SCI.SEP. Science and Engineering Practices (SEP)
SCI.SEP4. Students analyze and interpret data, in conjunction with using crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas, to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.SEP4.A. Analyze and Interpret Data – Students begin to use quantitative approaches to collect data and conduct multiple trials of qualitative observations. (When possible, digital tools should be used.) This includes the following:
SCI.SEP4.A.3-5.2. Analyze and interpret data to make sense of phenomena, using logical reasoning, mathematics, or computation.
SCI.SEP4.A.3-5.3. Compare and contrast data collected by different groups in order to discuss similarities and differences in their findings.
SCI.SEP4.A.3-5.4. Analyze data to refine a problem statement or the design of a proposed object, tool, or process.
SCI.SEP4.A.3-5.5. Use data to evaluate and refine design solutions.
SCI.SEP5. Students use mathematics and computational thinking, in conjunction with using crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas, to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.SEP5.A. Qualitative and Quantitative Data – Students extend quantitative measurements to a variety of physical properties, using computation and mathematics to analyze data and compare alternative design solutions. This includes the following:
SCI.SEP5.A.3-5.2. Describe, measure, estimate, and/or graph quantities such as area, volume, weight, and time to address scientific and engineering questions and problems.
