Standards in this Framework

Standard Description
6.CC.1 Collect and document evidence to share information with others in multiple media forms.
6.CC.2 Communicate the solution(s) of a problem/analysis either orally, visually, or in writing, including process steps, findings, or conclusions.
6.CC.3 Identify, implement, and assign roles and responsibilities to collaborate in various group settings (i.e., online, onsite and/or hybrid) and situations.
6.CC.4 Communicate specific constraints and criteria established for an investigation.
6.CC.5 Evaluate competing solutions or arguments in a systematic way based on qualitative and/or quantitative evidence.
6.DM.1 Use multiple systems of measurement (i.e., standard and metric) and data sets (e.g., plots,tables, graphs, charts) defined in grade level content standards to analyze real-world scenarios and the mathematical relationships represented by the data.
6.DM.2 Construct visual representations (e.g., bar graphs, charts) to determine patterns or statistical analysis (e.g., mean, median) defined in grade level content standards.
6.DM.3 Use approximations and evaluate reasonableness of observations, results, and solutions throughout processes.
6.DM.4 Choose data sets and analysis methods to support the inquiry process.
6.IPS.1 Conduct or extend an original investigation, analyze results, iterate, and revise to improve the design.
6.IPS.2 Determine one or more viable solutions using data and information to resolve a scenario given criteria and constraints.
6.IPS.3 Integrate processes and methodologies across disciplines based on content specific standards to incorporate multiple sources of evidence to support defining a solution.
6.AM.1 Interpret and evaluate relationships among sets of data (e.g., distance-time graph).
6.AM.2 Use coordinate planes or number lines to examine information and represent solutions.
6.AM.3 Use models to compare and contrast different systems and explain the factors that influence them.
6.AM.4 Use and revise models to describe, test, and predict phenomena or solutions.
6.IDL.1 Identify and evaluate the impact of technology when selecting tools to solve a problem in order to determine the most effective solution.
6.IDL.2 Review and compile information from multiple sources to solve a problem.
6.IDL.3 Describe how solutions or technologies are adapted to meet the changing needs and wants of individuals or communities
