Choosing Papers part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
A procedure for having students dive directly into the literature to select papers that are appropriate for the class as a whole to read and discuss. The activity provides constraints and a format for sorting the chosen papers.
Environmental Analysis part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Courses
Humans have had a dramatic impact on the chemistry of the earth's environment. In this course, we study the chemistry of molecules in the air, water, and soil. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the chemistry in the natural (unpolluted) environment, and the changes which occur due to human activity and pollution. In addition, we will explore the methods which are used to measure pollutants in the environment and their applicability, as well as regulatory issues of relevance to the topics studied.

Adding climate modeling into ENTS 287, Climate Science part of CISMI:For Carleton Faculty:Curriculum Development Projects
A variety of exercises to familiarize students with the EdGCM global circulation model have been developed. Students carry these out in groups and individually, and gives students the opportunity to explore finding data in IPCC reports, setting up simulations, and analyzing the output of the climate model.

FOCUS part of Broadening Access to the Sciences:Case Studies
FOCUS supports students through their entry into the study of science/math at Carleton and as they continue in the curriculum by creating a cohort which enrolls in classes together (in so far as this makes sense), meets regularly in a colloquium throughout the first year, and has an opportunity for work study in the sciences.
