## 1. 6. Construct Explanations and Design Solutions

### 1.1. Theory: Start, Get an idea, perform an experiment, experiment either proves theory to explain universe or you have to start again; new evidence can either refine and improve a theory or start a revolution where you have to go back to the beginning

### 1.2. Students need to understand that a hypothesis is a plausible explanation

### 1.3. The cycle of engineering is to PLAN, DESIGN, CREATE, EVALUATE and this is a cyclic process that happens multiple times

### 1.4. GOAL OF ELEMENTARY: construct explanations ie. owl pellets or plant growth and design solutions ie. use the environment around you to come up with a problem and find multiple solutions.

## 2. 4. Analyzing and Interpreting Data

### 2.1. GOAL is for Students: * learn how to analyze data * learn different ways to organize and graph the data * evaluate the data they found as well as others * use mathematics to explain the data

### 2.2. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: use a SCIENCE NOTEBOOK: drawing, numbers, words and graphing should all be shown so students practice all these skills from day one.

## 3. 7. Engage in Argument of Evidence

### 3.1. Informal Arguments: people talking

### 3.2. Formal Arguments: support with evidence

### 3.3. GOAL OF ELEMENTARY: have students construct arguments and support ideas with evidence and be able to critique each other's arguments with no ego, they can guess and argue evidence in a constructive manner.

## 4. 5. Mathematics and Science

### 4.1. Math is at the core of Science: it allows students to work with data

### 4.2. Quantities and Units: Students should be using rulers, projectors, thermometers etc. to collect data and graph from Day One.

### 4.3. Mathematical Relationships: First students should use words and then transition to the mathematical symbols to explain and show the relationship/thinking. Students should have an understanding of spreadsheets even at a most basic level.

## 5. 1. Asking Questions and Defining Problems

### 5.1. Science

5.1.1. study of everything ex. Albert Einstein used questions to figure out how things work

5.1.2. phenomenon: students inquire through questions
