1. Evaluation

1.1. Tinkering- constant evaluation is occurring

1.2. Science Reports in CER format- Claim, Evidence, Reasoning. Shows you have evaluated the results against your hypthesis.

1.2.1. Then you redefine or redesign

2. Organizing Data

2.1. Graphing data collected during a science experiment

2.2. Creating a spreadsheet and monthly budget document

3. Logical Reasoning

3.1. Logic puzzles in math
