  1. design, critique, and carry out experiments in order to investigate scientific questions and/or propose solutions
  2. collect, interpret, and analyze data in order to solve a defined problem
  3. apply mathematics to express relationships efficiently and accurately
  4. draw evidence-based conclusions from data in order to make informed decisions;
  5. construct, interpret, and refine models (scientific and mathematical) to explain the physical and natural world
  6. effectively communicate scientific ideas and evidence-based arguments to an appropriate audience through written and oral means
  7. evaluate the validity of arguments that rely on scientific reasoning presented in the popular press and informational sources
