SIXTH, SEVENTH, and EIGHTH GRADE;
ETS1.A.1 : Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
ETS1.B.1 : Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
ETS1.B.2 : 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.
ETS1.B.3 : Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, orprocess such that an optimal design can be achieved.
PS3.A.1 : Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object.
PS3.A.2 : Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.
PS2.A.2 : Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
