Scientists and engineers use mathematics and quantitative thinking to representing variables, behaviors, and their relationships. Mathematics is used to create models and simulations; statistically analyze data; and recognize, communicate, and look for relationships with other variables.
The products of science are explanations and the products of engineering are solutions.
A key practice of successful scientists and engineers is the ability to clearly communicate the ideas and methods they develop. Being able to review and critique the ideas of others are fundamental activities of professional STEM professionals.
Argumentation is an important practice whereas the scientist develops explanations using evidence and reasoning to explain observed phenomena.

The Biosphere includes all life on Earth including life living on the Earth's Geosphere and in Hydrosphere, including humans and all organic matter that has not yet decomposed. This important sphere distinguishes Earth from all other planets in our solar system as life evolved (and con
Engage Your Students in Science Research Projects:
1. Choose an appropriate topic:
Within the science education community, there is a shift in focus from content driven instruction to that of the processes and practices associated with the acquisition of scientific knowledge.
Why Should Students Research Earth System Science?
- Because We Live on Earth - No matter where you eat, sleep, play, pray, or work, we are all constantly connected to Earth's System's plants, animals, weather, oceans, etc.
