Students demonstrate an understanding of how social and historical perspectives relate to the contributions that many people make to the development of more reliable and
comprehensive understandings of the natural world. This includes demonstrating an understanding that there are different ways to carry out scientific investigation;
valid investigations can be repeated by many people with similar results; and scientific discovery is an ongoing process that will change ideas with new discoveries.
