 (1) MST1 Students will use mathematical analysis, scientific inquiry, and engineering design, as appropriate, to pose questions, seek answers, and develop solutions. (1) MST3 Students will understand the concepts of and become proficient with the skills of mathematics, communicate and reason mathematically, and become problem solvers by using appropriate tools and strategies, through the integrated study of number sense and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and statistics and probability. (1) MST4 Students will understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical setting and living environment and recognize the historical development of ideas in science. (1) MST6 Students will understand the relationships and common themes that connect mathematics, science, and technology and apply the themes to these and other areas of learning.
