  • NGSS HS-ETS1-2. Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
  • NGSS HS-ETS1-3. Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and trade-offs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.

Maryland:

  • MD 10.AP.M.01 Systematically analyze problems, using top down design, in order to break them down into smaller components, using procedures, modules, and/or objects to implement abstractions.
  • MD 10.AP.A.01 Develop prototypes that use algorithms (e.g., sequencing, selection, iteration, recursion, etc.) to solve computational problems by leveraging prior student knowledge and personal interest.
  • MD 10.AP.A.02 Design and implement an algorithm to play a game against a human opponent or solve a problem.
  • MD 10.AP.M.01 Systematically analyze problems, using top down design, in order to break them down into smaller components, using procedures, modules, and/or objects to implement abstractions.
  • MD 10.AP.PD.03 Evaluate and refine computational artifacts to improve usability, accessibility, and efficiency.
  • MD 10.AP.PD.04 Design and develop computational artifacts while working collaboratively.

DC:

  • DC P.1.10 Select and use appropriate tools and technology to perform tests, collect data, analyze relationships, and display data.
