Density of Earth - Using Some Field Data part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Len Vacher, Dept of Geology, University of South Florida
This module addresses the problem of how to determine the density of the earth and has students do some field experiments to get the data they need to answer the problem.

The Earth's Shells - Density vs. Depth part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Len Vacher, Dept of Geology, University of South Florida
In this module, students are asked to devise a way of graphically plotting the density variations with depth in the Earth.

Shaking Ground - Linking Earthquake Magnitude and Intensity part of Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum:General Collection:Examples
Eric Baer, Highline Community College
An in-class activity for connecting earthquake magnitude, shaking, and intensity.

Laboratory Activity: The Sun and Climate part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Peter Selkin, University of Washington-Tacoma Campus
In this physical geography lab, students examine the relationship between solar altitude, solar declination, and temperature regimes. Using data collected in the field, mathematical relationships, and temperature records available on the Internet, students compare the insolation and climate in their location to that of other locations.

Discharge and Sediment Transport in the Field part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Jeff Clark, Lawrence University
In this quantitative field activity, students collect field data on channel geometry, flow velocity, and bed materials. Using these data, they apply flow resistance equations and sediment transport relations to estimate the bankfull discharge and to determine if the flow is sufficient to mobilize the bed.

Angle of Repose part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Eric Baer, Highline Community College
A student activity to determine the angle of repose and what factors determine te angle of repose.

Modeling the interior of the Earth using Seismic Waves part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Eric Baer, Highline Community College
Students use a variety of tools to explore the interior of the Earth in this inquiry activity.

Daisyworld Lab part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Kirsten Menking, Vassar College
Students explore a STELLA model of Daisyworld, a self-regulating system incorporating positive and negative feedbacks.

Here we see it, but what's beneath? Effective geologic cross-section problem solving part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Rob Benson, Adams State College
Students will use suface observations from a map to locate subsurface features using geologic cross-sections using topographic profiles, surface data, assessment of variables and data quality. Students will produce a standard scientific report describing the nature and conclusions of the project.

Investigating an ore deposit: from metal reserve to waste disposal part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Mona Sirbescu, Central Michigan University
