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.

Simple Population Space Usage part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Bill Bauldry
Students find current values for world and US populations, the area of Texas, and the size of the average house in the USA. Students then look at ratios to assess land usage.

Water conservation part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Holly Partridge
Small amounts of water in one home dripping from a faucet can add up to huge monetary and resource losses

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.

Problems for Calculus and Precalculus part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Deb Hughes Hallett
Problems on Energy and Climate for Students in Calculus I and II

Solar panel statistical tests part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Owen Byer
In this activity, students will determine whether there is a statistically significant difference in the number of watts of power produced on individual solar panels at Bryn Mawr College.

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.

Conservation and Restoration in a Local Ecosystem part of Activities
David Koetje, Calvin College; Amy Wilstermann
Students are introduced to a local ecosystem and tasked with observing several sites, identifying features that pose threats or promote resilience at the sites, assessing the overall health of the ecosystem, and formulating recommendations for management of the ecosystem.

Analysis of the Global Climate Change Controversy: A Problem-Based Learning Activity part of Activities
David Koetje, Calvin College; Amy Wilstermann
This is a problem-based learning activity that guides students through a process whereby the class as a whole investigates various stakeholder perspectives on the global climate change controversy. Individual students then reflect on their own perspectives in light of what they have learned.

Climate Change, Communities, and Public Planning: A Problem-Based Learning Activity part of Activities
David Koetje, Calvin College; Amy Wilstermann
In this problem-based learning activity, students develop a case study that "puts a human face" on the effects of global climate change (GCC) on a particular community in the United States. Students work in teams to: discover cultural, economic, and natural features of the community; identify challenges presented by GCC; and identify options for responding to these challenges.
