NON-INTEGRATED NGSS


BIOZONE's NGSS Series encompasses all dimensions of the standards (Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas), addressing the program content through a wide range of engaging student-focused activities. Through completion of the activities, students build a sound understanding of science and engineering practices, recognize and understand the concepts that link all domains of science, and build the knowledge base required to integrate the three dimensions of the standards to meet the program's performance expectations.

The Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) provide the structural framework for the book, dividing it into four sections, each prefaced by a concept map. Each chapter provides activities to specifically address the performance expectations arising from the DCIs.

Science and Engineering Practices are supported throughout with activities designed to develop competence in all aspects of the eight practices. A supporting introductory chapter provides students with additional opportunities to establish many of the mathematical and inquiry-based skills that they will employ throughout the book.

Crosscutting concepts are identified throughout, allowing students to make connections between core ideas in different domains of science.

Nature of Science: Students develop an understanding of the nature of science through incorporation of its basic principles into activities. Where appropriate, detail is provided in key boxes so that students can better understand both the concepts and practices of science.

Engineering Design: The Engineering Design component of NGSS has been incorporated as appropriate through activities that engage the student in the solution of real world problems. This aspect of the standards provides an exciting opportunity for students to apply their knowledge in a creative way, with due consideration to social and environmental considerations.
