Science & Engineering Practices
Analyzing and Interpreting Data - Analyze data to identify design features or characteristics of the components of a proposed process or system to optimize it relative to criteria for success.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.A: Structure and Function - All living things are made up of cells. In organisms, cells work together to form tissues and organs that are specialized for particular body functions.
Systems and System Models - Systems may interact with other systems; they
may have sub-systems and be a part of larger complex systems.
