Science and Engineering Practices
NGSS Science & Engineering Practices (SEP's) Addressed by this Module

    Analyzing and Interpreting Data
  • Grades 9-12: Analyze data using tools, technologies, and/or models (e.g., computational, mathematical) in order to make valid and reliable scientific claims.

  • Planning and Carrying Out Investigations
  • Grades 9-12: Plan and conduct an investigation individually and collaboratively to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence, and in the design: decide on types, how much, and accuracy of data needed to produce reliable measurements and consider limitations on the precision of the data (e.g., number of trials, cost, risk, time), and refine the design accordingly.

  • Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking
  • Grades 9-12: Use mathematical representations of phenomena to describe explanations.
