Standard 12: Investigation and Experimentation  10% of Star Exam
Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations. As a basis for understanding this concept and addressing the content in the other four strands, students should develop their own questions and perform investigations. Students will:
State Standard: Select and use appropriate tools and technology (such as computerlinked probes, spreadsheets and graphing calculators) to perform tests, collect data, abaktze relationships, and display data. 
Students Will Be Able To:

State Standard: Identify and communicate sources of unavoidable experimental error. 
Students Will Be Able To:

State Standard: Identify possible reasons for inconsistent results, such as sources of error or uncontrolled.

Examples include irradiation of food, cloning of animals by somatic cell nuclear transfer, choice of energy sources, and land and water use decisions in California. 
Students Will Be Able To:

State Standard: Know that when an observation does not agree with an accepted scientific theory, sometimes the observation is mistaken or fraudulent (e.g., Piltdown Man fossil or unidentified flying objects), and sometimes the theory is wrong (Ptolmaic model of movement of the sun, moon, and planets).
