Bakken Oil From Shale, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Global Oil Economics part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Students work with oil production data to assess the environmental impact, and economic controls, of oil production and consumption.
Learning Sustainability with Sim City part of Activities
Sim City is a computer game that has the player design a city. They become the mayor. While designing the city from ground, they can choose sustainaiblity energy options such as wind farms, geothermal, and solar. The game includes greening options and pollution factors. Teachers in a variety of disciplines can utilize this to bring their core course concepts to life.
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.
Biking vs Driving part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Deirdre Smeltzer, Eastern Mennonite University
How much difference would biking to work one day per week make?
How Biodiverse is Lake Superior? An exercise in proportions. part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
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, Upper Iowa University; Sharareh Nikbakht, Appalachian State University
The activity allows for learning about salt marshes ecosystem and practicing of basic math in estimations.
Trawl Data Exploration in Multivariable Calculus part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
This activity is based on exploring the data collected from all trawls around the Chincoteague Bay from 2005 - 2014. Students can construct their own contour diagrams as they cross section the data based on their own choices. This database could also be used to support similar activities in statistics or graph theory.
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.
Estimating OUR Carbon Footprint part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Ben Galluzzo, Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania; Jean McGivney-Burelle; Rikki Wagstrom, Metropolitan State University
Hybrid Vehicles: Are They Worth It? part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
In this project, students analyze the costs of gasoline nationwide. They also investigate the cost-effectiveness of purchasing a new hybrid vehicle as opposed to purchasing a new vehicle that runs solely on gasoline.
