Sound Science
Peg Balachowski and Pamela Pape-Lindstrom, Everett Community College
An activity for a math/biology linked learning community in which students will collect, organize and analyze data related to the health of Puget Sound; experience the design of experiments in the sciences; apply mathematics to real biological issues that affect their lives; and develop an awareness of the personal and professional usefulness of mathematics, biology and modeling. Statistic students will act as consultants to the biology students and Biology students will in turn act as software analysts to help analyze trends as models are created.

How Did This Landscape Form? A Field-Based Exercise to Enhance Awareness of the Natural Environment
Lyn Gualtieri, Seattle University
In this activity students will investigate a landform (such as a waterfall or lake) in the field and apply the scientific method to come up with a geologic hypothesis. The focus of the activity is on making observations of the natural environment and fostering a "sense of place."

Town Planning using Geological Constraints
Tracy Furutani, North Seattle Community College
Students are divided into teams, each charged with writing a plan for the expansion of a fictional town in the North Cascades foothills. The town council (the instructor) has decided upon several expansion projects, such as an airport and housing subdivisions, and the student teams receive information about the bedrock geology, hydrology, soils, and slope stability of the area. Students present their plans in a open forum to the other students, and there is a vote of the students on the most reasonable science-based plan.
