Standards:

  • Generate & compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria & constraints of the problem.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Elementary /// Engineering Design)

  • Plan & carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled & failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Elementary /// Engineering Design)

  • Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Primary /// Engineering Design )

  • Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Engineering Design)

  • Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Engineering Design)

  • Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Engineering Design)

  • Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 3 /// Physical Science /// Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions )

  • Make observations and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion. [Examples: a child swinging in a swing, a ball rolling back and forth in a bowl, and two children on a see-saw.] "

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 3 /// Physical Science /// Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions )

  • Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Physical Science /// Energy )

  • Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. [Examples : electric circuits that convert electrical energy into motion energy of a vehicle, light, or sound; and, a passive solar heater that converts light into heat. Examples of constraints: materials, cost, or design time.]

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Grade 4 /// Physical Science /// Energy )

  • Analyze data to support the claim that Newton's second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, & its acceleration. [Objects subject to a net unbalanced force, e.g., an object falling , rolling down a ramp, or a moving- pulled by a constant force.]

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Physical Science /// Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions)

  • Design, build, & refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// High School /// Physical Science /// Energy)

  • Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object & the mass of the object.

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Physical Science /// Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions )

  • Construct & interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object & to the speed of an object. [Emphasis is on descriptive relationships between kinetic energy & mass separately from kinetic energy & speed.]

    (Next Generation Science Standards /// Middle School /// Physical Science /// Energy )

  • Construct, use, & present arguments to support the claim that when the motion energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
