    The Wonder of Science:

    In this video Paul Andersen shows conceptual thinking in a mini-lesson on probability and prediction. Two examples are included in the video and two additional examples are included in the linked thinking slides.

    Cause - a thing that gives rise to an event
    Effect - an event
    Relationship- interconnection between parts of a system
    Probability - the likelihood of something happening or being the case

    This progression is based on the Crosscutting Concept elements from the NRC document A Framework for K-12 Science Education. "Phenomena may have more than one cause, and some cause and effect relationships in systems can only be described using probability."
