USA National Standards for grades 6 - 8 and 9 - 10.

Below outlines the curriculum standards for teachers in the USA. The standards cover the Next Generation Science standards, the International Standards for Technology Education and the Common core Math standards.

The first table outlines where the Beginners curriculum meets the standards for grade 6 – 8.

The second table maps where the Intermediate curriculum and the Advanced curriculum meets the standards for 9 – 10.

MS-ETS1- Engineering Design
The uses of technologies and limitations on their use are driven by individual or societal needs, desires, and values. (MS-LS2-5)
Define a design problem that can be solved through the development of an object, tool, process or system and includes multiple criteria and constraints, including scientific knowledge that may limit possible solutions. (MS-ETS1-1)
All human activity draws on natural resources and has both short and long-term consequences, positive as well as negative, for the health of people and the natural environment.(MS-ETS1-1)
Develop a model to generate data to test ideas (MS-ETS1-4)
Undertake a design project, engaging in the design cycle, to construct and/or implement a solution that meets specific design criteria and constraints. (MS-PS1-6).
ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) standards
Students understand the fundamental concepts of technology operations, demonstrate the ability to choose, use and troubleshoot current technologies and are able to transfer their knowledge to explore emerging technologies.(1d)
Students plan and employ effective research strategies to locate information and other resources for their intellectual or creative pursuits.(3a)
Students select and use digital tools to plan and manage a design process that considers design constraints and calculated risks.(4b)
Students choose the appropriate platforms and tools for meeting the desired objectives of their creation or communication.(6a)
Students communicate complex ideas clearly and effectively by creating or using a variety of digital objects such as visualizations, models or simulations.(6c)
Commoncore math standards grade 6 - 8
Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.G.A.3
Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale.CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.G.A.1
Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions.CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.7.G.A.2
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.A.2

H.S. Engineering Design
New technologies can have deep impacts on society and the environment, including some that were not anticipated. Analysis of costs and benefits is a critical aspect of decisions about technology. (HS-ETS1-1) (HS-ETS1-3)
Humanity faces major global challenges today, such as the need for supplies of clean water and food or for energy sources that minimize pollution, which can be addressed through engineering. These global challenges also may have manifestations in local communities. (HS-ETS1-1)
When evaluating solutions, it is important to take into account a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, and to consider social, cultural, and environmental impacts. (HS-ETS1-3)
Analyze complex real-world problems by specifying criteria and constraints for successful solutions. (HS-ETS1-1)
Both physical models and computers can be used in various ways to aid in the engineering design process. (HS-ETS1-4)
H.S. Human Sustainability
The sustainability of human societies and the biodiversity that supports them requires responsible management of natural resources. (HS-ESS3-3)
Scientists and engineers can make major contributions by developing technologies that produce less pollution and waste and that preclude ecosystem degradation. (HS-ESS3-4)
Modern civilization depends on major technological systems. (HS-ESS3-1),(HS-ESS3-3)
Engineers continuously modify these technological systems by applying scientific knowledge and engineering design practices to increase benefits while decreasing costs and risks. (HS-ESS3-2),(HS-ESS3-4)
Analysis of costs and benefits is a critical aspect of decisions about technology. (HS-ESS3-2)
ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) standards
Students articulate and set personal learning goals, develop strategies leveraging technology to achieve them and reflect on the learning process itself to improve learning outcomes.(1a)
Students understand the fundamental concepts of technology operations, demonstrate the ability to choose, use and troubleshoot current technologies and are able to transfer their knowledge to explore emerging technologies.(1d)
Students build knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems, developing ideas and theories and pursuing answers and solutions.(3d)
Students select and use digital tools to plan and manage a design process that considers design constraints and calculated risks.(4b)
Students choose the appropriate platforms and tools for meeting the desired objectives of their creation or communication.(6a)
Students communicate complex ideas clearly and effectively by creating or using a variety of digital objects such as visualizations, models or simulations.(6c)
Students explore local and global issues and use collaborative technologies to work with others to investigate solutions.(7d)
