  Grade Level:   9-12  
  EALR 3:   Application  
  Big Idea:   Application (APP)  
  Core Content:   Science, Technology, and Society                   
  Description:   In prior grades students learn to work with other members of a team to apply the full process of technological design and relevant science concepts to solve problems. In grades 9-12 students apply what they have learned to address societal issues and cultural differences. Students learn that science and technology are interdependent, that science and technology influence society, and that society influences science and technology. Students continue to increase their abilities to work with other students and to use mathematics and information technologies (when available) to solve problems. They transfer insights from those increased abilities when considering local, regional, and global issues. These insights and capabilities will help prepare students to solve societal and personal problems in future years.  
  Content Standard:   9-12 APPB The technological design process begins by defining a problem in terms of criteria and constraints, conducting research, and generating several different solutions.  
 
 
 
Students are expected to:
  • Work collaboratively with other students to generate ideas for solving a problem. Identify criteria and constraints, research the problem, and generate several possible solutions.
