14 Osborn’s Rules for Brainstorming 1. Criticism is ruled out: Judgment of idea is suspended until a later screening or evaluation session. Be positive! Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

15 2. Free-Wheeling is welcomed: The wilder the ideas, the better! Even off-beat, impractical suggestions may trigger in other members, suggestions which might not otherwise occur to them. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

16 3. Quantity is Wanted: The greater the number of ideas, the greater likelihood of winners. It is easier to pare down a long list of ideas than puff up a short list. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

17 4. Combination and Improvement are Sought: In addition to contributing ideas of their own, students should suggest how suggestions by others can be turned into better ideas or how two or more ideas could be combined into a still better idea.

18 Problem Solving Making Decisions – GOOD Choices When making decisions and/or choices, we learn from others. We use their wisdom! We ask others their experience of or on a particular subject. Before we begin this process, we should look at the person (or better, persons). We should get advice/learn from/someone……. 1. That you admire, or Trust 2.Who has been through the Fire Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

19 3. Who is at the place you want to be 4.Who has made correct choices 5.Who has vision (goals) 6. Who has a high self-esteem – not pride 7.Who is respected by many 8. Someone who knows you well Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

24 State the problem A problem can't be solved if it isn't understood. Form a Hypothesis This is a possible solution to the problem formed after gathering information about the problem. The term "research" is properly applied here. Test the Hypothesis An experiment is performed to determine if the hypothesis solves the problem or not. Experiments are done to gather data. It is very important that good observations and records are made during an experiment. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

25 Collect the Data This is where you record your observations, measurements, or information from experiment. Analyze the Data Just what does all that data indicate about answering the problem you are solving? Draw Conclusions After examining the data from the experiment, conclusions can be drawn. In its simplest form, the conclusion will be "yes" the hypothesis was. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

27 The Universal System Model Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

28 Steps Example I want to ride my skateboard down the street Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

29 INPUT I want to ride my skateboard down the street Resources = me, skateboard, and hill Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

30 PROCESS The wheels spin and the board travels down the road Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

31 OUTPUT The board moves forward and you ride it (without falling we hope) Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

32 FEEDBACK All of the information you receive that causes you to make adjustments. (Example: you see a puddle and shift your weight to steer around it.) Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

33 Definitions Input: Command given to the system to reach the desired result. Ingredients that go into the system (tools, information, people, time, energy, materials) Process: The action part of the system, the part that takes place to make things happen Output: The result of the system Feedback: Information about the output that is used to adjust the system Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.

34 Two (2) Types of Systems Open-loop and closed-loop Open loop systems have no way of adjusting to changing conditions (closing your eyes riding a skate board) Closed loop systems can change under different conditions (eyes open riding a skate board) Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved.
