How often do earthquakes occur? part of Examples

Students use spreadsheet tables and charts to explore the relationship between earthquake magnitude and frequency.

Introduction to Hazard and Risk: Part 2 part of Examples

Students continue their introduction to Excel by building spreadsheets that estimate the risk of a major earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone to Benton County, Oregon.

Yellowstone! A National Park on a Hot Spot part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students use foundational math to study the velocity of the North American Plate over the hot spot, the volume of eruptive materials from it, and the recurrence interval of the cataclysmic eruptions.

Shifting Sands: Quantifying Shoreline and Dune Migration at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students use weighted averages and data from air photos from 1939 to 2005 to calculate the rate of retreat of the shoreline and the advance of the front of dunes along the shoreline.

Getting to the Point: Exploring Tectonic Motion at Point Reyes National Seashore part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students use foundational math to calculate such earthquake-related numbers as fault displacement rate and earthquake recurrence interval associated with the San Andreas Fault at Point Reyes National Seashore.

Dunes, Boxcars, and Ball Jars: Mining the Great Lakes Shores part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course.
