2),(PS2MS5)
MATHEMATICS
MP.2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (PS2MS1),(PS2MS2),(PS2MS3)
6.NS.C.5 Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values; use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in realworld contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation. (PS2MS1)
6.EE.A.2 Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers. (PS2MS1),(PS2MS2)
7.EE.B.3 Solve multistep reallife and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form, using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. (PS2MS1),(PS2MS2)
7.EE.B.4 Use variables to represent quantities in a realworld or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities. (PS2MS1),(PS2MS2)
