Structure and Function: Investigating or designing new systems or structures requires a detailed examination of the properties of different materials, the structures of different components, and connections of components to reveal its function and/or solve a problem.
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. (Plan and Carry Out an Investigation) (Entrepreneurial: Inquiry/Analysis)
Use mathematical representations of phenomena to describe explanations. (Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking) (Entrepreneurial: Critical thinking/Problem solving)
Patterns: Different patterns may be observed at each of the scales at which a system is studied and can provide evidence for causality in explanations of phenomena.
Connections to Nature of Science: Science Models, Laws, Mechanisms, and Theories Explain Natural Phenomena. Theories and laws provide explanations in science. Laws are statements or descriptions of the relationships among observable phenomena.
