for Middle School Science

How
the TEKS are Integrated into the Lesson

(6.2)
(7.2) (8.2) The student uses scientific inquiry during field and
laboratory investigations. 
During the Activity,
students will calculate, interpret, and analyze the relationships
between mass, volume and concentration.
Students will also record their results in the worksheet that is
provided.

(8.3)
The students will analyze, review, and critique scientific explanations
using scientific evidence and information. 
During the Presentation,
students will learn the scientific explanations including the
hypotheses, quoted along with examples to simplify the scientific
concepts.

(6.4)
(7.4) (8.4) The student knows how to use a variety of tools and
methods to conduct science inquiry. 
Through the Presentation,
students will learn the different units of measurements which are
useful in analyzing and recording information.
Through the Activity,
students will use tools including beakers, stirrers and calculators.

TEKS
for Middle School Mathematics

How
the TEKS are Integrated into the Lesson

(6.2) (7.2) (8.2) The student multiplies and divides to solve
problems and justify solutions 
During the Activity,
students will use multiplication and division of whole numbers to
solve problems.

(6.8) (7.9) The
student solves application problems involving estimation and measurement.

During the Activity,
students will select and use appropriate units, tools, or formulas
to solve problems.

(6.10)
(8.13) The student uses statistical representations to analyze
data. 
Through
the Activity, students will solve problems by collecting, organizing,
displaying and interpreting data. 
(6.11) (7.13) (8.14)
The student applies Grade 6 mathematics to solve problems connected
to everyday experiences, investigations in other disciplines and
activities in and outside of school.

Through
the Activity, students will select tools such as paper/pencil,
techniques such as mental math, and estimation to solve problems. 
(6.13) (7.15) (8.16)
The student uses logical reasoning to make conjectures and verify
conclusions.

Through the Activity,
students will validate his/her conclusions using mathematical properties
and relationships.

TEKS
for Middle School Technology

How
the TEKS are Integrated into the Lesson

(1) Foundations
The student demonstrates knowledge and appropriate use of hardware
components, software programs, and their connections.

Throughout the lesson,
students will use terminology including, but not limited to, World
Wide Web (WWW), link, Internet, Uniform Resource Locators (URLs),
and web page.

(2) Foundations
The student uses data input skills appropriate to the task.

Students will demonstrate
proficient use of the mouse and keyboard, as they navigate through
the lesson and related web pages.

(3) Foundations
The student complies with the laws and examines the issues regarding
the use of technology in society.

While
following links on the Internet and using the World Wide Web (WWW),
the student will demonstrate proper etiquette and knowledge of acceptable
computer use in the classroom or lab. 
(4) Communication
The student formats digital information for appropriate and
effective communication.

The
students will be required to fill in the activity sheets which are
provided. This activity could be useful in communicating information
of the relationships between mass, volume and concentration.
