As a basis for understanding this concept, and to address the content in this grade, students should develop their own questions and perform investigations. Students:
B.1.1. Know the elements of scientific methodology (identification of a problem, hypothesis formulation and prediction, performance of experimental tests, analysis of data, falsification, developing conclusions, reporting results) and be able to use a sequence of those elements to solve a problem or test a hypothesis. Also understand the limitations of any single scientific method (sequence of elements) in solving problems.
 
B.1.10. Select and use appropriate tools and technology to perform tests, collect data, analyze relationships, and display data. (The focus is on manual graphing, interpreting graphs, and mastery of metric measurements and units, with supplementary use of computers and electronic data gathering when appropriate.)
