Westward Ho! How Far is Yonder Mountain part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Len Vacher, Dept of Geology, University of South Florida
PowerPoint module leading students through development of a spreadsheet to calculate the distance of a mountain peak from coplanar vertical angles shot from two points a known distance apart.

Measuring specific gravity to answer questions about subduction. part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Leslie Kanat, Johnson State College
Use a quadruple beam balance to measure the specific gravity of the minerals and rocks that are common in oceanic and continental lithosphere. The results of the calculations are tied to numerous concepts described in previous lectures.

Question of the Day: Ocean Waves #2 part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lectures:Question of the Day
Surfers know that the best waves from distant storms have periods of about 14 seconds. The object of this activity is to compute how long it takes the 14 second period waves to travel 6,000 km across the pacific. ...

One day it is too hot and other days it is too cold. Do we need to replace the HVAC system? part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Monika Kiss
This project will allow students to create a mathematical model to help in making decision about replacing HVAC units on a large scale.

A Monarchy Deposed: The Demise of the Monarch Butterfly part of SISL:2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Daniel Abel
Monarch butterflies (scientific name: Danaus plexippus) migrate annually to forests in central Mexico from Canada and California. Those surviving the 1200 - 2800 mile migration overwinter in Mexico. In this activity, students will learn about the conservation biology of monarch butterflies, threats to their survival, the implications of their potential extinction, and ways to protect the species.
