Analyze a major global challenge to specify qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions that account for societal needs and wants.
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.
Interact with content-specific models and simulations (e.g. ecosystems, epidemics) to support learning and research.Evaluate what kinds of problems can be solved using modeling and simulation. Analyze the degree to which a computer model accurately represents the real world.Use modeling and simulation to represent and understand natural phenomena. Provide examples of interdisciplinary applications of computational thinking.
