### Course Description:

This course contains 9 lessons.

## Standards Covered

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP2

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP3

Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

### 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-PS2-4

Use mathematical representations of Newton’s Law of Gravitation and Coulomb’s Law to describe and predict the gravitational and electrostatic forces between objects.

### HS-PS3-4

Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (second law of thermodynamics).

### HS-ETS1-2

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.

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP7

Look for and make use of structure.

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP8

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP6

Attend to precision.

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP1

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP4

Model with mathematics.

### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP5

Use appropriate tools strategically.
