The Costs of Your Commute: Your Money, Your Time, and the Earth part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Charlie Buehrle

This activity has students investigate their own cost, CO2 output, and time for commuting. They then compare their commute to an environmentally conscious alternative by using comparable metrics.

The True Cost of Eggs: Commercial vs. Local part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Caira Bongers

Who Goes There? Estimating Ocean Populations in Chincoteague Bay part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Maria Hernandez; Itnuit Janovitz-Freireich

In this activity students use data to: rank species on the food chain, compute energy flow ratios and estimate fish populations in the Chincoteague Bay. Students also discuss the impact of the ecosystem and humans on this population, with an extension activity calculating the biodiversity of the system.

How Biodiverse is Lake Superior? An exercise in proportions. part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Stephanie Kajpust

Students use critical thinking and algebra to measure and evaluate the biodiversity in Lake Superior.

Salt Marshes: estimation techniques using basic algebra and geometry part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Yelena Meadows; Sharareh Nikbakht

The activity allows for learning about salt marshes ecosystem and practicing of basic math in estimations.

Fitting and Estimating Rates of Change in the Functions Underlying Earth's Bio-Development Over Time part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Alan Ableson; Jennifer Bready

What is happening in our world? How has the temperature changed? Have oxygen and carbon dioxide levels changed? How does this effect biodiversity? In this lab, we will investigate the changes in these four variables over various time periods to see how they relate.

How much energy do you save by doubling insulation? part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Joseph Skufca

Students will be provided the governing equation for steady state heat transfer across a surface. They will use that equation to explore the effect of changing the insulation value on the amount of energy used.

Bakken Oil From Shale, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Global Oil Economics part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Robert McConnell

Students work with oil production data to assess the environmental impact, and economic controls, of oil production and consumption.

Arctic Sea Ice Extent part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Bill Bauldry

Student teams investigate Arctic Sea Ice by analyzing actual data and making predictions. A worthwhile extension is to predict the first year that the Arctic Ocean will be ice free.

How Big is Your Breakfast Footprint? part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Ben Galluzzo, Shippensburg University

Calculation of a carbon footprint resulting from common breakfast choices illustrates the importance of contextualization.
