Air-sea Interactions: Activities in Oceanography part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Steve LaDochy, California State University, Los Angeles

This online set of activities help students learn properties of ocean waves, wind-wave relationships and properties of tsunamis.

Three-Point Problem by Simultaneous Linear Equations part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

William Frangos, James Madison University

Students are introduced to the use of linear algebra in an intuitive and accessible way, through classroom activity and homework set. The familiar three-point problem is cast in terms of three dimensional analytic geometry, fostering understanding of mathematical models for simple geometric forms.

Viscosity of the Mantle: Constraints from Post-glacial Rebound part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

David Kohlstedt, University of Minnesota

This laboratory experiment emphasizes the exponential nature of post-glacial rebound and reinforces the relationship between the rate of rebound and the viscosity of the mantle.

Assessing the error of linear and planar field data using Fisher statistics part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Vince Cronin, Baylor University

Instruction on use of Fisher statistics to determine the mean and 95% confidence interval of geological vectors, lines or planes, with examples, problems and an Excel spreadsheet for computation.
