The Search for Solutions lays out the fundemental concepts used to solve problems: curiousity, patterns, scale and change, models, evidence, feedback, theories, and predictions. These fundemental concepts drive all scientific endevours including (with guidance) those of our students.

The Search for Solutions


Standard 03: USING UNIFYING CONCEPTS AND THEMES: Students use concepts and themes such as system, change, scale, and model to help them understand and explain the natural world.
