Next Generation Science Standards K-12 Performance Expectations relating to Ocean Exploration.

Elementary School

K: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

• K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
• K-PS2-2. Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.

Grade 2: Earth’s Place in the Universe

• 2-ESS1-1. Use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly.

K-2-ETS1 Engineering Design

• K-2-ETS1-1. Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

Grade 3: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

• 3-PS2-1.Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object
• 3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

• 4-ESS2-2. Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features

Grade 5: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

• 5-PS2-1. Support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down

• 3-5-ETS1-1.Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
• 3-5-ETS1-2. Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
• 3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

Middle School

MS: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

• MS-PS2-2. Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object

MS: Engineering Design

• 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 natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
• MS-ETS1-2. Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic 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.
• MS-ETS1-4. Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.

High School

HS: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

• HS-PS2-1.Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
• HS-PS2-3. Apply scientific and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on a macroscopic object during a collision.
• HS-PS2-6. Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.

HS: Engineering Design

• HS-ETS1-1.Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
•  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.
• HS-ETS1-4. Use a computer simulation to model the impact of proposed solutions to a complex real-world problem with numerous criteria and constraints on interactions within and between systems relevant to the problem.

Ocean Literacy Principles

OLP1: The Earth has one big ocean with many features.

OLP2: The ocean and life in the ocean shape the features of Earth.

OLP4: The ocean makes Earth habitable.

OLP5: The ocean supports a great diversity of life and ecosystems.

OLP6: The ocean and humans are inextricably interconnected.

OLP7: The ocean is largely unexplored.
