MS-ETS1-1:  Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the environment that may limit possible solutions.

MS-ETS1-2:  Evaluate competing design solutions using a systemic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

MS-ETS1-3:  Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.

Toothpick Bridges Students will take Monday to research bridge designs, sketch out a simple illustration, and we will spend the remainder of our week in the high school science labs working. Since the glue will need periods of time to cure, we will work for a day, take a break for MStep testing, work again, and break again for the weekend. By next week, students should be finishing bridges and we will be testing to determine which student will win the competition. none

6.SP.B.5.c Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.

7.SP.A.1 Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.

7.SP.A.2 Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions. For example, estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly sampled survey data. Gauge how far off the estimate or prediction might be.
