Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution is primarily driven by four factors: (1) the ability of a species to expand in number, (2) heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce.
The emphasis is on using evidence to illustrate how each of the four factors influences the number of species, habits, morphology, or physiology in terms of capacity to compete for scarce resources and human survival and adaptation…
The emphasis is on using evidence to illustrate how each of the four factors influences the number of organisms, habits, morphology, or physiology in terms of ability to compete for scarce resources, human survival, and species adaptation. Mathematical models, such as simple distribution graphs and proportional reasoning, may be used as proof.

(1) the ability for a species’ population to develop, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of organisms best able to live and reproduce in the environment.
[Clarification Statement: The focus is on using evidence to illustrate the impact of each of the four factors on the number of organisms, habits, morphology, or physiology in terms of ability to compete for limited resources, human survival, and species adaptation. Mathematical models, such as simple distribution graphs and proportional reasoning, may be used as evidence.] [Assessment Boundary: Other processes of evolution, such as genetic drift, gene transfer by migration, and co-evolution, are not included in this assessment.]

HS-LS4-2: Natural Selection’s Four Factors

Hs-ls4-1

Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the setting. (Theory of Causation and Effect)
Error correction Observation: The emphasis is on using evidence to illustrate how each of the four factors influences the number of organisms, habits, morphology, or physiology in terms of ability to compete for scarce resources, human survival, and species adaptation. Mathematical models, such as simple distribution graphs and proportional reasoning, may be used as proof. Observation Defining Line: Other processes of evolution, such as genetic drift, gene transfer by migration, and co-evolution, are not included in this assessment.
