            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.1.Introduction:

              Humans are dependent upon and have an impact on their environment. Students should recognize how human decisions cause environmental changes to occur.

              Students should be given opportunities to identify and investigate the factors that positively or negatively affect the physical environment and its resources.

            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.2.Introduction:
              Every organism requires a set of instructions for specifying its traits. This information is found in the genes of cells. As organisms reproduce, these instructions are passed from one generation to the next.
            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.3.Introduction:
              Evolution is the change in a species over time. Millions of diverse species are alive today. Generally this diversity of species developed through gradual processes of change occurring over many generations. Species acquire many of their unique characteristics through biological adaptation, which involves the selection of naturally occurring variations in populations (natural selection). Biological adaptations are differences in structures, behaviors, or physiology that enhance survival and reproductive success in a particular environment.
            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.4.Introduction:
              The survival of a species depends on the ability of a living organism to produce offspring. Living things go through a life cycle involving both reproductive and developmental stages. Development follows an orderly sequence of events.
            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.5.Introduction:
              All organisms must be able to obtain and use resources, grow, reproduce, and maintain stable internal conditions while living in a constantly changing external environment. Organisms respond to internal or environmental stimuli.
            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.6.Introduction:
              An environmentally aware citizen should have an understanding of the natural world. All organisms interact with one another and are dependent upon their physical environment. Energy and matter flow from one organism to another. Matter is recycled in ecosystems. Energy enters ecosystems as sunlight, and is eventually lost from the community to the environment, mostly as heat.
            • Introduction - MST4.I.LE.7.Introduction:
              The number of organisms an ecosystem can support depends on the resources available and physical factors: quantity of light, air, and water; range of temperatures; soil composition. To ensure the survival of our planet, people have a responsibility to consider the impact of their actions on the environment.
