Assignment directed by Ethan Whale, Oakland Community College, based of the internet source and mobile application, "Good Guide", created by Dara O'Rourke, Good Guide Inc. ,
New lengths of teaching the ideas of sustainable and renewable energies to late high school and early college students.
Choosing Between Home Appliances: Benefits to the Planet and Your Wallet part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Corri Taylor, Wellesley College
Students research various options for new appliances and make purchasing decisions based not merely on purchase price, but also on energy efficiency, which has implications for the planet AND for longer-term personal finances. Students calculate the "payback period" for the more energy efficient appliance and calculate long-term savings.
Plastic Waste Production part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
In this exercise, students will use data to predict the amount of plastic waste in the next ten years.
Control Chart Project part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
This is a short assignment that asks students to find some data related to sustainability and determine whether the mean of that data set is statistically stable, and whether the process being measured is in control or out of control. It is often used for quality control in a production process, but in this activity, it is used to see if an ecosystem process is stable and healthy or disrupted (out of control.)
