In other words, students identify problems; seek alternative solutions form various perspectives; determine solutions with consequences in mind; and evaluate the process and solution, considering the effect of the actions on self, others, and the environment.

For example, students can investigate different alternatives to make the classroom cooler, considering cost, benefits, constraints, and possible trade-offs. Students may eventually design and propose possible modifications to their existing classroom.

Domain 1: How Humans Think While Understanding the Natural World

Science and Technology in Society

Standard 05: RELATING THE NATURE OF TECHNOLOGY TO SCIENCE: Students use the problem-solving process to address current issues involving human adaptation in the environment.

Standard Number:1

K-3

Identify a simple problem.

Gather information needed to solve the problem.

Determine relevent information, draw conclusions and arrive at alternative solutions.

Make inferences for each alternative solution and select a solution based on information collected.

State solution as a recommendation and give reasons for the decision made.

4-5

Identify and state a problem.

Collect, organize, and anylyze information form various sources and identify possible alternaties based on information.

Make inferences for each alternative solution and select a tentative solution.

Test the solution and document the results.

Analyze the results and propose recommendations/modifications to the solution.
