Standards:

S.3.d Students build knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems, developing ideas and theories and pursuing answers and solutions.
S.4.c Students develop, test and refine prototypes as part of a cyclical design process.
S.4.d Students exhibit a tolerance for ambiguity, perseverance and the capacity to work with open-ended problems.
S.5.c Students break problems into component parts, extract key information, and develop descriptive models to understand complex systems or facilitate problem-solving.
S.6.c Students communicate complex ideas clearly and effectively by creating or using a variety of digital objects such as visualizations, models or simulations.
S.7.c Students contribute constructively to project teams, assuming various roles and responsibilities to work effectively toward a common goal.
2-DA-09 Refine computational models based on the data they have generated. (P5.3, P4.4)
ELA-Literacy.SL.6.1b Follow rules for collegial discussions, set specific goals and deadlines, and define individual roles as needed.
Math.Practice.MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
Math.Practice.MP7 Look for and make use of structure.
ELA-Literacy.WHST.6-8.3a Note: Students' narrative skills continue to grow in these grades. The Standards require that students be able to incorporate narrative elements effectively into arguments and informative/explanatory texts. In science and technical subjects, students must be able to write precise enough descriptions of the step-by-step procedures they use in their investigations or technical work that others can replicate them and (possibly) reach the same results.
